If the past few years of being online has taught us anything it is that the Internet moves at an incredible pace and will continue to do so well into the future. That being said, websites are not sustainable. The designs, layouts, and even functionality that we implement today is going to change. Financial institutions must be aware of this fact, and adapt accordingly.
