NEW YORK, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
In collaboration with analysts from The Financial Services business unit, in this brief Ovum's Financial Services Technology team outlines the key changes in the financial markets industry, explains which trends will have the biggest impact, and analyses the implications and opportunities of these developments for both institutions and providers of technologies and services.
*This brief outlines business issues and technology enablers that are expected to affect the financial markets industry during 2010.
*The report covers developments in North America and Europe.

Technology budgets will be realigned to support these requirements; however, the bulk of CIO objectives in this sector will be around supporting cost optimisation to drive operational leverage
