Due to the specific features of the banking sector, technological capabilities to accumulate a massive pool of customer information about banking services, the German banking sector has more capacity than other industries to launch and sell banking services that will be in high demand among users. The author points out that innovative methods and solutions were developed on the basis of mathematical and statistical models. It is stated that a progressive tool for providing customer-oriented services and products, in the banking sector, is currently defined as “Big Data & Analytics”.
The main purpose of the study is to identify the peculiarities of the use in the banking practice of the analytical tool “Big Data & Analytics” and the functional ability of this tool to ensure stable customer loyalty in the course of using banking services.
