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.

It identified the leading group of banks for digital transformation in the sector:
1. Banco Santander
2. Bank of America
5. BNP Paribas
7. DBS Bank
8. Deutsche Bank
10. JP Morgan Chase
12. Societe Generale
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.
