Intelligent Engagement in Commercial Banking

Digital disruption and transformation means that banks today face economic, competitive and regulatory challenges that are very different from what they have faced in the past. The pace of change is accelerating, customer expectations and demands are increasing and competitive threats are coming from new and different directions. Norm DeLuca, Managing Director of Banking Solutions explains how to put the customer focus at the center of your bank’s digital transformation.

2020 is unlike any year before it.

New innovations and technologies are everywhere and quickly become an integral part of how we work and live. Despite the uncertainty brought on by the coronavirus, it is certain that this global event will only continue to accelerate those innovations as banks and businesses find even more digitized ways to do business.
