How does a small bank approach its digital transformation as compared to a mid-tier or a large-tier bank?

A banking transformation approach is decided based upon the size of the bank, available capital for IT investment, the complexity of its operations and systems currently in place.

How does a small bank approach its digital transformation as compared to a mid-tier or a large-tier bank?

Large (Tier1) banks prefer to develop their own custom systems in-house, to meet their requirements. However substantial cost, resources and expertise required in building a new system, has forced many banks to acquire systems and customize them.

Medium sized banks (Tier 2,3) prefer to go for package-based solutions with some degree of customization. This strategy is appealing to small or medium sized banks which have low IT budgets and require low levels of customization.

Small-tier banks (Tier 4) prefer to go for cloud based solutions in order to pay per transaction basis.
