Live from WFIC: Jeff Wells Outlines Industry's Capacity Concerns

Jeff Wells, Exegy and the Financial Information Forum

At industry association FISD's World Financial Information Conference in San Francisco, Jeff Wells, vice president of product marketing at Exegy and co-chair of the Financial Information Forum's market data capacity working group, says that data volumes and capacity issues are a concern for all market participants, and at all levels within their organizations.

With market data traffic setting new record peak volumes last Friday, Oct. 7 (6.65 million messages per second), the markets remain highly volatile, though speakers on a panel moderated by Wells expressed optimism that technology is advancing fast enough to handle the increases, but added that standards around measurement are needed to support capacity planning decisions.
