Now we are all back in the office, it is timely to reflect on last week at Sibos, momentous by any measure. The Closing Plenary certainly caught the mood, but interwoven throughout that session was a theme which we all need to take away from Vienna.
Lazaro said in his introduction that "we meet here . . . to collaborate, to collaborate, and to collaborate."
Don Tapscott, the next speaker, is the author of "Wikinomics - how mass collaboration changes everything", and he developed that theme extensively in his presentation.
And the final quote from the Closing Plenary reads " Regulation is necessary but insufficient. The industry needs to come together". For SEPA's sake, let's take that to heart and act on it. Over to you, SWIFT? See you all in Hong Kong.
