Recorded Webinar: Data as a Service: Realizing its Value for Data Management

15 June 2017

Faced with substantial and rapidly changing regulatory demands, trading firms are realizing the need for agility in the way they handle data. With global regulations like MiFID II and FRTB reshaping data requirements – and the prospect of future measures introducing yet more reporting obligations – firms need to put in place data management platforms that both facilitate their current obligations and future-proof their data operations.

To meet this challenge, many firms are embracing the concept of Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) as a means of harnessing web-scale technologies for financial data management. DaaS makes re-tooling in response to new regulation an easier and more seamless process, allowing firms to manage their market data and order and execution data more effectively, and generate analytics in support of key applications like trade surveillance, best execution and transaction cost analysis.

This webinar will explore how firms can benefit from DaaS, what they must consider when implementing and managing DaaS, and how to best leverage DaaS capabilities to support analysis and regulatory compliance.
