  • This is an interesting slide. Islamic banks are normally small, new and operate with limited budget and technology expertise.Customers – 15% are dedicated Islamist; they will not run away even if products are priced at premium. And 15% will never come to Islamic banks. The 70% is the target group.. Which is also the group that may go to conventional banks if they observe poor service or pricey products.. On compliance, there are extra areas where Islamic banks have to deal with, especially on Shariah etc..
  • The situation has changed now.. Things are much better, both at the banks’ side as well as the vendors.. There is hope for everyone.. Of course, this is still work in progress..

  • The Reality on Technology Implementation for Islamic Banking as observed by IBS in 2007  Decision making has been too quick without proper vendor assessment. Many banks are paying today for making the wrong choices through extended timelines for implementations  Banks have been under-budgeting for Islamic banking systems. Although they spend in the millions for conventional systems, they tend to budget less than $500,000 for Islamic banking systems. This leads to:  Tweaking of existing systems to cater to the requirement  Shoddy implementation and ill-conceived products  Lack of knowledge amongst vendors often leads to ‘tweaked’ products being delivered. Often, banks end up doing the work themselves as the system is unable to meet the short time-to-market requirement for Islamic banks  Vendor misleading the customer into believing that their Islamic banking offering is a simple solution  Varied interpretations of the Shari a across geographies and banks operating in similar markets Source: IBS Guide on Islamic Banking - 2007© 2011 Oracle Corporation – Proprietary and Confidential 15
