Leveraging Interconnection & the Cloud for Faster, Smarter Business Decisions

The ability for capital markets firms to make the most judicious, repeatable and accurate business and investment decisions depends on the quality and availability of the information underpinning them. It is therefore essential for firms to be able to connect easily and seamlessly to an ecosystem of networks, applications, information providers and multiple cloud service providers, irrespective of their location, allowing them to focus on their core day-to-day competencies, while simultaneously minimizing their fixed operating costs.  

This webinar will focus on the following key issues:

  • The business and operational benefits capital markets firms stand to gain by being part of an ecosystem of execution venues, trading platforms, market data vendors and other service providers, and buy-side and sell-side firms
  • How capital markets firms can accelerate their digital transformation while managing  their fixed operating costs and improving their time to market through co-location
  • The benefit of interconnecting with key partners and suppliers and simultaneously consuming cloud-based data and ancillary services in order to trade smarter
  • What end-users and service providers should be looking for in a hosting partner and the benefits they can reasonably expect as part of a capital markets ecosystem with seamless cloud access
  • How the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the digital transformation and the move to cloud-based services for capital markets firms, and the extent to which such offerings will continue to find traction across the industry

Optimizing Decision-Making to Support Business Growth: Data Analytics Holds the Key

Just over a year ago, the global capital markets witnessed unprecedented volatility and trading volumes as a direct consequence of the uncertainty precipitated by the Covid-19 pandemic. This, in turn, led to increased demand from across the business for more data—most notably historic data—as a means of addressing that market uncertainty. However, data is only a viable solution to address the market challenges of today if firms have the tools to interrogate that data and identify signals and trends hidden within it that can be used to enhance incumbent business processes, and by so doing, support business growth.

This webinar will focus on the following issues:

  • The lessons the industry has learned over the last 12 months and whether incumbent data analytics tools were able to help mitigate some of the challenges facing market participants.
  • The tangible business benefits that sophisticated data analytics tools allow firms to achieve.
  • The functions/attributes that an ‘ideal’ analytics tool would need to include in order to be considered fit for purpose.
  • The extent to which cloud-based data management tools hold the key for capital markets firms when looking to identify signals and derive value from large and complex datasets.
