IT spending on market data infrastructures to reach USD 7.8B by the end of 2010

According to this report by Aite, trading systems growth is set to continue at around 1B a year for the next 3 years. Among the factors challenging vendors, Aite mentions markets fragmentation and a further increase in data volume, which in most cases is already at a critical level for most of today's OM/ES platforms (believe me, I know something about it):

"Trading systems have not kept up with the growth in data coming at them," says Brad Bailey, senior analyst with Aite Group and co-author of this report. "The complexity of the high-performance infrastructure and the rapidity with which it evolves has created opportunities for specialized vendors."
