The past week saw two significant announcements in the world of WFO. Historically, use of WFO has been the domain of large organizations. In financial services for example, Celent estimates that 80% of top tier banks use WFO (those with assets of US$50b or more) while less than 500 US FIs employ WFO (about 3%). […]

It’s that time again where the payments industry decamps for a week of meetings and parties under the banner of Sibos. This year it’s the turn of Toronto. For those of you have not been, it’s like no other conference I’ve been to in the payments industry. Whilst Cartes is larger in terms of visitor […]

You will have to read my new report to find out the full answer. Although PFM solutions have been in existence for several years, adoption is pitiful. To give you an idea, only 3.8% of users across large banks and software vendors have been active in the last 30 days. It’s a horrific statistic, and […]
