Recorded Webinar: High-performance, real-time multi-stream data processing for trading analytics and risk management

7 December 2022

Financial analytics platforms in Hedge Funds are often segmented between real-time and back-office analytics systems fed by slower batch processes. To support winning analytics, hedge funds and other trading firms need to bring together real-time streams with historical analytic data in a single high-performance data store to refresh reports and risk models in near-real-time.

Listen to the webinar to find out more about:

  • How to integrate multiple real-time data streams with historical data sets.
  • How to manage both in-cloud and on-prem data to optimize performance.
  • How to cope with data volume spikes and unstructured data sets.
  • How to implement in a scalable, manageable way without the need for expensive specialist IT staff.
