The banking industry has undergone massive changes, which has led to the customization of its operating methods. Over the past few years, the banking industry is increasingly shifting focus toward third-party software because of changed customer demands, declining profits, and need for flexible operations in terms of time and convenience. Several banks are making an effort to have modern banking systems over traditional ones. With traditional legacy systems, banks often face challenges in execution of new features and their integration. Also, any small change in one application causes problems in other parts of application; hence, banks are shifting toward third-party software to eliminate these complications, thus retaining operational flexibility. Core banking services are provided by third-party banking software vendors to banks by providing multiple channels, which is the main reason why banks are shifting to automated systems. With reduced physical branches, bank networks are increasingly dependent on internet and mobile channels for its operation. Hence, it is becoming important for banks not only to offer their customers flexibility in bank transactions but also provide the same in a secure manner through smart devices. Third-party banking software plays a key role in this process of modernization. Banks are increasingly focusing on technologies that might help in retaining customers, as the third party banking software market is witnessing intense competition.
There are various factors driving the growth of the third party banking software market. One of the driving factors is the growing need to increase operational efficiency and productivity in all industry verticals including the banking industry. In addition, the rising trend of customer-centric core banking and increasing demand for standardized activities in the banking sector are propelling the growth of the third party banking software market. Furthermore, increase in mobile banking and online banking by customers which indicates inclination toward digital platforms such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets indirectly drives the growth of the third party banking software market. Since banks are not able to provide these services to customers directly from their end, they hire vendors to provide such software services to their customers. However, information security and high costs of software are the restraining factors for the third party banking software market.
Integration of multiple banking organizations is also an upcoming challenge to the growth of the market. Lack of capable professionals to effectively and safely use this third party banking software is another concern for this industry, hampering the growth of the market, since the software contains highly confidential data.
