The author looks at the problems arising from the inefficient results of banking innovations in the U.S., particularly on the corporate cash management side. He stresses that corporate software applications should cater to the needs of the bank's largest clients that maintain very complex entitlements and approval cash workflows, as well as comprehensive transaction validation rules. He adds that software applications should be easy to learn and are self-administering.
