What You'll Do

The rise of digital technology has dramatically altered the landscape in the financial-services sector.

Technology has become an intrinsic part of the business strategy at financial services firms. Digital not only means new banking channels, it also offers a unique

opportunity for banks to drive growth and profitability. Digital technologies open up new revenue streams by enabling banks to serve customers they could not cost-effectively

serve before. Mobile banking allows banks to expand their reach to populations living in areas where it would not be profitable to build branches. Cognitive computing can let banks

offer cost- efficient personalized financial advice to customers who want special treatment but are not wealthy enough to afford high- end private banking services.

Digital helps banks to improve customer engagement by offering new services.
