Accumulating and working with growing scales financial data, particularly trade and quote history, was proving problematic for our Global Equities Derivative Group. Traditional technologies and relational databases could not keep up.
Requests for historical market data have increased as our market share has grown. TickSmith’s platform will offer clients access to our historical trading data as well as a powerful set of reports and analytics.
With the launch of our enhanced web brokerage platform, we wanted to improve data visualization, intra-day charting and portfolio views. While that process sounds fairly straightforward, it requires large amounts of data that needs to be normalized and adjusted, TickSmith has helped streamline that operation and allowed us to add more functionality to our platform.
