When re-platforming projects are successful, they spur ongoing innovation, automation and customer centricity. They can also be complex, expensive and challenging. In this white paper we look at the latest models, trends and best practices enabling successful IT transformation programs, and explore potential opportunities for capital markets firms.
However you choose to approach IT transformation you must be ready to act decisively, breaking down silos and integrating front office, back office and risk. In this paper, we explore four core areas you need to consider:
Transformation means refocusing on a core model to better leverage capital markets trading and sales capabilities. A successful strategy needs to evaluate data availability and quality, as well as the agility and flexibility of new models.
Rather than relying on fragmented legacy architecture, firms are converging toward a single-target IT model. This often this means leveraging vendor-developed platform solutions as a core and adding unique configurations to create an advantage.
Market participants are moving toward more standardization and interoperability, enabling the sharing of business processes across silos and asset classes. Standardization and interoperability gains need to align with the ability to build out areas where IP is critical.
New technologies enable firms to respond and evolve with more flexibility. Cloud offers scalability, although security and cost concerns need to be addressed, while an Agile approach means large-scale transformation programs can be delivered rapidly.
In this period of accelerated development and change, companies are transitioning from past business
models to embrace a digital-first future. Capital markets leaders must transform in order to
take advantage of the opportunities presented by changing market dynamics. To support such change,
firms need to modernize their IT infrastructures.
