To keep pace with customers’ expectations and achieve profitable growth, banks need to accelerate their modernization plans. We believe that these scores corroborate Finacle’s position as the best platform to support the transformation goals of banks across all segments.

Don Free, Research VP, Gartner, Inc.:
“Few undertakings are as critical to a bank's success — or to a bank CIO's career — as a core banking renewal project. Bank CIOs face intense pressure to get core banking renewal done right, and get it done right the first time. To assist with this task, Gartner has developed this research document, which provides the means to matrix a bank's business and IT context with the critical capabilities of core banking systems.”
