My latest IDC MarketScapes assess 2018 worldwide anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) vendors providing solutions in financial services to the worldwide banking market.

Corporate treasurers are yet to be convinced about the benefits of open banking and application program interfaces (APIs). A majority of them (55%) attending the EuroFinance international treasury management show at Palexpo in Geneva, Switzerland, 26-28 September which attracted 2100 delegates, said it 'wasn't relevant' or they didn’t know about it when asked how they viewed the EU Payment Services Directive (PSD)2. This is the regulatory driver behind the trend in Europe.

One of my key takeaways from the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) Conference 2018 that I recently attended in Liverpool, UK, on 15-16 May, where 1100 treasurers and lots of commercial banks and vendors packed the ACC venue, was the re-emergence of virtual bank accounts as a hot topic.

The Blockchain for Treasurers session at the Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) Conference 2018 that I recently attended in Liverpool, UK, explored the potential opportunities the technology might offer.

An interesting trend has emerged in the 14 years that IDC Financial Insights has been tracking the performance of the top technology organizations that support the financial services industry worldwide. The Goliaths of the technology industry, those firms whose total revenues represent their breadth of solutions and services across many vertical industries, are losing ground to those relatively smaller IT firms that focus on financial services as their main markets. The shift has been dramatic, especially over the last 5 years, and it portends a future where industry focus may be they key to financial success.
