Capital market and exchange market participants around the world are working to assess and apply emerging technologies. The results of the Celent Global Exchange CIO Survey released in July 2018 found that a high level of respondents was tackling emerging technologies. More than 70% of respondents said that they were already using or working on pilots when it came to cloud, artificial intelligence (AI), robotic process automation, and blockchain technologies.

Market participants worldwide are eagerly watching the modernization of the capital markets infrastructure (CMI) at the same time they are accelerating the modernization of information systems including their in-house core systems.
