by Stessa Cohen  |  June 2, 2015  |  3 Comments

Sure, it’s easy to find those cool fintech vendors. Gartner publishes a lot of Cool Vendor Reports. And, you should definitely read them. But, the proof is in the execution. How does a financial services organization – a bank, insurance company – use digital technologies in innovative ways to deliver products and services to their customers, to generate new revenue for the organization?

The Gartner Financial Services Industries group is looking for those financial services organizations who are innovating, creating innovative digital products and services, transforming customer service or legacy systems, growing the business with digital technology.

Award will be given in the following five categories:

  • Most Innovative New Digital Product
  • Most Innovative Digital Customer Service Enhancement
  • Most Innovative Technology Legacy Transformation Initiative
  • Most Innovative Application of Digital Technology to Grow the Business
  • Most Promising Digital Business Transformation Initiative

Finalists will present their innovations at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015 in OrlandoGold Coast, Australia and Barcelona.

Thoughts on Gartner is Looking for Cool Financial Services

  1. Adam says:

    Can vendors also apply for this award?

    • Stessa Cohen says:

      thanks for your question. The answer is no. Vendors may point their financial services customers who meet the criteria to the Award submission, but vendors cannot submit customers. Thanks!

    I do believe all the ideas you have offered to your post.

    They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for starters.

    May just you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
