Agile, new market entrants are successfully competing with market incumbents by leveraging microservices and containers to externalize nonvalue-added and non-differentiated processes and optimize their cost structures.
Goals and Objectives
For capital markets firms with burdensome and costly legacy systems and processes, effectively compete with agile, new market entrants by re-architecting their cost structures using managed services for commodified processes.
Cloud, infrastructure as a service, API management software, microservices, artificial intelligence, and machine learning
Use Case Summary
The capital markets are finding strategic value in the delineation between commodified and value-added tasks. The internal automation or externalization to managed service providers of nonvalue-added products or services is allowing firms to operate leaner, more agile businesses.
