Everest Group, a leading research firm, has named Genpact, a global professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation, a Leader in its Banking Operations — Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2022.
With the pandemic’s ongoing disruption of the banking industry, many financial institutions are focusing on how to become future-ready, agile, and resilient to manage volume fluctuations and staff shortages. These institutions are now actively pursuing solutions embedding robotic process automation, artificial intelligence, advanced analytics, and machine learning to transform their operations. Fintechs have also emerged as a key constituent looking for transformative solutions, especially within the financial crime and compliance management and advisory fronts.
As a result, Everest Group recognizes the need for providers that offer business-process-as-a-service (BPaaS)-led transformative solutions, combined with industry expertise and an advisory-led approach. Additionally, Everest also highlights that leading digital transformation companies should augment their capabilities by actively leveraging partnership ecosystems and engaging in strategic acquisitions to help speed time-to-market for their offerings.

The report highlights Genpact’s strong focus in areas such as customer experience transformation from the acquisitions of Something Digital and Rightpoint as well as strength in financial crime risk and compliance management space backed by riskCanvas.
