The article provides the author's view on the issue regarding technology innovation among banks. It mentions the BAI's anemic Retail Delivery which reveals banks are spending or investing less in new retail banking technology, leaving the development of the industry to be dominated by small technology vendors and other non-bank firms. The author questions if banks that are too big to fail are also too big to innovate.
