The banking industry is being disrupted. Born out of the increasing pressures from regulations and competitors, banks are opening up and have to keep leveraging new technologies to attract new customers and create new revenue streams in the same way as today’s successful digital giants. However, the way in which they do so differs greatly. Some banks opt to be a utility and focus on basic but low-cost services, while others opt to be a digital bank and try to drive customer intimacy. These digital banks have the backing of an integrated and innovative technology strategy, enabled by amongst others digital intelligence, integrated experience design, post-login customer experience, digital relationship management, analytics, ‘open banking’, and socially engaged banking. In addition, true digital banks successfully collaborate with FinTech’s and other ecosystems.
Your research will focus on exploring the way in which Dutch banks are leveraging Digital. By using an outside-in perspective (or: the customer lens) you will add to and enhance earlier Accenture studies. Together, we will develop a research question that suits you, your university and us. The goal is to create a Digital Banking Index for the Netherlands – An index revealing how the different players in the Dutch banking industry are embracing Digital.
