Banking is a prime example of an industry whose traditional operating model is being radically impacted by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Historically, a bank would have millions of customers who would either visit their nearest branch or, more recently, its website to use one of its products. Now, however, these products are no longer necessarily consumed directly though the bank itself. As a result, the bank as an entity is becoming redundant.
