Evolving customer preferences, demand for digital and omnichannel experiences, and competition from FinTechs are impacting banks’ digital strategies and transformation initiatives. In Europe, regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and open banking have driven banking organizations’ investments in application modernization initiatives. Additionally, the rise of challenger banks is compelling banks to focus on customer experience enhancement.

One of the biggest challenges the industry continues to face is the shortage of technology skills in the market. Thus, IT service providers are investing heavily in not just banking-focused IP/solutions, but also engineering talent to respond to the evolving demand themes.

In this research, we present an assessment and detailed profiles of 26 Application and Digital Services (ADS) providers in Europe featured on the Application and Digital Services in Banking PEAK Matrix®. Each service provider profile provides a comprehensive picture of the provider’s service focus, key Intellectual Property (IP) / solutions, domain investments, and case studies.
