Starfish Digital Welcomes Daniel Eastwood as Head of Business Development, Thailand
Eastwood brings digital expertise and advisory experience to Starfish Digital
Starfish Digital the digital integration and microservices company, today announced the appointment of Daniel Eastwood as head of business development, Thailand.
Eastwood has led global enterprise customers and professional service teams through business service design, digital transformation, and cloud enablement initiatives. At Starfish Digital he will advise companies wanting to automate their financial transactions and create their own digital offerings. Especially in the areas of corporate banking, liquidity management and corporate treasury services.
"Starfish Digital's SaaS platform and financial microservices help companies with fragmented, labour-intensive cash management processes by providing a single view of banking relationships and intelligently processing data" said Eastwood. "In Thailand, I look forward to supporting the digital transformation of companies hindered today by manual procedures, lack of investment in middleware integration technologies and a plethora of heritage systems, which are expensive to maintain and customise."
Also, Eastwood will be working with the Starfish Digital team helping wholesale banks looking to migrate away from an IT infrastructure incapable of delivering their company’s vision of the future. Typically, banks spend over 60% of the IT budget on maintaining heritage systems rather than improving customer experiences. What is required is a digital integration capability and a unified API/microservices approach to integrate legacy capabilities to new digital service offerings and automation.
“Daniel is a proven leader known for his understanding of how technology can improve margins and enhance customer experiences. He brings decades of technology knowledge gained working at the world’s leading banks such as UBS and Standard Chartered in the UK and Southeast Asia. I am delighted to welcome him to the team,” commented Patrick Huang CEO and founder of Starfish Digital.
“Starfish Digital’s suite of microservices applications optimise how companies manage their finances and create their own digital products. We look forward to further expanding our team in Thailand in response to clients looking for greater operational flexibility and faster time-to-market for launching new digital products and services.” said Daniel Choi, CTO.”
