Why is it important?

Technology development along with extensive developments in electronic commerce has not only changed the traditional commerce but also revolutionized communities’ lives. Electronic banking is also no exception since it has been influenced by these developments. These developments; however, have been confronted with challenges and barriers in areas such as cultural, economic and social, strategic and structural field, in every society.


The result of the questionnaire’s analysis indicated that customers’ satisfaction, employees’ satisfaction, government benefit and society benefit are the indicators of strategic barriers. Moreover, formality, centralization and complexity are the investigated indicators in structural barriers. All of the above mentioned factors have a meaningful relationship with development of electronic banking.
