Rogers is the local leader at Mambu


SaaS banking systems provider Mambu has appointed Kristofer Rogers as its first ANZ managing director.

"Kristofer's appointment is a major coup for Mambu and we believe he will be instrumental in solidifying Mambu's presence in Australia and New Zealand," said Mambu APAC managing director Myles Bertrand.

"The ANZ region is really heating up when it comes to digital banking, so having Kristofer on the ground is going to be critical for us."

Rogers joined Mambu from Split Payments where he served as CEO after a short stint as COO.

He previously worked in the fundraising sector, as national digital program director at Cancer Council, CEO of SimplyGiving, and general manager of GoFundraise.

Earlier in his career Rogers worked in the exhibition and publishing industries.

He is also a board member at The Max Foundation, an advisory committee member of Be Someone for Someone, and a director of advisory firm Eden Consultancy.

Rogers holds an honours degree in commercial music from the University of Westminster (UK).

"Australian banks have been through a lot of scrutiny, which has led to very ambitious transformation strategies – also driven by increased competition from emerging fintechs and the launch of open banking," he said.

"With APRA driving cloud adoption as a priority, now is the time for all financial institutions and emerging players to explore innovative solutions, and Mambu is at the core of this new ecosystem. I'm looking forward to the challenge of scaling Mambu's ANZ operations."

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
