Forrester (NASDAQ: FORR) today announced its India Financial Services Webcast Week 2020, featuring five complimentary webcasts held from 5–9 October to help firms reimagine their digital efforts. Accelerating digital capabilities is critical to Indian financial services firms’ success, especially as they need to adapt to changing customer expectations and navigate through the global pandemic and economic stresses.

The webcast series curated for the Indian financial services industry will feature Forrester analysts and industry speakers and focus on topics including reimagining digital operations and experiences, managing platform ecosystems, and driving innovation. These experts will discuss the future of financial services in India, identify key drivers for growth, and share actionable insights to help firms embark on their digital transformation journeys.
