Gartner recently updated its Hype Cycle for Digital Banking Transformation, diving into technology innovations transforming the future of digital banking. These technologies highlight a range of innovations that are making waves in the finance sphere. For industry leaders, these technologies are shaping the finance industry and should be considered when formulating digital strategies and prioritizing technology investments. Key themes include:

  • Core technologies and cloud computing: Industry growth is enabled through core technologies, impacting banking across different sectors.
  • Blockchain, digital currencies, digital assets, and decentralized finance: The rise in cryptocurrencies isn't going unnoticed. With new forms of payments and transactions rising in popularity, new horizons and asset classes are growing in value.
  • Analytics and artificial intelligence (AI): The industry is becoming more automated, and the analytics process is changing with the development and incorporation of AI. 
  • Payment innovations: Organizations are turning their focus to which innovative drivers are leading the payments space.
