    organizations together in the digital economy

    46% believe adopting a platform-based business

    to create value are very critical to their business

    natural traits

    Distribution Power Law

    Enables scale by allowing non-

    financial services providers in the

    network to draw on bank customer

    data in ethical and secure ways to

    generate new revenue in the long

    tail of the distribution curve

    avoiding diminishing returns

    associated with traditional value

    chain models.

    Network Effects

    Two user groups generate

    network value for each other,

    resulting in mutual benefits

    that drive demand-side

    economies of scale.

    Network Synergy

    Cross-industry, mutually-benefiting

    synergies around growth and

    competitiveness arising as the

    right participants come together,

    link their products/services and

    create a marketplace that satisfies

    a specific customer need that

    would be cost-prohibitive to do


  • How should banks

    Banks should consider operating across a

    combination of five key roles:

    Relationship player. The bank owns the

    relationship with customers, leveraging partners to

    provide solutions.

    Platform provider. The bank provides a platform

    for sellers, buyers and content providers to interact.

    Core financial services utility/manufacturer. The

    traditional role of banks in providing financial


    Innovation playmaker. The bank participates in

    digital banking ecosystems, using a full spectrum of

    approaches to provide capital and to enter new


    Digital ID enabler. The bank operates a secure

    platform, offering consumers access to digital

    trust paradox is


    84% of bankers agree trust is the cornerstone

    of the digital economy

    86% of consumers in North America trust their

    bank over all other institutions to securely

    manage their personal data

    Customers rank financial services companies

    among the least trusted by customers to

    behave in ethical ways.

    customer confidence

    relies on two major


    Ethics and Security

    A culture of ethics in banking requires

    decisive actions in key areas:

    Communicate clearly to consumers on

    customer data being collected, for what purpose,

    who can access it legally and how it will be used.

    Use data primarily to offer customers

    reciprocal benefits that are directly relevant to

    the data and service being provided.

    Be responsible to accurately collect, manage

    and access customer information, with

    accountability for the use of data.

  • Banks can combine ethics with stronger security

    strategies toward higher digital trust:

    Adopt a zero-tolerance

    approach with a cyber-

    risk appetite in moving

    toward open and

    ecosystem banking.

    Incorporate next-

    generation security

    mechanisms in

    managing data

    security risks.

    Rethink identity and

    access management,

    using more innovative


    Integrate security

    application design,

    integrated database

    security and others

    into new products.

    Identify indicators of

    risky insider activity to

    detect early signs of

    possible fraud or

    criminal activity.

    Banks realize a

    liquid workforce is a

    competitive advantage

    74% of bank executives believe that a more fluid

    workforce would improve innovation.

    55% of jobs in banks that have a digital component

    today (compared to 50% across all industries);

    bank executives expect this number to increase to

    61% in three years.

    75% of banking executives believe in three years

    the proportion of workers will shift towards more

    multi-skilled, flexible employees.

    digital transformation,

    banks must develop new,

    Forward-thinking banks will go

    further to organize their workforces

    around business outcomes and

    Automation The essential new

    co-worker in digital


    Banks have an

    opportunity to improve


    86% of bank executives agree the widespread use of

    artificial intelligence (AI) provides for a competitive

    advantage beyond cost.

    77% expect AI will be a significant change or complete

    transformation for banking over the next three years

    Banks plan to use cognitive information systems or

    increase intelligent automation:

    - Knowledge worker tasks (91%)

    - Customer interaction/experience (88%)

    - IT tasks (90%)

    - Embedded AI solutions (80%)
