Model Bank 2019 Winners Revealed!
On April 12, we hosted our 13th Annual Innovation & Insight Day in New York. At the event, we celebrated 23 banks and initiatives that went beyond the theoretical to the practical, showing huge business benefits, tremendous innovation, and great technical achievement.
We have taken the rare step of publishing a free synopsis of the Model Bank Awards program titled Innovation in Banking and Payments 2019; and made this available to all registered users on Celent.com. You can download it here. Additionally, Zil Bareisis will be hosting a webinar based on this report as well as his insights on innovation in banking on May 9. This webinar is open to all, you can learn more about the event here.
Trending Conference Themes
My colleagues and I have also been to several conferences hosted by service providers. The two big themes that surfaced are culminations of trends that have been gathering momentum for quite some time: cloud and componentization. While these two go hand in hand, the progress that technology companies are making, together with the acceptance of the new technology by banks, tells me that something’s indeed different this time.
In fact, we’ll shortly be launching a new survey on banks’ adoption of cloud technologies. If you’re interested in participating, please drop me a note and we’ll put you on the list. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete, and you’ll receive a copy of the report analyzing the results as thanks for your participation.
Conference season isn’t over; perhaps we will see you at FinovateSpring, Digital Banking or Money20/20 Europe. For a full list of all the events our analysts are attending go here.
All my best,
Head of Retail Banking
