Inside Market Data gathered leading industry experts for a webcast on July 18, 2013 to discuss how financial trading firms are managing the big data demands of storage, analysis and access to gain competitive advantage for their investment decisions.
Storing, analyzing and accessing data is a growing problem for financial institutions. Competitive pressures and new regulations are requiring firms to efficiently handle increasing volumes and varieties of data in order to effectively manage and document risk - but this doesn't come cheap. And as the demands of Big Data exceed the constraints of traditional relational databases, evaluating legacy infrastructure and assessing new technology has become a necessity for most organizations, not only to gain competitive advantage, but also for compliance purposes. Whilst firms must strive to keep costs to a minimum, is now the time to make the change?
-- Assessing the cost implications of infrastructure change: what represents the best long-term investment?
-- What are the challenges of managing Big Data whilst continuing to comply with mounting regulatory requirements?
-- How is your organization's legacy infrastructure responding to the current challenges?
-- What are the key considerations of adopting a new database system or third-party provider?
