The enterprise technology and operations model at banks has taken firm root.

Technology vendors and their systems tend to be towards one end of this curve or the other, with a strong co-dependence between the two types of systems. The core systems are not nimble enough to expand their service level with a customer, while the smaller enterprise-ready solutions are not complete enough to stand on their own.
