"Even as growth returns to the banking industry's agenda, financial institutions continue to face many challenges and risks in the post-crisis financial regulatory world," noted Kathy Burger, Editorial Director, Bank Systems & Technology. "Transparency, accountability and deliverables are the top priorities. Accordingly, we're seeing renewed interest in an array of key enabling technology solutions, from core systems, to business intelligence and analytics, to still-evolving offerings in the social media and Web 2.0 space. At this year's Executive Summit, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from some of the industry's most successful players, as well as leading-edge technology companies, about the types of investments that banks need to make to be competitive and profitable in today's still-uncertain financial services environment."

Another highlight of the Executive Summit program will be the 2010 Elite 8 Awards Dinner & Ceremony, honoring eight innovative and successful bank technology executives who will be profiled in Bank Systems & Technology's annual special report, coming out in September 2010.
