2014 was an exciting year in capital markets here at SAP, as well as around the globe. Whether you’re celebrating Boxing Day today, or simply recovering from your Christmas and/or Hannukah holidays, please enjoy a few late presents to review from the highlights of the past year:

As markets recover in some spots, (welcome to the 18,000 Dow), and continue to roil in others, (gasoline is retailing under $2 per gallon in
many places in the US
, while the rouble continues to wobble), capital markets firms are laying out their strategy for 2015 while continuing to focus on regulation, risk and the growing importance of “Big Data”. SAP’s Banking View blog covered these topics for Capital Markets firms throughout 2014, and you can link to several recaps here:

Big Data: http://blogs.sap.com/banking/2014/04/28/when-it-comes-to-data-banks-must-go-big-or-go-home-part-ii/

In addition to these virtual conversations, capital markets leaders had opportunity to meet in person and delve deeply into these and other strategic topics at the SAP Financial Services forums in New York (http://blogs.sap.com/banking/events/sap-financial-services-forum-new-york-city/) and London.  (http://blogs.sap.com/banking/events/sap-financial-services-forum-emea/).

Keynote replays from London can be viewed online here.

A lot will be new in 2015, with further development and delivery of the partnership between SAP and Calypso (press release and further links here: https://www.sapappsdevelopmentpartnercenter.com/en/news/calypso-technology-extends-sap-partnership_100/) as well as exciting new product and service announcements that will begin to appear in January, and continue right through SAPPHIRE Now in Orlando in May, and all throughout the year.

Look for links to all the new content in the Capital Markets section of the Banking View blog, and on your favorite social media sites!
