Signing Off for The Holidays … With Some Predictions ..

Subscribe to our newsletter

Low-Latency.com is taking a little break for the holidays, so now is the time to extend seasonal greetings to our community, and to wish everyone well for 2012.  But we thought we’d leave you with some personal predictions for the next year …

– Low latency covers a broad spectrum. Reducing milliseconds is for some just as important as pushing down nanoseconds for others. More people – maybe even the marketing departments of some big vendors – will understand this in 2012.

– Use of managed services – infrastructure, data, connectivity – will accelerate in 2012, especially for those not at the cutting edge of latency. But convincing the big banks to go this route will be tough.

– Hardware acceleration – FPGAs and Network Processors – will become pretty common in 2012. The skills and tools are becoming more plentiful, and the momentum is there. Not even Intel’s Sandy Bridge can stop it.

– Low latency in Latin America will get even hotter! Brazil is old hat now. Mexico is surging, as is Chile, Colombia … and I think I need some time in Panama soon!

– Low latency will meet Big Data – to drive down compute latency for complex trading models and risk management. And we’ll be launching a sister community for Big Data for Finance – stay tuned!

Now, over to you for your predictions. Leave a comment on this post, and you may well be included in our industry-wide predictions kickoff to 2012.

Happy Holidays!
