"The slowdown in the economy has impacted the corporate banking sector, although not as dramatically as the retail banking sector," comments Meredith Hickman, author of the report. "We find that providers have pulled back in their discussions and development of advanced, or futuristic, features. Vendors are now more focused on delivering on-time and within budget, a challenge for many who have experienced lay-offs and internal restructuring."
