Recognized for leveraging technology to drive innovation and digital banking capabilities
“Technology and innovation have always been cornerstones of the Capital
One business culture. We are intently focused on the customer experience
across all of Capital One’s lines of business and whether it is a
product offering, service or platform, we recognize the need to
continually adapt and innovate to enrich the quality of customer and
user experience,” said
Last year, the company acquired ING Direct (now Capital One 360) and HSBC’s U.S. card business. With these two major acquisitions along with customers’ growing demand for mobile and online channels, Capital One launched a multi-faceted digital transformation project designed to quickly integrate these two businesses and continue to position Capital One at the forefront of where the banking industry is going.
“These acquisitions gave us the opportunity to build the next generation online and mobile experience with a fully integrated view of the customer, supported by an infrastructure that is scalable and enables rapid development and deployment of new technologies, providing a better customer experience,” concluded Alexander.
"The theme of this year's InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It's

networking and other customer-focused technologies that are turning
companies and industries on their ear," said InformationWeek Editor In
"Every enterprise is now a digital business — or needs to become one fast. The organizations in our ranking are leading the way," continued Preston.
