Top 50 Global Banks Will have Launched a Banking App Store for Customers

 25 Per Cent of the Top 50 Global Banks Will have Launched a Banking App Store for Customers before 2016

In a report by Gartner, the explosive growth of apps is causing significant challenges for the banking industry

According to the report. Banking CIOs and CMOs face two key challenges. The first is that the visibility of customer banking apps in public stores is decreasing due to the total number of apps available; the second is that visibility of apps on bank websites is decreasing as the number of apps a bank deploys increases. This second issue is exacerbated by the fact that most bank web sites do not make it easy for customers to find their apps. This seems strange. One should ask why? It seems that the Apps are often listed by LOB (vertical markets), making it difficult for a customer to see all the apps offered by the bank, and even if they are listed in one place, the descriptions are often high-level and vague.
