In banking, the pressure to perform is intensified by new competition that is impacting every traditional line of business, using targeted solutions to attack revenues in payments, lending, investments and small business banking.Research by the MIT Sloan School of Management’s Center for Information Systems Research in both 2015 and 2017 examined the capabilities needed for becoming a top performer in the digital economy.
