The Future of B2B Online Banking: The Rise of Machines and the Treasury Professional’s Role in the New World Order

Starting with the industrial revolution, machines have been making people’s lives better. In the past few decades, these machines (computers) have been transforming the finance industry. Many key finance tasks (bookkeeping, check writing, etc.) have already been replaced by computers. This trend continues through the automation of cash operations through host to host connections. As computers continue to do more work, the role of the Treasury professional will become more strategic. In this talk, I will take you through Citi’s connectivity strategy, highlighting the key trends driving this strategy and how we are building our products to take advantage of what’s happening in the market.
