DALLAS,TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/14 -- The banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) market -- estimated at US$105-130 billion -- still reigns as the largest adopter of information technology outsourcing (ITO) services. In fact, driven by a resurgence of demand, the BFSI market in 2013 logged a 25 percent increase in number of transactions signed (marking a five-year high in transaction volume) and an 80 percent increase in total contract value.
The resurgence of discretionary spending by global BFSI firms in 2013 was focused on development of specific applications for regulatory compliance, risk management, channel-specific initiatives (social, mobile, etc.) and customer analytics.
These findings and more are discussed in a new Everest Group report, IT Outsourcing in Banking - Annual Report 2014: The Return of the King.

"In 2013, banks and financial services firms battled against low interest rates, strained revenue growth, the growing pressures of regulatory compliance, and the rise of the digital consumer," said Jimit Arora, vice president at Everest Group. "This translated into a resurgence of IT outsourcing in BFSI, as buyers reinvented their business models, redefined their technical priorities, and reallocated their IT spend. The clearly emerging priorities of buyers include risk management and compliance, industrialization of solutions, IT transformation, data management, and customer analytics."

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of present...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve.

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...
