The Qorus-Accenture Banking Innovation portal provides a unique worldwide database with more than 4,800 innovations from hundreds of institutions across 92 countries. By adding their innovations to the portal, organizations not only stand to win recognition for their own achievements; they will also help to inspire others in the industry to build better disruptive strategies.
