Witad 2019 Technology innovator of the year (vendor): Regina Williamson, LSEG
LSEG's technical product manager Regina Williamson won the technology innovator of the year (vendor) category.

In just two short years, Regina Williamson has earned her stripes at the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG). As technical product manager, she oversaw the migration of the LSEG’s onsite datacenter to the cloud and headed up the implementation of its data delivery solution using application programming interfaces (APIs). The growing recognition of her ability to drive innovation and deliver customer-centric technologies has been rewarded by her presence in the winners’ circle of this year’s Women in Technology & Data Awards, receiving the technology innovator of the year (vendor) category for her efforts.

The LSEG cloud migration initiative became an enabler for developing and delivering the firm’s technologies and services more efficiently and effectively. Leveraging the cloud’s flexibility, Williamson designed and implemented the Client API Data Delivery solution for one of the firm’s top-tier clients, which is now deployed as a stand-alone offering. According to the LSEG, the platform delivers data in a simplified and user-friendly format, drawing from a variety of sources across the FTSE Russell Index business. Its built-in features include APIs that can monitor user consumption and the issuing of smart alerts. The tracking functionality traces the processing of files in the system, provides user sign-on capabilities and offers a unique interface for admin users. “Presenting a digital data delivery solution to our clients was a defining moment, not just for me but for the entire team,” Williamson explains. “We were able to license our software development kit, enabling the solution further, and the project has shown that our collaboration across the board has been profound in propelling the way we can deliver information.”

Throughout the project development stages, Williamson demonstrated her dedication to developing user-friendly and client-focused technologies. When migrating to the cloud, she successfully consolidated several multi-format desktop applications onto a single web-based platform and developed a capability to allow for automated feedback from users. The data delivery solution also offers additional visuals and features including charts, analytics, and Google-like search functionality. As a young woman in the early stages of her career, Williamson has already showcased her ability to develop and deliver transformative technologies and manage largescale projects. And while men continue to dominate the technology realm, Williamson is determined to drive change by encouraging and guiding younger associates to speak up in crowded rooms and anchor their positions in the industry. She advises younger women, particularly across data and technology roles, to “stay curious, stay motivated, and always ask questions.”
