Building Web-based Trading Applications video webcast

Is it feasible to adopt HTML5 as an enterprise development technology now, what are the issues, and how can they be addressed? WatersTechnology gathered leading industry experts to discuss this on September 20, 2012.

Building and maintaining web-based single-dealer trading platforms has historically been expensive and mostly limited to only the largest financial services firms. Many of those have dealt with some of the complexities by utilising proprietary technologies such as Microsoft Silverlight or Adobe Flash. With modern browsers and the demands of smartphones and tablets there is a consensus that these technologies are about to be superseded by HTML5. However the HTML5 standard is still not fully agreed or consistently implemented and its associated technologies such as CSS3 and JavaScript were not designed for large-scale enterprise application development projects.

• What are the business advantages of choosing HTML5 for web-based trading applications compared to other technologies such as browser add-ins or locally installed clients?
• What are the current challenges facing developers when it comes to designing and deploying web-based trading applications?
• Is HTML5 now the best choice of technology for building and deploying web-based trading applications?
• What tools, utilities, frameworks and development environments are available to help reduce the risk in such complex projects?
