At the same time, the growth of high frequency and event-driven trading techniques is spurring demand for direct feed services sourced from exchanges and other trading venues, including alternative trading systems and multilateral trading facilities. Handling these high-speed data feeds its presenting market data managers and their infrastructure teams with a challenge: how to manage a broad range of low-latency data and connectivity services while maintaining high levels of trading performance?

Low latency technologies continue to be deployed by the financial markets - driven by the need to adopt them simply to stay in the trading game, and hopefully win at it. But low latency covers a wide range of components - from networks, to server hardware, to operating systems and middleware, to middleware, and to applications. In the low latency equation, there are many moving parts.

Over the past couple of years, Complex Event Processing has emerged as a hot technology for the financial markets, and its flexibility has been leveraged in applications as diverse as market data cleansing, to algorithmic trading, to compliance monitoring, to risk management. CEP is a solution to many problems, which is one reason why the emerging marketplace is growing, with many vendor options to choose from.

Even as the financial markets undergo unprecedented turmoil, the drive to lower latency shows no sign of abating. Why is this? Put simply, it’s because low latency technologies enable those competing in the financial markets - whether they be sell-side firms, buy-side firms, exchanges or alternative trading venues - to run ahead of the pack. And to win. Such concepts are explored in the round table debate inside, and we thank those that participated for their insight and wisdom.

Market data rates are skyrocketing. Just a few milliseconds make the difference between an optimal order fill and enough slippage to wipe out profit. New opportunities are opening up to leverage high frequency markets. New applications are being deployed atop of low latency architectures. Performance – in every sense – is key to playing in the new markets or being relegated to the second tier. This publication showcases innovative technology providers that live and breathe performance.
