Infotech Lead Asia: Polaris Financial Technology has recently launched its 8012 FT Design Center for financial technology in Chennai.

8012 FT Design Center is spread over 30,000 sq. ft and is located in the 22 acre Polaris campus on the IT Highway in Chennai.

Arun Jain, CEO and chief architect, Polaris Financial Technology, said: “The role of the CIO in the Bank is the most challenging and complex in today’s world as it is this role that straddles the world views and perspectives of Business, Operations and the Technology function in Banks and Financial Institutions.”

The center is equipped with product offerings, solutions, proprietary frameworks and methodologies to craft solutions.


The entire physical space is designed to stimulate the collective genius of diverse teams, expand their thinking and explore possibilities. The center launched five major technologies that can enable banks to deliver superior customer experience and unprecedented operational productivity.

Michael Harte, CIO, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, who inaugurated the center, said: “Design thinking is an opportunity to re-frame a problem, redefine constraints and open the field to a more innovative answer. Design Thinking is probably the greatest game changer, given the complexities and conflicts that we deal with in the banking world.”
