The report singles out the fact that Sopra Banking’s corporate strategy is “very strong” and its application architecture achieved the highest score in the evaluation of any identified supplier.

Their independent research provides buyers with a way to objectively understand "where vendors stand in relation to each other to help application development and delivery professionals in financial services firms select the right partner for their off-the-shelf global banking platform, including their core banking and multichannel solution."

Selection for study was based on solution coverage, architecture, global delivery capacity, past successes and mind share among Forrester clients. The final report notes that Sopra Banking “received the highest score in the application architecture category and showed no real weaknesses.” Furthermore, the the market watcher has stated that “Sopra Banking Software’s product strategy is strong, and its corporate strategy is very strong — both without any weak points.”
