In order to collect the data for the content framework of this white paper, Statista conducted secondary data research on the central background of the new BaFin regulation. In addition, we researched potential contacts, including CEOs, CFOs and IT managers of financial companies, who were then invited to participate in a quantitative survey in order to generate exclusive data. Based on the information obtained, Statista Q’s market research team, in close consultation with the IT consulting firm, created a questionnaire, programmed it, and invited the contacts to participate in the survey. After conducting the field phase, the results were analysed and prepared in the form of tables. In cooperation with our Statista in-house agency C&ID, a visually appealing whitepaper was created based on the data from the research and survey.
