IBS Journal

Starts from £545.00

IBS Intelligence has designed a special Corporate eLibrary package that provides access to multiple users, across multiple sites simultaneously. This is to provide effective support to multiple members of a client team who may be in different locations, and in some cases working together on a single project. There is also a package to buy the full set of reports, or a sub-set of all the reports.

Product Description

For 25 years IBS Journal has been an iconic publication that provides a global perspective on banking technology. The monthly publication and the accompanying supplements cover a wide range of subjects pertinent to the financial technology industry worldwide. Each issue includes the major news and developments in the industry, detailed case studies, analysis, interviews and other feature articles, as well as the latest industry gossip.

IBS Journal features independently researched and compiled material, with no advertorial. We believe that this dedication to quality is unique among publications in the banking and financial services IT space.
