IT transformation is a journey

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:

Refocusing business models

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.

Rethinking IT 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.

Balancing standardization with flexibility

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.

Leveraging innovation, from cloud to Agile

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.
