Chennai, India -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/07/2015 --Intellect Design Arena Ltd, a specialist in applying true Digital Technologies across Banking & Insurance, today announced that it has been acknowledged as a Global Pursuer for new named deals and a Global Player for combined deals in the Global Banking Platform Deals Survey 2014 by Forrester Research, Inc.

Forrester surveyed 32 vendors of globally and regionally deployed banking platforms about their 2014 deals in the April 2015 report titled 'Customer Experience In Banking Needs More Than Just Channels'. The results reveal the functional centres of gravity in this market and how financial services firms intend to deliver great customer experiences with off-the-shelf solutions.

The 2014 survey revealed differing levels of vendor success in terms of global sales, global reach, and homogeneity of product portfolios. Forrester sorted the participating vendors into the five levels of global vendor pyramid for new named deals and for combined deals. Intellect has been positioned as a "Global Pursuer" with 19 New Named deals in more than three regions of the world. Intellect has also been positioned as a "Global Player" with 32 Deals in more than three regions in the Combined Deals category.

Forrester reports that the need for digital transformation is stronger than ever before. To meet this need efficiently, financial services firms are increasingly focusing on off-the-shelf capabilities. Banks are using off-the-shelf banking platforms or parts of them for channel solutions (such as mobile, online, and omnichannel banking and portals), core banking, lending, payments, and treasury. Many banks are also combining off-the-shelf and custom-built solutions.

The Intellect design philosophy of enterprise wide digital transformation is a key differentiator in developing solutions for the transformative agendas of CXOs and CIOs, bringing the synergies of digital and transformation together. With substantial research, Intellect products embody requirements for successful digital strategies, driving holistic digital transformation in line with the company's vision of being a Simplified, Digital Organization providing Superior Customer Value.

"As banks and insurance companies embrace digital for competitive advantage, the common goal is to provide customers the same experience at every touch point. We believe that this recognition further reinforces our leadership amongst the top banking platforms in the world. We will continue to provide advanced digital experiences, supported by our customer-centric design philosophies." said Arun Jain, Chairman & Managing Director, Intellect Design Arena Limited.
