3 Questions For Gianluca D’Imperio
What is the potential impact for organisations as RPA technology develops, including how this may affect jobs and the workforce?
We expect to have main impacts on our internal processes, and for the sake of example within Compliance tasks, Robotics have the potential to automate KYC due diligence and AML investigations as well as to improve and make all the reporting activities towards Supervisory Authorities more efficient.
How does the blockchain technology change the banking eco system?
The use of Blockchain as a foundational technology holds immense possibilities in the financial services eco system too. Apart from the link with cryptocurrencies, we see a lot of opportunities, especially within the Trade Finance environment, where, for example, UniCredit has been involved since 2017 in a consortium (i.e. we.trade) with 9 other EU Banks to leverage on the smart contracts based on the blockchain technology.
How is the back office impacting the Digital Customer Experience?
The back office could have an important role since it manufactures product focused upon innovations. Such innovation is exactly what the Banks need to enhance the customer experience.
