Top Trends in Banking 2012
Every year Celent gathers its analysts from across the globe to discuss the trends in banking for Asia, North America, and Europe. Banking has become a fundamentally more difficult practice in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis. Banks in North America and Western Europe remain under pressure, while banks in Asia, Australia, and Canada are beginning to do much better.
In a new report, Top Trends in Banking 2012, Celent synthesizes key trends in each geography, obtained through analysis with bankers and vendors, clients and non-clients, and regulators and central bankers.
Global financial pressure has forced banks to put emphasis on digital channels, outsourcing, and analytics. Mobile banking and Internet banking have taken off for both the retail and commercial sides, more advanced delivery models have been driving banks toward considering outsourcing, and a desire to gain a greater wallet share of existing customers has been pushing the development of data analytics.
