SmartStream Technologies, the financial Transaction Lifecycle Management specialist, today announced that it is the primary sponsor for two leading conferences that will bring together some of the most important senior decisions makers from across Asia and the Middle East.

OPEX-Risk 2010, taking place in Singapore on the 28th and 29th of September, brings together regional regulators and executives from Asian and international banks. They will be discussing regional policies, market challenges and strategies to achieving operational excellence and build proper risk management frameworks amidst change and growth. SmartStream will be speaking at the conference as well as demonstrating the full range of TLM solutions to delegates in the exhibition space.

OPEX 2010, now in its sixth year, will be taking place in Dubai on October 11th and 12th, drawing the regions leading COO and CIOs to highlight examples of operational excellence across all banking processes. The event will cover themes including transaction processing automation, operational efficiency to drive down risk and cost, shared services and business process outsourcing.

Richard Cummings, Executive Vice President at SmartStream Technologies, commented: “From our experience delivering solutions to many of the leading firms across Asia it is clear there is a huge appetite for proven industry solutions that can create lower cost, lower risk operations. The OPEX-Risk Asia event reflects those drivers and presents a great opportunity to meet key decision makers from across the region to discuss their issues and how we can overcome them through our range of solutions. I look forward to our participation in the event and demonstrating to delegates how TLM can deliver significant operational benefits to their organisations.”

Christian Schiebl, Executive Vice President at SmartStream Technologies, added: “We’re delighted to be sponsoring a leading industry conference in Dubai, which offers an excellent forum for ongoing discussion around critical industry topics. OPEX Middle East enables an open dialogue with the operations community working within one of the most dynamic and strategically important financial services markets. During our session we will be discussing in practical terms how firms in the region can achieve more efficient operations by highlighting some of the significant success we have had with firms such as Finance House in Abu Dhabi.”
