Stream computing for financial services

The challenge

From information comes insight

Across the global financial system, data doesn't just come in waves—it's an incessant blizzard. In fact, as one example of the volumes of data, some financial organizations consume market data at rates exceeding one million messages per second, twice the peak rates they experienced only a year ago. But without a business intelligence architecture that can process vast amounts of data in any format, in real time, your financial services enterprise could be lost in a whiteout.


The solution

The solution strengthens the instrumentation of your trading processes by allowing every bit of data pulled from a wide variety of sources (video, audio, market data, news feeds and sensor data streams) to become more visible, measurable and actionable.
