The final seven vendors and their products were then assessed based on qualification criteria that included (1) Functional coverage of a large part of the functional map for banking, (2) swift architectural approach that supports an agile banking platform, (3) well balanced success in 2008 and 2009 wherein participating vendors must have won more than 15 banking platform deals in 2009 or at least five deals in 2008 and in 2009, (4) global delivery capability and (5) mindshare among Forrester’s client base.
