Infosys Finacle, part of EdgeVerve Systems, a product subsidiary of Infosys, today announced that it has been named a leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in ‘The Forrester Wave™: Customer-Centric Global Banking Platforms, Q3 2016’ report. Finacle was recognized as a leader among nine top banking platforms, which were evaluated on a comprehensive set of 40 criteria focusing on strategy, current offering and market presence.
Assessing the market, Forrester mentions in the report that,“Many banks’ existing banking platforms still leverage overly mature and in some cases ancient technologies that are neither up to all of these business requirements nor provide a great basis for innovation. Thus, the vast majority of banks are already working on transforming their application landscape or planning to start doing so any time now.”
• Infosys Finacle received the highest score among all vendors for Current Offering;
• With a score of 4.35 (out of 5), Infosys Finacle is the only vendor who scored above 4 in the category of Current Offering;
• Infosys Finacle received the highest score possible on the criteria of ‘Channels and Touchpoints’, ‘Customer focused product configurator’ and ‘Market Approach’.
Referring to Finacle, Jost Hoppermann, VP and Principal Analyst, Forrester, says in the report,“EdgeVerve’s Infosys Finacle banking platform excels at current offering. Today, Infosys Finacle’s traditionally strong architectural focus shows key ingredients such as service-oriented architecture (SOA), components, SOAP and RESTful APIs, and API management. Infosys Finacle’s product configuration and bundling capabilities are particularly sophisticated. A reference client explained that the solution allowed his firm to significantly reduce time-to-market for new banking products. One powerful differentiator: Finacle’s preventive maintenance services, which are unique in this market today.”
