Banking sector

The banking industry has seen far-reaching changes in the last decade or two. New niche players have entered the market and challenged established full-service banks. New distribution channels and services have increased the need for fast and flexible systems development. Meanwhile, there has been exponential growth in banking regulation.

 

Increased disclosure requirements create a need to collect and process huge amounts of data. Applying the new rules in a way that is supportive to risk management and facilitates effective capital allocation creates a key competitive advantage.

 

Omeo’s clients range from the large commercial banks to smaller niche players. We offer project management based on our extensive operational expertise and specialist knowledge of the banking sector.
