An interesting trend has emerged in the 14 years that IDC Financial Insights has been tracking the performance of the top technology organizations that support the financial services industry worldwide. The Goliaths of the technology industry, those firms whose total revenues represent their breadth of solutions and services across many vertical industries, are losing ground to those relatively smaller IT firms that focus on financial services as their main markets. The shift has been dramatic, especially over the last 5 years, and it portends a future where industry focus may be they key to financial success.

The UK election once more surprised/ shocked elites, pollsters, and most of all the British Prime Minister Theresa May, who's strategy to extend her party's lead in parliament with a snap election ended in disaster. The strategy backfired, as the recent terror attacks and austerity measures in the social system dominated the discussion and particularly younger voters demonstrated their disagreement with the confrontational course of the Tory government with regard to the upcoming Brexit negotiations. What does the outcome of the election mean for the Brexit negotiations and what does this mean for financial institutions in the City?

The IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Financial Services 2017 Predictions study developed seven drivers that both CIOs and their business partners should consider over the next 36 months. The list is not meant to be exhaustive nor is it meant to be final. IDC Financial Insights publishes a new list of drivers annually, and many are evolutionary. Last year's drivers were instrumental in developing this list, just as this year's drivers will be critical to the formulation of next year's drivers.
