Talking Intelligent Trading with Andrew Delaney: ITS – An Architecture for Intelligent Trading

With just a week away from our inaugural Intelligent Trading Summit at London’s America Square conference centre – yes, that’s next Tuesday, March 4 so register to attend here if you haven’t already done so – I thought it would be useful to take a look at what’s in store. So here’s how we plan to set the scene, as it were.

As I’ve mentioned before, we see ITS as the first step in a journey to discover what Intelligent Trading is all about. We value your input on how you see this new world where Low Latency meets Big Data for Big, Fast Analytics.

We feel privileged to welcome as opening keynote Alessandro Petroni, Senior Principal Architect, Financial Services, TIBCO Software, who will kick things off with a discussion: An Architecture for Intelligent Trading. As you may be aware, Alessandro worked with us to produce a Tibco-sponsored white paper bearing the same title, and which in essence helped us embark down the trail of Intelligent Trading. You can download the paper here.

Alessandro will also join us for the first panel, which I’ll be moderating, joined by Richard Bell, Fixed Income eTrading Latency, Performance & Big Data, at BNP Paribas; Stuart Grant, EMEA Business Development Manager – Financial Services, SAP; and Mike Powell, Managing Director, Enterprise, Thomson Reuters.

During this early session, we plan to expand the discussion, attempting to the answer the question: What Does Intelligent Trading Look Like? The panel, we hope, will shed some light on what’s needed in Implementing an Intelligent Trading Architecture. Points we’ll be addressing include:

  • What elements are needed to create an intelligent trading architecture?
  • What can be bought, what needs to be proprietary?
  • What performance challenges are there?
  • Where are the bottlenecks?
  • How to scale?
  • How to be reliable and resilient?
  • How to make it agile and adaptable?

We hope you find the prospect appetising. If there are additional questions you’d like answered, come along and ask them.
