Celent Research Services for the Global Financial Services Industry

Celent Research Services

Celent conducts timely and independent research concentrating on information technology and strategy and their relevance to the global financial services industry with a specific focus on Banking, Securities & Investments, and Insurance.

Our research falls under three overarching themes:

 Digital

The move from the physical to the virtual world, from person-to-person interaction toward person-to-machine or machine-to-machine. Integrating and coordinating among disparate and siloed delivery channels will be critical to satisfying ever-increasing customer expectations. 
 Innovation & Emerging Technologies

Celent defines innovation as fundamental changes to products, services, or business models that break existing tradeoffs and provide value to the customer. New hardware, software and network technologies feed insurance innovation.
 Legacy & Ecosystem Transformation

Legacy technology can hinder innovation, since insurers must typically offer backward compatibility. Insurers must not only modernize, but transform, their internal systems and the ways in which they interact with a vast web of customers, counterparties and regulators.
