Banking and securities organisations are investing in emerging digital technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain, not only to create new product offerings but also to respond to evolving customer demands.

According to Gartner”s “Hype Cycle for Digital Banking Transformation 2019”, biometric technology will impact up to 20 per cent of banking organisations in the next two to five years.

“In India, biometric technology adoption saw a boost after the introduction of Aadhaar, a unique 12-digit identification number that links citizens” bank accounts to their biometric data and mobile numbers,” added Merji.

According to the 2019 Gartner CIO Survey, technology leaders in banking place a higher priority on legacy modernisation than do technology leaders in other industries.

“One of the critical challenges that troubles Indian banking and securities CIOs is connecting legacy digital systems to modern IT setups without interrupting the flow of data,” Merji added.
