Leading Banks Positioned in Juniper’s Digital Transformation Readiness Index 2018

2017 saw banks worldwide engaging in both technology investments and new tech offerings, although the extent of these activities varied considerably. Juniper’s Digital Transformation in Banking Readiness Index, analysed leading tier-1 banks to evaluate their digital transformation readiness scores and highlight their respective positioning within the digital innovation roadmap.

It identified the leading group of banks for digital transformation in the sector:

1. Banco Santander

2. Bank of America

3. Barclays


5. BNP Paribas

6. Citi

7. DBS Bank

8. Deutsche Bank


10. JP Morgan Chase

11. RBS

12. Societe Generale

13. UniCredit

14. Wells Fargo

These banks once again scored highly, offering a wide range of digital portfolios and investing in the rapid development of technology and customer enablement.

Research author Nitin Bhas noted: "They were found to be in the mature phase of digital transformation, approaching the final stages of objectives as defined in their current roadmap. These players also lead in customer training and employee development programmes, with regards to digital technology".

As these banks continue towards digital transformation, technology offerings are also becoming increasingly advanced. For example, chatbot offerings deliver a greater differentiation from a normal app experience, particularly where customer service is concerned. Juniper estimates customer service cost savings achieved through the deployment of conversational chatbot platforms will reach $4.5 billion by 2022.
