Leading financial services consultancy and software provider Altus releases today an exclusive new platforms whitepaper.

‘Likening Platforms to the automotive industry, we analyse what is a massively complex and commercially active market and explain how existing and newly developed technologies can be harnessed to ensure the future viability of the brands we know and love’.

Altus Consultant Jack Berrisford, who co-authored the whitepaper, commented: “Changing regulatory frameworks, a shift in consumer sentiment and an unexpected requirement for firms to rapidly digitise operations, have combined to create a massive opportunity for change in the platform market. Straight-through-processing, seamless integrations and modular technology solutions, once the nice to haves, are quickly becoming the expected norm.   

“There are several propositions challenging the status quo and we think they are primed to offer the ‘fully electric’ platforms of the future. But with current corporate activity continuing to strengthen, rather than threaten, the existing hybrid-style model, the pace of change may be much slower than it could be.”  

The Altus whitepaper, Platforms: who’s leading the charge?, provides exclusive in-depth analysis of a market in a state of upheaval and transition. It can be downloaded free on the company’s website.
