Leading banking technology firms in 2024
We run through the leading technology platforms serving financial institutions and banks today, and look at what has taken them to the top

Today, banks and financial institutions are undergoing major transformational changes. 

A recent survey by Deloitte reveals four key trends dominating banking evolution today, including: 

. Core revival: The modernisation of legacy enterprise systems, and partly migrating them to the cloud. 

. MLOps - industrialised AI: ML analytics are radically transforming data analytics with near real-time data processing. 

. Machine data revolution: Taking data out of its siloes thanks to cloud, AI and ML technologies to make it easily available across all banking divisions. 

. Zero Trust: Scaling cybersecurity capabilities to counter the threat of increasingly technologically enabled fraudsters. 

Here, we run through a few of the leading companies delivering fintech solutions to banks today – Finastra, IBM and Sopra Banking Software.
