What A Retail Bank Learned About The Value Of Persistent Teams In Digital Transformation by Peter Bendor-Samuel In digital transformation, it’s an undeniable fact that many companies end up getting nowhere close to hitting their goal. But a major US retail bank undertook a highly strategic project to build the back-end support system for a digital payments transaction platform, and it achieved outstanding results. A compelling high level of productivity. A superb product that delivers competitive differentiation. Plus, the system was delivered in agile, fast way, and the overall total cost outcome was very low.

As I previously blogged, a large retail bank wanted to implement a digital payments platform. After several attempts internally and with SIs to build the back-end system to support a...
