In the report on Corporate Banking, Forrester notes that “Leading corporate banks outpace their retail banking peers in using emerging technologies and embed their products and services in the daily lives of their corporate clients, yet very few corporate banks think that they have the right applications and architecture in place to best serve their customers — and their employees.

Finacle has been positioned as a Leader in the report by Forrester, following an evaluation of the 9 most significant Corporate banking solutions on 37 criteria across current offering, strategy and market presence. The Forrester report states that Finacle’s corporate Digital Banking Processing Platform (DBPP) differentiates with state-of-the-art architecture. Following are findings from Forrester’s evaluation of Finacle Corporate Banking solution –

  • Finacle had the highest scores among all vendors in the “Current offering” and “Strategy” categories

Referring to EdgeVerve’s Finacle Corporate Banking solution suite, Jost Hoppermann, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester writes in the report, “EdgeVerve’s corporate DBPP differentiates with state-of-the-art architecture. The vendor’s cloud strategy goes beyond cloud-based delivery models and also considers banking application ecosystems and platform-as-a-service plans, for example. Further strong points of the DBPP are its active ecosystem of system integrators and its support of APIs…EdgeVerve is a good option for corporate banks that want to mix and match select Finacle capabilities within a digital transformation project and those seeking a technologically advanced and comprehensive DBPP that has strong technology strategy and shows a strong focus on the cloud.”

Sanat Rao, Chief Business Officer and Global Head, Infosys Finacle said, “As banks work towards reviving their business amidst the multifaceted disruption caused by the pandemic, it is clear that to succeed and prevail in the new normal, banks need to transform themselves into truly digital organizations.
