Change is Happening at Low-Latency.com …

Subscribe to our newsletter

In the financial markets, the only constant is change … and over the past couple of years, the world of low latency has changed. At one time, reducing latency was an arms race, with zero as the finish line. Now, with the race close to a conclusion, the focus is shifting to the high performance compute and big data management technologies required to drive predictive analytics for real time trading.

For sure, latency is still important, and there will be continued efforts to reduce it in a cost-effective manner. Wireless deployments, new server and storage technologies, FPGAs, etc. will all see further investment. But a lot more investment – and innovation – will be directed at new and upgraded analytics technologies and data management infrastructure in order to make the right trades, not just the fastest ones.

We’ve written about this shift for many months now. We’ve discussed the convergence of low latency and big data (and cloud, which is increasingly the delivery paradigm). We’ve also discussed how analytics will drive effective and profitable strategies, which we’ve dubbed Intelligent Trading.

So now it’s time to make the right decision for our community and readership. From Monday, November 11, Low-Latency.com will become IntelligentTradingTechnology.com. All of the existing low latency content will remain, but our coverage of analytics and real-time big data management will increase to keep you informed of where the action is moving to. If you are a community member, there is no action to take apart from bookmarking the new URL. Your membership information will remain the same. Not a community member? Then now is a great time to sign up, for free, to get access to all the content and to engage with other community members.

For more information about Intelligent Trading, you might like to check out this industry briefing, sponsored by TIBCO Software, titled: “An Architecture For Intelligent Trading – Leveraging Big Data in Motion for Increased Profits” – Download it Here.

We hope to see many of you at the Low-Latency Summit in New York City on November 12. It will be the final event under that branding – with future events to be known as Intelligent Trading Summits – and of course we can chat in more detail 1:1 with what this evolution really means. Get more info on the Summit, and register here – you might be able to come for free!
