With the proliferation of real-time and historical data from sources such as connected devices, web, social media, sensors, log files and transactional applications, Big Data is rapidly gaining traction from a diverse range of vertical sectors. The financial services industry is no exception to this trend, where Big Data has found a host of applications ranging from targeted marketing and credit scoring to usage-based insurance, data-driven trading, fraud detection and beyond. Recognising this, the Malaysian government projected the digital economy to form 20% of Malaysia’s GDP by 2020.
In light of this development, capital market infrastructure could also face major changes in the coming years as the industry moves towards more cloud-based solutions and high-quality structured data and automated reporting. Various new forms of technology such as Artificial Intelligence, robotic process automation and machine learning will be heavily incorporated as the industry begins to adopt more innovative solutions.
