DataArt and Optimity Advisors to Host a Panel on Driving IT Innovation in Capital Markets

New York, NY, October 10, 2017 – DataArt, a global technology consultancy that designs, develops and supports unique software solutions, and Optimity Advisors, a global management consulting firm, will host a panel discussion on how to drive IT innovation while operating mission-critical capital markets systems on November 8 in New York.

“Today’s executives are under numerous pressures, including ever-increasing operating complexity driven by acquisitions, rapid product evolution, increased regulation and the need to integrate and consolidate disparate systems. The systems are expected to be more efficient and cost effective, while requiring less support,” said Alexei Miller, Managing Director, DataArt. “Companies need to change, innovate and experiment quickly – or risk irrelevance. Yet, while moving fast and breaking things sounds great in Silicon Valley, the latter is not an option on Wall Street.”

Topics to be discussed and debated include:

  • Effectively upgrading and operating complex systems at a time of rapid change and unrelenting demand for reliability and performance
  • Executing large-scale business transformation programs powered by effective use of technology
  • Driving strategy and innovation in context of large-scale legacy systems;
  • Choosing the right set of technologies and tools; ‘future-proofing’ when nothing seems future-proof.

The panel will be moderated by Alexei Miller, Managing Director at DataArt, and will feature:

  • James Lee, CTO, Managing Director, DTCC
  • Irfan Motiwala, Managing Director, Moody’s
  • Jeffrey Barrow, CTO, Credit / Fortress Investment Group
  • Zohar Hod, CEO, truePTS

Where: The Yale Club of New York City, 50 Vanderbilt Avenue, New York, NY 10017
