Bloomberg Tech Survey Finds CIOs Shifting to Managed Solutions

May 23, 2011

NEW YORK — Leading financial technology executives say they
want innovations that allow them to process more data more
quickly, cheaply and reliably, according to results of a
Bloomberg survey revealed today. The poll was taken at Bloomberg
LINK’s first Enterprise Technology Summit, an invitation-only
seminar that brought together more than 100 Chief Information
Officers (CIOs) and technology decision-makers from major
financial services firms.

The executives were asked 10 questions on key technology trends
and the results included:

Spending – 76 percent said they will expect to increase
information technology (IT) spending over the next 12 months;
only 17 percent said they will decrease and 7 percent said
spending will remain the same

Managed Solutions – 55 percent said they are shifting more of
their overall capital expense to managed solutions; with only
33 percent saying no and 12 percent saying they don’t know

Compliance – 84 percent said they have increased spending on
regulatory and compliance systems in the past two years; only
5 percent decreased and 11 percent said spending remained the

Cloud – When asked what infrastructure investment areas have
yielded the most return on investment (ROI) in the last year,
cloud computing received 45 percent of the responses, another
33 percent said low-latency trading and 23 percent said
complex event processing (CEP).

“Bloomberg is expanding into enterprise technology services,”
said Bloomberg President Dan Doctoroff, who gave opening
remarks. “Our customers are facing increasing pressure on
returns, so we are using our expertise, products and new
partnerships to help them lower costs and improve their IT
infrastructure’s efficiency and effectiveness.”

Shawn Edwards, Bloomberg Chief Technology Officer, said,
“Technology executives are under enormous pressure to innovate
and solve problems. To meet those challenges, we are providing
clients with our expertise and letting them leverage the same
infrastructure that powers the Bloomberg Professional service,
the world’s leading platform used by more than 300,000 business
and financial professionals globally.”

Speakers at the summit discussed key advancements in cloud
computing, managed solutions and security during panels
moderated by Bloomberg executives and staff from Bloomberg
Businessweek, Bloomberg News and Bloomberg Television.
