The Banking and Financial Services (BFS) firms are grappling with industry headwinds related to evolving customer expectations, rising regulations and compliance needs, emerging threat of challenger banks and FinTechs, and increasing margin pressures. This has exacerbated the need for them to move away from the legacy systems and transform into an agile organization with faster time-to-market. In a bid to drive this innovation at speed and scale, as well as focus on the cost reduction agenda at the same time, the BFS firms are actively adopting a hybrid IT strategy and are investing in next-generation infrastructure themes such as cloud enablement and digital workplace services.

To support these BFS firms on their modernization journey, service providers are looking to formulate a BFS-specific go-to-market strategy by building industry-focused wrappers around their horizontal IT infrastructure offerings that can help address unique needs of these BFS customers.
