  • Evolution of product development: Earlier, it was more about developing the product, testing it and making it resilient. Now, emphasis has moved to security and anti-money laundering and fraud. Those aspects have taken center stage.
  • Acceptance of cloud: Since COVID-19 hit, there’s been an accelerated move to the cloud.
  • Distributed work force: Large banks thought they needed to have all their teams co-located. Their applications resembled this thinking. That’s all changing as COVID-19 attacked on-prem setups.
