  • 75% face difficulties getting access to timely data, and close to two-thirds feel that existing systems do not support regulatory change.
  • 55% are focusing on increasing wallet share within the existing client base, with only 20% trying to achieve growth through new customer acquisition.
  • 79% said that the complexity of IT, combined with insufficient expertise within the business, was a major barrier to core system replacement.”
