Signal Centre Deploys Push Technology’s Diffusion Data Platform

Subscribe to our newsletter

Signal Centre has integrated Push Technology’s Diffusion Intelligent Data Platform into its Signal Centre Trading Platform. The Diffusion platform takes on the burden of delivering information to traders, allowing Signal Centre to focus its resources on evaluating markets, scaling the business and managing customer demand.

Launched by spread-betting broker IG Index in 2015, Signal Centre aggregates trading signals from providers like Trading Central, Auto Chartist and PIA First, giving users intelligence for input into their trading strategies.

Signal Centre was looking for a data management platform that would manage trade recommendations and analysis data from its back-end systems while reliably delivering information to thousands of customers globally. The requirement for multiple-language support and a variety of data delivery mechanisms was cumbersome for Signal Centre’s back-end systems, resulting in increased latency.

To solve the problem, Signal Centre needed a platform that could separate the firm’s existing back-end systems from the load generated by trading clients. The Push Technology Diffusion platform has reduced the need for persistent polling of Signal Centre’s back-end database, only sending updates when there are changes to the data. Since deploying the Diffusion platform, Signal Centre has observed a significant reduction in bandwidth usage and the quantity of data exchanged.

According to Steve O’Hare, managing director at Signal Centre: “With Diffusion, we can focus on analyzing markets, instead of worrying about reliably distributing our information in real-time and in multiple languages, to traders across the globe. Crucially, Diffusion enables us to quickly scale our business and we can confidently provide our Signal Centre Trading Platform as an enterprise quality, future-proof solution for our trading clients.”
