At first, we have to consider the macroeconomic scenario characterized by low interest rates, leading to a reduction of the institutions’ profitability and promoting investments aimed to increase the organizations’ efficiency.

The last element we have to consider is the technological one: during the years, many innovations changed the customers’ behaviors, introducing new needs that institutions have to take into account in their strategic plans. Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, also called GAFA, have introduced new ways to interact with consumers that are based on instant and easy access to different functionalities.
