Press Release

Leaders in Enterprise Technology, Including Mike Lynch, CEO and Founder, Autonomy; Simon Goodman, CTO, Marshall Wace; and Stanley Young of NYSE Technologies Will Discuss Emerging Trends and Strategies

LONDON -- Bloomberg LINK is convening some of Europe’s most influential technology leaders and executives from leading companies in the financial services industry for the first- ever Bloomberg Enterprise Technology Summit in London.

The Summit, to be held on December 6th at London’s Millbank Tower, will feature panel discussions and one-on-one interviews designed to get to the core of the issues most relevant to CTOs, CIOs and senior executives making the decision on where, when and how much to invest in technology.

Speakers at the Summit will examine how Europe’s sovereign debt crisis is impacting investments in IT infrastructure and priorities, as well as how the region’s financial companies are managing, analyzing and securing large and complex volumes of information. Among other topics, participants will debate whether or not Europe is lagging behind North America in moving to the cloud, the best platforms for trade execution and the most efficient technology to handle the demands of high frequency trading.

The Summit will also explore two decades of disruptive innovation in the technology and financial services industries, and will focus on whether or not European companies have the innovative juice necessary to gain advantages via technology, as competition becomes more intense and ever more global.

Key speakers include:

-Russell M. Artzt, Vice Chairman and Founder, CA Technologies

-Tom Burns, EVP and President, Enterprise and Strategic Industries, Alcatel-Lucent

-Bindia Hallauer, Chief Technology Strategist & CTO, Worldwide Financial Services Sector, Microsoft Corporation

“Over the last year, we’ve seen a lot of activity in the way that financial services organizations in Europe are using technology, and real evidence showing how it can shape their business, which is why we’ve launched our first Enterprise Technology Summit in London,” said Robert Bierman, head of Bloomberg LINK. “The event will bring together the most forward-thinking and innovative specialists in this space and generate some lively debate on what role technology plays in an industry that has never been under so much speculation and scrutiny.”
