ICT Investment Trends in Financial Markets: FinTech and digital transformation driving ICT investment strategies

Summary
"ICT Investment Trends in Financial Markets", report presents the findings from a survey of 168 financial markets institutions regarding their Information & Communications Technology (ICT) investment trends. The survey investigates how financial markets institutions currently allocate their ICT budgets across the core areas of enterprise ICT expenditure: hardware, software, IT services, communications, and consulting.

The report illustrates the core technologies that financial markets institutions are investing in, including enterprise applications, business intelligence, IoT, and cloud computing. The survey also highlights the approach to purchasing technology adopted by financial markets institutions. Through GlobalData’s survey, the report aims to provide a better insight to ICT vendors and service providers when pitching their solutions to financial markets institutions.

Investment in financial technology (FinTech) is becoming a pressing need in a bid to offer new products, and embrace technology to create faster, more efficient, and secure infrastructure and platforms.

As FinTech continues to transform the industry, financial market institutions plan to turn their fortunes around by investing in the latest ICT domains that can enable them to adhere to the strict regulatory norms, cut overheads, streamline operations, and improve performance.

The use of ICT is enabling institutions to streamline their inter-bank payment systems and automate security settlement systems that facilitate higher cost reduction and better risk management, regulatory compliance, and customer retention.

In particular, it provides an in-depth analysis of the following -
- How ICT budgets are set to change in 2017 in terms of their overall size
- Allocation across the core elements of IT spend, including hardware, software, services, communications, and consulting
- Distribution of ICT money in areas such as the networks, applications, service desk, and data centers

- Vendor satisfaction ratings for various core and advanced technology categories
- Insight into financial markets institutions’ preferred buying approaches
- Business and IT objectives that financial markets institutions are looking to achieve through their IT investment strategies
- Factors that are influencing financial markets institutions’ decisions to select an ICT provider
