Abstract [sv]

Bankindustrin är ett typiskt exempel på en industri som har tjänat otroligt mycket på information- och kommunikationsteknologiapplikationer. Dessa applikationer tar formen av Internet-baserad banktjänst, som inkluderar transaktioner av värdepapper, kontouppgifter, presentation av räkningar och betalningar samt transfereringar mellan konton och individer.

Mobila banktjänster är den naturliga förlängningen av dessa typer av tjänster. Med utvecklingen av digitala trådlösa teknologier, som mobiltelefonen, är mobil Internettillgänglighet nu förverkligad.

Denna uppsats undersöker den förändrande miljön i finansindustrin som uppkommit till följd av informationteknologier, och vidare de strategiska affärsmässiga överväganden som måste göras inom detta område.

En kvalitativ fallstudie ansågs vara den mest givande metoden att använda i vår forskning. Genom att undersöka marknade, genom att skicka ut en väl strukturerad enkät till tre av de största svenska bankerna (Nordea, SEB och Handelsbanken), med relevanta intervjufrågor angående deras involvering i mobila banktjänster, kunde deras potential avgöras. Intervjuerna utfördes sedan via telefon.

Vi drar slutsatsen att för att bli konkurrenskraftig i dagens värld av avancerade teknologier, är det avgörande att finansiella instutitioner positionerar sig genom att använda sig av sådana applikationer. Banker har de nödvändiga kapitaltillgångarna som krävs för att göra betydande investeringar i teknologisk infrastruktur. Om de inte hade anpassat sig till teknologier som bankomater, kreditkort, telefoner och Internet, skulle de lätt ha kunnat exkluderas från marknaden. Det är troligt att mobila banktjänster kommer att ha samma inverkan.

Abstract [en]

The banking industry is a typical example of an industry that has benefited tremendously from applications of information and communication technologies. These applications take their form in Internet-based banking, including transactions for equities trading, account enquiry, bill presentment and payments as well as transfers between accounts and people.

Mobile banking is the natural extension of these kinds of services. With the development of digital wireless technologies, such as the mobile phone, mobile Internet access is now enabled.

This thesis examines the changing landscape of the financial industry due to information technologies and the strategic considerations of mobile banking from a business perspective.

For us a single case study with a qualitative approach has been seen as the most rewarding method to apply in our research. By investigating the market, through sending out a well-structured survey to three of the major Swedish banks (Nordea, SEB and Handelsbanken), with relevant interview questions on their involvement in m-banking, their potential could be distinguished. The interviews were then conducted over the phone.

We conclude that in order to achieve a competitive edge in today’s world of advanced technologies, it is crucial that financial institutions position themselves in deploying these applications. Banks have the necessary capital assets in order to make significant invest-ments in technology infrastructure. Without having adapted themselves to technologies such as ATMs, credit cards, phones and the Internet, they would easily have been excluded from the market. It is likely that mobile banking will have the same impact.
