As new liquidity venues emerge and financial markets grow in complexity and competitiveness, access to increasing volumes of ultra-low and low-latency market data across multiple venues can be a costly and complex undertaking even for the most sophisticated trading firms. At the same time, trading strategies continue to become more complex and multi-directional in nature requiring firms to seek competitive advantage through reduced time to trade.
To execute against these opportunities, market data networks and applications must deliver information at ever-increasing rates with minimal latency. Market data arriving even a few microseconds late can have a significant impact.
This demand for cost-effective, low-latency market data delivery has driven the most competitive market participants to adopt innovative technology solutions delivered via cloud-based platforms.
