Can Operational Analytics & Performance Measurement Boost Trading Returns?

Latency measurement is an established practice that has been used with great success to optimize trading connections for business advantage, but will operational analytics become the next big business differentiator?

A panel of industry experts at our A-Team Group Intelligent Trading Summit on March 4 in London will now discuss whether this latest development is a step too-far or too-fast? Is more practical evidence required before wide scale adoption occurs?

But questions remain whether operational analytics of this kind can truly yield business benefits.

This panel will explore what is possible, what other business implications arise from customising these capabilities, and whether practitioners can create competitive advantage from it, as well as answering your questions from the floor.
