The objective of the research study is to find out effectiveness of information technology in banking system delivery, in carrying out this project observation, personal interviews and questionnaire were employed in order to make the research simple and more practice in nature. The researcher reviewed related in literature in Chapter two of the topic the tried to review to extend which information technology is effective in banking industry.
The researcher also sourced his data through both primary & secondary sources in chapter four. In the analysis the researcher used the chi- square to present her findings both specific and general findings from the study, made recommendation and conclusion.

- SUMMARY OF FINDINGS
Information technology is the collection and gathering, recording storage processing and communication or micro-electronic-based, combination of computer and telecommunication technology. It is however, based on the convergence of data- processing and communication techniques, the former providing the information while the latter provided the vehicle for disseminating or communicating it.
Also information technology can be said to a relatively new field that combines the technology of the computer with that of communication, concerned with the gathering, recording, storage, processing and dissemination of information and represents the largest form of man-machine interface such as Internet services.
In so doing the work will be subdivided into five part that will follow logical procedure in executing the task.
In the first chapter, the authors introductory aspect of the work presented,
example statement of the problem, objective of the study, purpose of the study, research Question significance of the study, scope and limitation of the work and definition of terms.
The author went ahead to survey if a galaxy of existing literature on the subject matter of the research work.
Data were collected from primary and secondary sources for analysis the data so collected were presented interpreted and the raised hypotheses were tested.
The author also presented her findings and made recommendation and conclusion of the work.
Actually the banking industry has gone too far into Information Technology Information management and others in the delivery of their customer’s services.
Through information technology is subsumed in the concept of information management. Hence, information technology is narrower than information management but also depends heavily on network of systems technology just like information management therefore, it is a tool for information management. However, when we come the issue of the effectiveness of information Technology in banking system “delivery”. It is at great effect, in the sense that information technology has powered the banking industry. Service/ system delivery are made easy, no more time wanting wasting for just a simple banking transaction, information technology is and will continue to be of positive effectiveness to both banker and their customers. Well, it have some short comings in both the have same short comings in both the area of the bankers, the customers and the Nigeria economy of larger.
- BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
When we talk about the background we are to dance down to the information meaning of information technology and what is all about, since it is the central of thought.
However According to Akuwudike and Ugwu (2002). Information technology is the collection and gathering recording, storage, processing and communication a macro – electronic based, combination of computer and telecommunication technology. It is however, based on the convergence of data processing and communication techniques, the former providing the information while the latter provided the vehicle for disseminating or communicating it is hence, a relatively new filled that combines the technology of the computer with that of telecommunications and therefore represent the latest form of man-machine interface.
Moreover, it has played a vital role in the newer field of experts systems and artificial intelligence. Experts are able to achieve these fits because at the abundant knowledge on, and the relevance of information theory which itself is the study of information and the way if is communicated (Armstrong 1993).
Also information Technology can be said to a relatively new field that combines the technology of the computer with that of communication, concerned with the gathering, recording, storage, processing, and dissemination of information and represents the largest form of man – machine interface such as internet services; A1 experts system just but few (Jan 1987).
1.2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM

To analyze the effectiveness of information technology in banking services delivery the following hypothesis are formulated.
- Ho: information technology is not of any importance to the effective banking service delivery.
Hi: information technology is of great importance to the effective banking service delivery.
B Ho: Customer does not respond positively to the information technology items like ATM.
Hi: Customer respond positively to the information technology items like ATM.
C Ho: Internet is not really needed for effective service delivery in the banking industry.
Hi: Internet is really needed for effective service delivery in the banking industry.
D Ho: The banking industry does not experience any problems in adopting information technology as a mode of operation in customer service delivery.
Hi: The banking industry experience problems in adopting information technology as a mode of operation in customer service delivery.
- SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
Considering the great competition in Banking Industry presently, the use of information technology is of great importance to bank that may deem it fit to adopt it.
Information technology has represented a turn around change in banking cultures and the ways of doing things into new ways.
It has also enabled the banks to benefits from its array of produce is especially in the provision of service like on line banking, Internet banking etc. through the acquisition of programmes and websites.
These features enhanced communication and transaction across the world into a global village. Through these arrays of service and delivers information technology has been able to enthrow the world into the recent and widely orchestrated information super high way.
Information technology as has been highlighted earlier on, is an essential basis for planning, organization, managing administering and controlling the key operations and activities within the banking industry and other organization.
Finally, information technology provided to capacity to generate process and manipulate masses of continuous information quickly and economically and to ensure that it can be accessed rapidly.
- SCOPE AND LIMITATION OF THE STUDY
As the topic implies, the study will be restricted to the banking industry with particular reference to the Union Bank Plc Okpara Avenue branch and will be further split into four areas viz.
- Information Technology operation in the bank via customer services, cash and clearing and other sectioned.

Furthermore, some vital motivated or information which would have helped the quality of the research work are not to our reach due to lack of finance, unfaithfulness of some respondent to reveal certain information to the respondent to reveal certain information to the researcher.
COURSE LOAD: The researcher had many other academic problems to solve other than the project. The apportionment of time to all these activities made it had to be carried out under the desired time interval.
In spite of the above limitations, the researcher worked relentlessly within the limit to achieve the stated objectives of this work.
