Accordingly, banks of all sizes are have boosted their investments in IT. Whether it involves efforts to optimize multiple delivery channels (especially the white-hot and still-evolving mobile channel) and improve customer experience, a commitment to finally modernize legacy core systems, or expanding the use of analytics and reporting tools to respond to the new compliance requirements that come with the Dodd-Frank legislation and other new regulations – more than ever, technology provides the essential foundation to carrying out banks' strategic priorities.
