So, what is driving this demand for change? Although businesses change for many reasons, the following three are at the top of most of our client’s minds at the moment:
1. Modernise: Businesses must modernise in order to keep up the pace in a fast moving market place. Digital Transformation means different things to different people, but it is on everyone’s mind at the moment.Legacy systems are valuable and aren’t going to disappear anytime soon and the challenge is to unlock the value (and data) in legacy systems in order to enable newer, faster and more agile methods of working and ways to do business. Xceed Group operates across many industries, predominantly in the Finance Industry, and it’s not just the Big Banks that are thinking about Digital Transformation, even relatively new Challenger Banks are investing in IT change in order to stay current.
2. Differentiate: Being able to differentiate is key to remaining competitive. Speed to market for new Financial Services products and services is increasing with innovative FinTech and now InsurTech solutions available widely.
Our clients are constantly looking for new ways to differentiate, with an ever growing demand for services that allow them to take new products or services to market quickly to enhance customer experience and make operational efficiencies.
3. Compliance: Whether it is compliance for new internal processes (improving operational risk control, separating banking platforms and modernising IT) or compliance with external legislations (GDPR is a significant challenge to our clients at the moment), businesses are having to improve and adapt their systems, applications and processes in order to comply with these changes.
How can Xceed Group help tackle these challenges?
