Maximize your Software Spend, Services & Benefits

Software is the largest area of IT expenditures for most enterprises today. Software, unique from other areas of spend, replaces other things and brings new capabilities to your organization.  Optimizing how you acquire, deploy, renew and govern software assets provides the agility needed for business transformation and transparency to control costs.

ISG’s Software Advisory practice leverages our unmatched market insights, research analytics and expertise in validating your architecture, requirements, bill of materials, utilization and compliance to help you to effectively reduce costs, manage software assets, mitigate software compliance risks and resolve software audit issues. 

ISG brings the objectivity, research and expertise across the digital ecosystem to help you rapidly realize the benefits of your software acquisitions and the digital transformations they enable.

Refresh Your Banking Platforms & Software

There are many reasons why Core Banking and associated platforms are being refreshed across the banking landscape – 
Fintechs are attracting bank clients, and banks are challenged to handle the shift to digital engagement models. We can answer your questions:

  • What major technology projects should be in my plan for this year and the next? (e.g., Dual Core Banking Platforms, GRC Platforms, Insurance Platforms, CCaaS Platforms, etc.)
  • How can I significantly improve my software risk, flexibility, savings and time-to-value for my banking platform environment?

ISG can help you solve for your banking platform challenges, including building an actionable strategy and business cases, sourcing the right software and implementation partners, transforming your operating model to align with new capabilities, and realizing the value of your software investments.
