61% of banks in Europe are looking to replace their existing card systems
Card systems migration is a hot topic for European banks, and is at or near the top of their agendas
More than half (52%) of the card systems currently in use are between 10, 20 years old or older
Such systems cannot now be adapted to the needs of a modern digital economy, such as Banking-as-a-Service or transactions via digital marketplaces. This is a key factor driving the current interest in migration.
Vast majority (96%) of banks are considering hosting future card systems in the cloud
While fewer than one-third are actually engaged in that process. This underlines the importance of Software as a Service (SaaS) as a migration strategy given its flexibility and adaptability to future change – such as when a bank decides to move to cloud hosting for its card systems.
You are not alone
Given the complexity of card migration projects, banks should be working with experienced partners who understand the numerous road-blocks and pitfalls that can impede successful migration strategies – and who know how to overcome these obstacles.
