Sarat Mohanty, Head of Global Trade Implementation & Transaction Banking, Standard Chartered discussed Digital Customer Experience during the afternoon workshop at 2017 CIO Leaders Summit in Singapore.
Several case studies were examined to illustrate how “customer experience” could help to reposition CIO function/role leading in the new digital world. During the presentation Sarat discussed how technology and automation/digitization has become part of everyone’s day-to-day life and this is no longer a “want”, it is a “need”. It was emphasized companies need to create value proposition around “customer experience” for the product/service they deliver to their clients/customers/consumers, to maintain the leadership position.
