These and many more fascinating and commercially useful statistics are drawn from the 2008 edition of the IBS Who, What, Where Guide to Back Office Systems & Suppliers – the BOSS Guide. This is the only independent guide to the international back office systems industry – and it is now available online as well as in print.
Details of over 5000 installations worldwide are included in the 2008 BOSS Guide. And the online version now boasts a powerful search facility designed to reveal the trends across this complex and highly competitive market.
Says Martin Whybrow, Editor-in-Chief of IBS Publishing, and creator of the BOSS Guide: ‘Apart from being able to see which banks have bought what and where, and having access to a wealth of information about each supplier, things really start to get interesting when you run the analysis across regions and installations’.
BOSS Guide analysis is not restricted to established areas of the market. Searches from the newer regional markets reveal a wealth of facts and figures, too. For example, 22 back office system suppliers are listed as having installations in China, but only 64 financial institutions out of a potential market of 810 have selected a back office system from an international vendor.
The most up to date sales trends across the market will shortly be uncovered as IBS reveals details from its much-anticipated 2007 Sales League Table for back office systems.
‘This is the time of year when suppliers of back office systems are eagerly awaiting the unveiling of the annual IBS Sales League Table,' says Whybrow. 'More than ever, this year’s rankings make fascinating reading for followers of this market and for banks looking to select systems. All will be revealed at the IBS Back Office Systems event on 28th February at the BritOval in London when we unveil this years Table and it will bring some major surprises.’
