Infosys is a Leader in International Retail Core Banking: Gartner, Inc.
Bangalore, London, New York — October 10, 2013: Infosys has been positioned as a Leader in Gartner’s International Retail Core Banking* report for the seventh time in a row for its Finacle™ core banking solution. The solution was recognized from among 20 global vendors, who were evaluated on two key parameters: ability to execute and completeness of vision. On both the parameters, Finacle™ was positioned furthest within the Leaders Quadrant.
As mentioned in the report — “Gartner has evaluated the competitive landscape of core banking vendors that service the future of the international retail banking market. This evaluation uncovers the leading strategies of these vendors and products, reveals their underlying product/service capabilities, and affirms their relevance to the changing conditions of the banking industry. This Magic Quadrant can assist CIOs by focusing on what matters most — the relevance of vendor and product attributes to the alignment of critical business strategies and technology trends.”
The report also states that, “Vendors in Leaders Quadrant tend to possess high-order market understanding — they make it their business to monitor market trends, funneling progressive innovation into their product road maps. About half of this group either possess software development quality certifications (such as CMMI) or are pursuing them. With few exceptions, the Leaders are progressively "thinking small" or targeting component-based architecture as a gateway to providing increased accessibility to the granular functionality that banks need to drive the basis for differentiation.”
Haragopal M, Global Head - Finacle, Infosys:
