Legal Transformation: The Art of the Possible (Virtual Reality)

12:30–1:00 p.m.
Lisa Bloomberg and Jason Gould, Accenture

Lawyers and in-house legal staff can save more time than ever before thanks to advances in technology. See how robotics process automation, machine learning, and analytics can make the day-to-day processes more efficient and effective, enabling lawyers to focus their efforts on the true high-value work. Come see how today’s legal counsel can leverage virtual reality as well as innovative contract search and remediation tools.

Client Lifecycle Management

1:00–2:00 p.m.
Jon Jones and Kevin O’Neil, Accenture/Fenergo

The client lifecycle management demo highlights how a manual client onboarding/lifecycle management process can be transformed and simplified through an implementation of an end to end onboarding tech platform. Onboarding is a mature and relatively inefficient process within financial institutions that can be transformed via One Process, One Technology Ecosystem, and One Team to better manage the increasing volume of changes associated to client relationships (e.g., onboarding, KYC, AML, offboarding, periodic reviews, regulatory change).

Data Privacy: A Platform for Building Trust-Based Relationships in Financial Services

2:00–2:30 p.m.
Ben Shorten, Accenture

Privacy regulations are top of mind to many firms as they face regulations such as GDPR and California’s recent CCPA, which govern the way consumer data can be handled.
