I have said several times that the bank tech industry is experiencing a lull. There's nothing brand new to buy. And most vendors are noticing the lull in their revenue figures.So to give my blog readers a touch of reality, I am listing the activities that my clients are working on these days. I believe you cant trust these answers because I know the people (109 bankers) who answered my survey. They tell things because they are true, unlike most survey participants who answer in order to be classified as an innovator. Please note, the survey consisted of 30 questions in response to the question - "What do you think of your technology?" I eliminated duplicate answers in order to reflect just the identity of what is going on in terms of implementation activity.
