According to research published this year, 65% of banks say in-house resources are the first or second biggest delaying influence on time to market for apps. This certainly backs up the discussion that took place this morning at Mubaloo’s mobilising financial services roundtable.
The invite-only event saw a mixture of financial services firms discuss the main challenges with mobilisation. One of the key themes focused on how line of business heads are increasingly turning to external mobile and digital experts to deliver projects.
Unsurprisingly, security was also a focus, with the group discussing how new technologies are advancing mobile security. The group came to understand that due to device features, unique to mobile, make mobile one of the safest channels to interact with financial organisations.
Across the board, it was agreed that financial services firms are benefiting from focusing on mobile.
All themes covered at the roundtable, along with a host of additional insights, are discussed in the ‘Mobilising Financial Services’ white paper.
