IDC PlanScape: Core Banking Modernization to Meet Changing Demands
This IDC PlanScape helps organizations justify investment in core banking modernization, provides insight into different approaches to modernize core banking, and provides process-related advice for these deployments.
"Now is the time for banks to modernize core banking," says Jerry Silva, vice president, IDC Financial Insights' Worldwide Banking Digital Transformation Strategies program. "Between modern technology approaches like microservices and APIs and the use of cloud platforms ensuring scalability and resiliency for the bank's back office, banks would do well to start the journey to core system modernizations without delay."
Most banks around the world rely on aging legacy systems that cannot provide the real-time transactions or personalized services that customers demand more than ever and that they receive from both banking competitors and other industry firms. A modern core is a business enabler using the latest technology to drive better banking experiences with personalized customer engagement and faster response to market changes with new products and services, expanding revenue opportunities for the bank.
