The Spanish banking sector is experiencing a period of profound change following frantic merger and acquisition activity over the past 2 years. As a result, 50 banking entities have become 14 since 2010. These complex new organisations, (Bankia, for example, is made up of 7 different banks), present a significant challenge for IT departments which need to integrate and streamline multiple IT systems and cope with a vast array of SW and HW assets.
Enterprise Ireland wishes to showcase a select number of client companies to the IT directors of these new Spanish banks and present them with simple and competitive solutions that simplify their lives and allow them to get the most from their IT infrastructures (HW & SW), whilst reducing costs and improving efficiencies.
If your company provides IT solutions that address some of the issues facing the new banks in Spain today, then this event is relevant for you.
- Banco Santander
- La Caixa
- + other tier 2 banks
