According to 'The Challenge of Speed', recently published by Ricoh/Economist Intelligence Unit, CEOs in financial services see technology as a key issue, with 49% agreeing they have to 'adopt new technologies faster' as their number one priority ahead of attracting new customers or changing business processes.
Numerous challenges make technology one of the key issues for the sector, such as increasing regulation and legislation, the growth of big data and the need to implement more robust analytics and reporting. Digital transformation and rapidly-changing consumer habits, increased importance of cybersecurity, the cloud and automated trading have also contributed to the current technological challenge facing the Banking and Financial Services sector.
This is fuelling a global talent shortfall which has become a critical issue for the Banking and Financial Services sector.
