Appearing in the June issue, 2009’s Ten Tech Companies to Watch are Bank Technology News’ picks of the technology companies that are delivering on a vision of the future of the financial services industry. That’s particularly vital in a year when anyone who’s got a pulse can see that the way banks do business is being radically transformed—including how risk is assessed, how technology investments will be made, which products will be sold and how, and who ranks as the most serious competition.

The Ten Tech Companies to Watch are often young, fast-moving ventures with an exciting but narrow product or service that has the potential to change the landscape; also recognized are long-standing firms  who maintained their innovative vision and are leading the market with their heft.

Companies may nominate their own products, additional nominations will be drafted by the BTN editorial team.
