What is the current market landscape and what is changing?
The survey shows that the adoption of cloud computing is relatively low, owing to concerns relating to security and reliability.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?
Financial market institutions are planning to increase their investments in cloud computing in the future, primarily driven by benefits such as increased agility and scalability and lower total cost of ownership (TCO).

What makes this report unique and essential to read?

Key Market Issues

Kable's survey shows that financial market institutions are placing high levels of importance on the strategic objective of improving security and privacy, with the highest average ratings of X on a scale of 1 to 4.

Financial market institutions are investing in enterprise applications which enable risk and compliance management, performance and profitability management, marketing and business intelligence, HR management, and front office management to streamline their business operations.

Amidst continuously evolving regulations and a highly competitive market there is a growing need for financial market institutions to respond quickly to changes and make decisions in order to increase business efficiency and productivity. Therefore, institutions are adopting business intelligence (BI) tools to transform data and information into meaningful insights.

Content management solutions enable financial market institutions to mitigate legal and regulatory risk by classifying and storing information in an organised manner and making it accessible for compliance purposes. Therefore, a large proportion of financial market institutions are planning to invest in these solutions in the next two years.

Financial market institutions are putting a lot of emphasis on deploying various IT systems management solutions and minimising their ICT infrastructure complexity, as the majority (X%) of institutions are operating in either a very complex or a somewhat complex ICT environment.

Key Highlights

In the next two years, financial market institutions are relatively keen on CRM application expenditure, as 63% of these firms are planning investments in this domain. CRM solutions offer functionality that enables institutions to better manage client opportunities and relationships, while helping institutions' sales, trading, and research functions.

The adoption of real-time BI is expected to gain momentum as institutions need to take proactive decisions depending on price swings or breaking news relating to relevant holdings. Not surprisingly therefore, the highest percentage of financial institutions are planning to invest in real-time BI in the next two years.

In the next two years, 59% of respondents are planning to invest in customer facing applications to improve customer satisfaction. The demand for tablet computing is also expected to increase as 53% of financial market firms are planning investments in this space in the next two years.

Server virtualization is the most widely deployed green IT solution by financial market institutions, with a penetration rate of 66%. Kable's survey finds that server virtualization is expected to receive higher investments, as X% of institutions are planning to deploy these solutions in the next two years.

Kable's survey finds that private and hybrid cloud are expected to bring in greater investments in the next twenty-four months, as 58% and 59% of institutions are planning to invest in these cloud computing models over this timeframe.
