“With respect to next-generation themes, regulatory compliance and data management are the top priorities for capital market businesses,” said Jimit Arora, vice president at Everest Group. “In terms of digital initiatives, we see considerably more investment in mobile technologies than in social media and cloud, although buyers are beginning to show increased adoption of the cloud model. For service providers, these trends will drive increased investment in risk management and compliance, productivity enhancements such as automation, and ever more responsive and agile IT environments.”
