Consult Hyperion, 16/03/2012
Martha Bennett from Freeform Dynamics and Kieran Hines from Datamonitor came along to Intellect to give their views on a couple of banking-related technology trends for 2012, so I grabbed then afterwards for a chat..

Also an active industry analyst, Martha covers IT strategy and investment, with a particular focus on IT/business alignment, IT governance, business case development, and software/solution selection.
