Between January and March 2019, 405 global retail banking executives were surveyed by The Economist Intelligence Unit on behalf of Temenos. They were asked about the changes taking place in their industry to 2020 and 2025. We’ve compiled their answers, detailing organizational responses and how their long-term strategy will be impacted.
Key Points From This Year’s Survey:

- Three in five respondents expect banks deploying more computing power in the public cloud by 2025 than they currently deploy in all the private cloud data centers
- Banks are realizing the opportunities of open banking and are now pursuing more proactive strategies such as becoming aggregators of their own as well as financial and non-financial products and in some cases seeking to build digital ecosystems.
- Banks are still looking to work with fintechs with 56% of respondents saying that fintech bank collaboration in sandboxes will become mainstream by 2025
