Banks in need of development through simplifying technology

A recent research conducted by Infosys and European Financial Management Association (EFMA) on innovation in banking highlighted that:

  • Only 35% of banks have a real-time single view of customer products and transactions
  • Merely 21% of banks provide some form of product personalization to their customers
  • Banks take nearly six months to bring out new offers to market, with large banks taking double the time

The common reason for this struggle is the complexity in banking operations and technology. Today, complexity has emerged as one of the biggest impediments to respond effectively to market demands.

To accelerate growth and profitability, simplifying banking is the need of the hour. Download the report here
