The more boxes you can tick in this list, the more you are ‘in the game’. A traditional banking approach will tick only 8 to 10 boxes. A modern enterprise geared to digital banking will tick almost all of them, or at least 12. The list above is one that will define your flexibility. Your ability to react, analyse and learn. In order to assess the foundation for your digital transformation strategy please review the technical check list. GFT Group | ›


Digital Banking Technical Checklist Your digital transformation needs a solid foundation, built on four corner stones.

Digital platforms Is your backbone or backend solid, stable, efficient, online, and available 24/7? Do you have a multichannel strategy? Do you have an omnichannel strategy? Are your applications responsive? Personal finance management Do you provide customers with graphical, visual or forensics reports of their finances? Do you have an alert system for the financial events your customers experience? Can your customers set financial objectives and track them? Are you able to issue prescriptive solutions to avoid undesired situations or issue forecast recommendations to customers? Real-time decisions Do you have a big data cluster? Do you store customers’ information for processing Can you take real-time decisions depending on customer actions? Can you push ad-hoc, real-time offers, products or recommendations to customer apps or devices? Mobile payments Are your websites/apps able to handle all kinds of money transfers? Do you also provide peer-to-peer (P2P) payment options? Do you have NFC (or similar) payment solutions? Can you start a payment from a picture of a bill or from a PDF?
