This IDC Financial Insights Perspective discusses the agreement by D+H to acquire Fundtech, a provider of transaction and payment software, which was announced on March 20, 2015. While the acquisition of Fundtech was not a surprise, few anticipated that D+H would be the suitor, particularly after D+H's acquisition in 2013 of Harland Financial Services (HFS). This Perspective provides some immediate reactions to the acquisition of Fundtech, though the full impact of this acquisition will take some time to absorb. This document provides the specifics, discusses some strategic analysis, and provides some insight into how this acquisition potentially impacts the payments landscape.
