Head of Visa Consulting & Analytics (VCA) Europe
About Claudio D.
I have led a career in large-scale technology and digitally-enabled transformation, designing, implementing and QAing innovative solutions for clients across the spectrum, particularly within Financial Services. As a senior business technologist and trusted advisor, I have been able to leverage a wide breadth of experiences across a variety of industries, geographies and markets, and distil critical thinking and analytical judgement into making the right strategic decisions for companies looking to extract value from their technology and Digital investments and initiatives. My areas of expertise range from Digital Strategy, Innovation and Business value alignment, Analytics and of course IT Strategy and Business Transformation, through to core technology aspects such as Enterprise Architecture, Integration, APIs and Microservices, IT Simplification, Automation, Multi-speed SDLC, Cloud Strategy and Service Enablement, Data Strategy and Architecture, Machine Learning & broader IT Value, Effectiveness and Innovation.
I am a senior technology and Digital strategist with delivery practitioner’s insight, and a business architect and seasoned advisor, able to link the technology value proposition into business strategy with significant experience and C-suite impact across a wide range of organisations, Digital platforms & technologies globally.
My focus for the last 18 years has been Technology and Digital Strategy for Financial Services, a field that I see as being one of the most exciting spaces in terms of the need for true business transformation through Digital, as well as growth and innovation opportunities in a fluid, rapidly-evolving ecosystem; certainly a space that requires world-class capabilities to be led from the front – and Payments is very much the battleground in which Digital meets Financial Services in a very real, experiential way for us all as consumers,
