Partnership between FGV and Itaú seeks innovative solutions for the banking segment’s problems

FGV Executive Education SP and Itaú Unibanco held the 2nd HackaOPs from November 30 to December 13 – a hackathon event for the bank’s employees. During the event, participants were divided into cross-functional teams of seven people each to solve cases in the Operations area. In the end, the teams came up with MVP solutions to target and implement in the departments. Through the initiative, Itaú Unibanco gained cost efficiencies, risk mitigation, lower process time, and training regarding the use of technology and innovation.

The initiative was supported by partners aligned to the bank’s innovative vision, as well as the transformation objectives based on technology and integration of different employee profiles. FGV Executive Education SP supported the event by granting seven full scholarships for short- and medium-term courses to participants who stood out at the hackathon.

This edition of the HackaOPs also included the participation of Itaú Unibanco’s Data Engineering department.
