itopia IT Benchmark Study

Raise the Bar

A company’s financial success relies heavily on making efficient use of information technology. However, the optimum degree of IT support and automation depends on the situation. For this reason, you will find that straightforward cost comparisons fall short when you need to make decisions about your IT investments and operating models.

We understand the financial-service-provider value chain and that of your partners. And we have mastered the art of technology management. This means we can map IT expenditure and investment against KPIs for your business, and help you to improve.

How Our Benchmarking Experts Can Help

Annual itopia IT Benchmark Study

Peter Drucker once wrote that “What gets measured gets managed.” Since 2000, itopia has been carrying out an annual IT benchmark study on behalf of retail and private banks based in Switzerland and the principality of Liechtenstein. This has enabled the management teams at the banks to steer their investments in IT more effectively.

The results for recent years are available here:
