Industrialising Investment Banking Technology

What does an industrialised bank look like? We are embarking on a journey already undertaken by many other industries as they matured. Using the automotive industry as an example, we see:

  • Use of technology and lean processes to drive down costs
  • Reduction in end-product complexity
  • Increased regulation for a safer industry
  • Extensive technology cross-licensing and shared development costs
  • Shared manufacturing infrastructure
  • Massive standardisation and use of common capabilities

Financial services are entering this next phase of maturity and must increase the strength of their IT in preparation for the journey.
