Recorded Webinar: Deploying market infrastructure managed services

25 May 2022

Traditionally, trading organisations have procured and managed hardware themselves or through a third-party to support data services in a hosted environment – but as large firms look for efficiencies and smaller firms seek external help so they can focus on their core business, a shift in infrastructure ownership is needed.

This can be achieved by working with market infrastructure providers that offer not only hosting, but also a range of managed services from hardware procurement and management to ongoing support.

Listen to the webinar to find out more about:

  • The challenges of sustaining market infrastructure
  • Types of solutions offered by third-party vendors
  • How to build a business case for change in infrastructure ownership
  • Practical approaches to shifting from in-house to managed services
  • The benefits of adding managed services to your trading infrastructure

Speakers:

Bill Fenick, Independent Trading Technology and Managed Services Specialist

Robert Johnson, CTO, Coremont

Nicolas Bonnet, Director, Global Connectivity Product, ICE

Moderator: Sarah Underwood, Editor,
