The model of hybrid working, integrating the WFH component will reverberate at the entire level of companies and business organizations in their way of running the daily operations.
There has been a big jump in the digital story for everyone and the big questions will address how fast the companies could change, not only in banking, but also other industries. People really reacted to the new context and tried to deal with to cope with the new environment.
The busines environment is healthier right now than before the pandemic period. The competition is healthy in any kind of industry and the main benefiter is the consumer. The banks learned from fintech a lot and we can see this kind of learning in their services and provided solutions and about the way they do business. The competition will become harsher and harsher we use more tech-based solutions.

Another important element that should be in focus is element is legislation and its purpose to achieve the digital transformation objectives.
