The evolution of e-banking in the last decade has been significant. Every bank, in parallel with the traditional business offerings, provides more or less advanced e-banking services to various categories of customers. Nowadays it seems that we have reach a first point of maturity. The initial perception of e-banking as an alternative channel issue seems to be inadequate to summarise the emerging challenges for e-banking.

New strategic considerations for e-banking initiate a dialogue for a new era of services and required infrastructures. All the forecasts concerning e-banking are very optimistic. A very promising future for e-banking sector sets new challenges for the strategic management of e-banking divisions within banking organisations.

This special issue brings together academics, practitioners, researchers, and aims to deliver a reference edition for all those interested in the strategic management of e-banking.
