Does IT spending really boost bank performance? It is widely accepted that technological developments have had a major impact on reshaping both front- and back-office operations, but there still remains some doubt as to whether the massive spending on IT by banks has improved performance or productivity in this sector. Elena Beccalli provides a useful insight into the effects of IT investments on European bank performance, drawing on new empirical evidence that academics, bankers, and IT consultants alike will find to be a fascinating contribution to this ongoing strategic debate.
ELENA BECCALLI is Visiting Fellow in Accounting, London School of Economics, UK, and Associate Professor in Banking and Finance, Università degli Studi di Macerata, Italy.
