Introducing KPMG South Africa’ Emerging Tech Unit


 

KPMGlogo"

According to Shamit Govind, who heads up KPMG South Africa’s new Emerging Tech Unit, many technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa have been driven to date by large enterprise resource planning (ERP) companies. However, he believes that with the rise of niche emerging technologies, such as fintechs and agritechs, there is opportunity for more creative thinking around problem-solving.

‘In the past, you would need to take a traditional ERP approach, but at KPMG we believe those norms are no longer valid,’ he says. ‘We’re therefore taking a non-traditional approach that doesn’t look at all-encompassing or enterprise-wide problems facing businesses, but rather identifies unique issues that our clients are facing in specific areas, which we can help them to turn into value-creation.’

KPMG Thought Leadership: Bringing bancassurance into the digital era


Bank and insurance partners must collaborate better to digitally transform insurance delivery.

KPMGlogo"

With consumers' financial needs growing more complex - the bancassurance model remains relevant to support customers holistic needs. However, the potential for banks and insurers to combine forces, expand their reach and cross-sell their services is sometimes stunted by siloed operations and cumbersome sales and compliance processes.

Attending Matchi technology member firms share their perspectives on the recently held Polish Open Banking Day

Matchilogo"


The second Open Banking and PSD2 challenge was recently hosted by the Polish Banks Association and KPMG Poland, which culminated in the 2019 Open Banking Day on 7 March in Warsaw. The 10 finalists were invited to present their solutions to decision-makers from Polish banks and insurance companies in one-on-one sessions. We asked for feedback on the event. Here’s what they had to say.

Matchi Emerging Tech Lead, Sashreka Pillay, attended the event and had this to share: “Poland is a hive of activity with key representatives in the regions advocating the opportunities which the new PSD2 regulations can bring. The Polish Banking Association and KPMG Poland teams hosted an inviting session which paved the way for insightful discussions. Findings from their report, launched at the event, underpinned the topics of conversation by esteemed panellists and speakers. Of course it was such a pleasure having excellent Matchi member firms participate in co-ordinated meetings with interested financial institutions. Their presence did well to set the tone that emerging technology was here to help.”
