I was recently invited to take part in a panel at the Intelligent Trading Summit in London – a fascinating topic exploring the current and future state of trading, industry trends, and supporting technology and architecture.

Operational analytics are beginning to appear in trading workflows with the aim of mimicking the success of latency measurement and its ability to optimise trading connections for business advantage, but are operational analytics a step too far or can they, too, deliver benefits? These questions and more were raised during an expert panel session at last week’s A-Team Group Intelligent Trading Summit.

Managed services and cloud solutions are gaining traction in capital markets, not only because they reduce costs, but also because they offer opportunities to test innovative ideas without the need for capital expenditure.

The concept of intelligent trading is gaining momentum as trading firms acknowledge that competitive advantage is no longer only about speed, but also about a flexible and scalable architecture that can handle Big Data and analytics on the fly using technologies such as in-memory data and complex event processing.

Big Data is growing in both volume and adoption, but it needs to be clean, synchronised, analysed and used sensibly in tackling business problems if it is to reach its full potential in the trading environment.

What a great way to get involved with a new company. After only a few weeks on board with The A-Team Group it was all systems go for our two flagship events in London last week, where we were able to showcase the range of industry debate around the market dynamics driving pre- and post-trade technology activity.
