WatersTechnology is the financial services industry’s premier provider of technology and data-related information.

I joined WatersTechnology 10 years ago. When I started, the idea of using, say, a public cloud provider was anathema. Today, not only have banks and asset managers embraced public cloud providers either directly or through their vendor partners, many are deploying a multi-cloud model. This is all to say that in the world of tech, a trend becomes a fact of life fairly quickly.

The embrace of cloud technology by the capital markets has led to firms wanting more data. That desire gave birth to this alternative data thirst that we’re seeing today. That trend was only made possible thanks to advancements in processing power and tools like AI – from machine learning to natural language processing to robotic process automation – to help extract value from information.

And looking to the horizon, blockchain, quantum computing, deep learning, 5G networks, the internet of things, homomorphic encryption and things we don’t even know about today will have a profound effect on the capital markets. We here at WatersTechnology pride ourselves on staying abreast of the latest trends, breaking news, and making sure readers are informed about what’s coming down the pike. We’ve been doing this for more than 25 years. And when everyone is talking wildly about, say, how revolutionary blockchain already is, we are talking to the actual technologists inside banks, asset managers, vendors, exchanges and regulators to get a true accounting of its adoption – or lack thereof.

We believe that our users are able to make better, more informed decisions thanks to the information we provide.
