Big Data webcast


Inside Market Data gathered leading industry experts for a webcast on December 5, 2012 to discuss how firms are utilizing the concept of Big Data analytics.

The concept of Big Data analysis has taken hold across the financial services industry, analyzing greater volumes of data from more datasets to generate sales, marketing and trading opportunities. How can this new paradigm be applied to aggregating and deriving value from financial market data, and how does it differ from the financial analytics that have come before?

• How do you define Big Data in a financial services/market data environment to differentiate it from the increasing volumes and velocity of market data? Where have firms focused Big Data efforts so far for-and beyond-the trading floor, and what other areas of information analysis could potentially be exploited in this way?
• What are some of the challenges of capturing and combining large volumes of data from disparate sources-including both structured and unstructured data-that lack any standardized formats or cross-referencing?
• Would Big Data analysis be possible without the underlying structure provided by recent enterprise data management (EDM) initiatives? Do firms and vendors need to enforce new data management techniques and strategies to move from EDM to Big Data management?
