The Eskimos may have 50 words for snow, but they’ve got nothing on modern-day business. Every industry has developed its own rich linguistic ecosystem, and the financial vertical is no different.

But what do all those terms and acronyms really mean? Why do we talk about “orchestration,” and how does it compare to “omnichannel?” What are “clients” when they’re not real people, and why are some thick while others are thin? How is professional services different from managed services?

Find the answers to these questions and many more in our helpful cheat sheet of industry terms, including a dive into multi-vendor software and services terminology. Then get out there and talk like a pro.
