Fintech digital innovation is fast becoming a business driver
FinTech is the largest technology sector in Europe, its combined valuation 3 times larger than the next sector. The pace of innovation has been tremendous, matched by a consumer appetite for new ways to generate, store and transfer money.
These forces have turbocharged the - already healthy - competitive drive across the industry. Startups are well-placed to innovate quickly, however, established companies find it a lot harder, due to typical issues connected to scale and legacy.
Digital client experience is key - especially when working across borders and jurisdictions.
Innovation is tougher for firms that grow via acquisitions
Driving product innovation hard is no easy task, especially for organisations that have grown through acquisitions. Common challenges include:
Teams from acquired companies take a while to blend, let alone embark on cross-department innovation projects.
Failure to modernise legacy systems can delay innovation, as they consume resources, and saps team morale.
Acquired organisations can remain stuck in their thinking, resisting change and Agile development process.
