This study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of vendors providing know-your-customer (KYC) software solutions in the worldwide financial services market. This IDC MarketScape is an evaluation based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assesses providers relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in this market over both the short term and the long term.
