Though pioneered in the "big" datasets of consumer and social media data to identify retail trends and marketing opportunities, the concept of Big Data analysis is being adapted to the financial markets, where rising data volumes and the sheer breadth of "market data" content types create new types of Big Data challenges around mitigating risk and identifying trading opportunities in real time based on countless potential inputs and factors.
However, firms require complex and expensive tools and technology infrastructures to achieve these aims. The purpose of this webcast discussion will be to assess the opportunities and challenges involved, and where and how financial markets participants─and data providers that serve them─can benefit most from Big Data analysis technologies.
