Then, Thiago Zaninotti, CTO of Celcoin, presented the history and innovation introduced by Open Finance in the world, and the challenges of its implementation by a regulated Payment Institution in the Brazilian Financial System.
All presentations were followed by “Roundtables” between Avalia experts and guests, facilitating discussions and the exchange of information and experiences on technology management and the challenges faced by technology leaders daily, which enriched, even more, the knowledge shared during the event.
The Avalia CTO Conference was organized in a petit committee format, just for technology leaders, enabling high-level discussions and great synergy between the group that was consolidated during the breaks and networking moments. Here are some testimonials from guests and hosts:
"The CTO Conference was a great event, and what I loved the most was the active participation of the audience. Lots of discussions about the business impact of technology, how to maximize it and how to make it visible. This is something that is part of a good developer experience: knowing why you work and seeing evidence of your impact is a key motivation factor". Olivier Liechti, Cofounder e CTO da Avalia Systems.
“The guests brightened the event with discussions and insights that made it very worthwhile. I look forward to the next one”. Anderson Soffa, Diretor de TI da Avalia Systems.
“It is always a challenge to translate the world of technology and its demands to the top management of organizations, but this is also one of Avalia's differentiators. We always seek to transfer knowledge, often helping the CTO to recognize the positive and negative risks surrounding important technological decisions and demonstrate this to management/board. But we also learned a lot in this process and we bet that bringing our clients' CTOs together could be an opportunity to share experiences and collective learning. The result was amazing and exceeded my expectations!” John Forman, Diretor de Negócios da Avalia Systems.
