Why Read This Report

To develop and deliver digital innovations, eBusiness and channel strategy executives at financial firms need ideas, data, technology, software development skills, design experience, and change management support. Often, they can't source these components internally in a timely and cost-effective manner. Partners like innovation agencies, systems integrators, adjacent firms, startups, and even competitors can help you add capabilities quickly. However, working as part of an ecosystem requires a certain loosening of control and a more flexible approach to project management. This report helps eBusiness executives map their potential digital innovation partners, deal with ecosystem challenges, and make the best of these relationships.
