ANZ has also been named as an innovation partner to the NSW Government, a partnership which will leverage the bank’s market-leading capability and experience in data analytics, agile ways of working, human-centred design, digital and payments.
ANZ Group Executive Digital Banking, Maile Carnegie, said: “Like banks, governments are facing changing expectations from their citizens and need to respond in a way that’s intuitive, flexible and innovative. The NSW Government is progressive in its thinking and we’re confident this partnership will draw upon our experience and expertise in digital banking and transformations to help drive that vision for the future.”
The contract is for three years with options to extend.
Maile Carnegie explains how the future of banking – and government - depends on partnerships on bluenotes.
