Retail Banking

Our research is aimed at business and technology leaders at retail banks and their solution providers to help navigate digital transformation journeys. Our insights help clients benchmark themselves through bank surveys and case studies highlighting best practices; get up to speed quickly on key technologies, such as AI, APIs, 5G, digital identity, and cloud, through primer and trends reports; and make technology investment decisions based on our deep understanding of the vendor landscape.

We have deep expertise in key areas of banking being reshaped by technology: from customer onboarding and servicing to cloud-and API-led transformation of banking platforms, and from innovations in digital payments to lending transformation.
