IT Outsourcing in European Banking and Capital Markets – Service Provider Landscape with PEAK Matrix™ Assessment 2014

Globally, BFSI is the largest vertical in terms of the total share in ITO spending. Of the global BFSI ITO activity in the last five years, Europe accounted for the highest wallet share. Further, within ITO transactions, Application Outsourcing (AO) accounted for a majority of the engagements.

The European banking and capital markets industry is currently going through an evolution. While the industry has been dominated by large-sized service providers, it is witnessing an emergence in tier-2 regional service providers. Demand for AO services is on the rise in Continental Europe region while Nordics and Germany remain underserved with scope of generating higher demand in near future. Further, the European banks and financial firms continue to operate in an uncertain regulatory environment and a strong move towards digitization which constitute the majority of the IT investments in the region. Chief Information Officers (CIOs) in Europe are looking at leveraging the next-generation services, such as social media, mobility, analytics, and cloud, to achieve cost arbitrage while enhancing customer experience and meeting regulatory compliance. As both European buyers (banks and capital markets firms) and global service providers seek to design solutions for these challenges, it is essential to understand the specific changes in the market environment, and devise an effective approach to adapt accordingly.

In this research, we analyze the current trends and the future outlook for large, multi-year application outsourcing relationships for the European banking and capital markets sector.
