Talking Intelligent Trading with Andrew Delaney: Step Right Up! ITS is Coming To Town!

The inaugural Intelligent Trading Summit – successor to A-Team’s acclaimed Low-Latency Summits – kicks off in London on March 4 with an action-packed programme of presentations and panel discussions around the convergence of Analytics, driven by Big Fast Data, to initiate the best trades, executed with Low Latency!

We are delighted to welcome as platinum sponsor Fidessa, whose Steve Grob will join me in setting the scene for the day in his opening keynote address: Intelligent Trading Technology to Boost Performance and Reduce Trading Costs. Fidessa tops a list of blue-chip sponsors, including IBM, DataWatch, Azul Systems, SGI and many other exhibitors and presenters.

As usual, the day’s agenda features morning keynotes and ‘big picture’ plenary panels, with the afternoon devoted to more focused ‘drill down’ workshops (either presentations or panels).

In putting the programme together, we have tried to present a particular challenge or objective within the ‘Intelligent Trading’ framework, and then draw upon select industry experts to discuss approaches to achieving that objective. We think this will make for a lively day of dialogue. We hope you agree and get involved!

Within this format, we’ll be addressing a number of topics: Implementing Intelligent Trading, Pre-Trade and Trade-Time Risk Management, Hardware Solutions for Reducing Latency, Managed Services and Trading in the Cloud, and many more.

With an unwavering eye on the business case, we expect the Intelligent Trading Summit to provide real insight into what the next generation of trading architectures will look like, as it leverages Big Data technologies at Low Latency speeds, to deliver unprecedented analytical insight for better decision-making across all aspects of the financial markets enterprise.

We hope you can join us on March 4, and again on May 13 when we’ll be presenting once again in New York.
