A-Team Insight White Papers

Big Data in Trading and Risk Management

This industry briefing – sponsored by SAP – provides insight and analysis on how financial markets firms see Big Data approaches and technologies being leveraged for trading and risk applications.

The briefing draws upon research conducted by A-Team Group’s BigDataForFinance.com web community, which included a survey of major financial markets firms based in the U.S.  The survey was conducted during the spring and summer of 2012.

Because Big Data is a new discipline, the analysis sought to highlight opinions from respondents, rather than hard information about their own firm’s usage and experience.

Respondents demonstrated a good understanding of how Big Data approaches might be leveraged across a number of key trading and risk applications, with substantial commonality of thought in some cases.
