The Tanglin Club, March 13th, 3.00pm to 6.30pm, to be followed by dinner

QA Financial's Singapore Leadership Seminar will bring together senior executives from leading banks and other financial firms to discuss opportunities and challenges posed by automation and AI technologies. As firms invest in increasing automation to deliver better software faster, how can they accelerate app delivery and benchmark their RoI? We’ll also be discussing the critical role of DevOps and CI/CD. 

The Seminar on March 13th will feature speakers from leading banks, and also from both Infosys and QA Financial.

QA Financial's  Leadership Seminars are designed to facilitate the exchange of technical and management ideas in a relaxed but confidential (Chatham House Rule) environment that facilitates networking. 


The Singapore Leadership Seminar is free to attend. If you would like to request an invitation, please get in touch with Jade Mitchell at [email protected]
