For Episode #7 of the One Zero One podcast, Paul Slade from Version 1 met with Scott Carey, Group Editor - B2B at IDG UK to discuss the disruption of the Financial Services industry by Fintech businesses, innovation and the relevance of ‘buzzwords’ such as Machine Learning in the IT space right now.

Technology is constantly evolving, with each change bringing a need for clarity. IDG UK is responsible for influencing the most powerful tech buyers in the world — from business technologists to enthusiasts and everyone in between through titles such as Computerworld UK, CIO UK, CSO UK and Techworld. With a background in Journalism and having previously held writing and editorial roles in ComputerWorld and Techworld, Scott Carey is now the Group Editor of the IDG UK B2B editorial team.

Responsible for all content across the organisation’s four B2B titles: Computerworld UK, CIO UK, CSO UK and Techworld, Scott writes for and edits these sites day-to-day, manages a growing team of writers and supports events and commercial editorial work. 

Innovative startups have been disrupting many sectors with modern technologies, but one area that Scott has observed a particularly tight race against disruption is within the financial sector across the UK.  Fintech organisations have really disrupted banking, and the banks must keep changing to meet modern user expectations. Scott has a keen interest in observing the financial services sector navigate their way (and meet user demands) through the Digital age. Paul takes a deep dive into this topic with Scott to understand how innovation and Fintech disruptors have affected the technology strategy of the banks in the UK.
