The solution was recognised among the top nine global banking platforms, which were evaluated on a comprehensive set of 74 criteria focusing on functional breadth, agility, and strategy.

In another assessment(4), CEB TowerGroup analysts rated the Infosys Finacle Trade Finance solution as the ‘Best-in-Class’ for bank user services and enterprise support.
Infosys Finacle continued its business momentum last quarter with 18 wins and 16 go-lives across Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. With over 450 installations globally, this flagship banking product of Infosys is today serving 451 million customers across 84 countries – this is nearly 18 percent of the world’s adult banked population.
As global financial institutions increasingly seek actionable insight to better service their customers, Finacle will leverage the latest advancements in mobility, big data and analytics to further enhance its offerings in the space. According to Ovum, retail banks’ spending on management information systems − including data collation, analytics, and reporting systems − is expected to reach US$9.3 billion by the end of 2018.(5)
