TickSmith was founded in 2012 by industry experts to address a problem that affects all participants in Capital Markets: efficiently working with constantly growing mountains of financial data.
To do so we had a technical insight: big data technology, such as Hadoop and its ecosystem, should be the key! This is how it all started!
Today, TickSmith delivers comprehensive data management systems to industry leaders.
TickSmith is headquartered in Montreal and is also present in New York and Toronto.
With our financial market expertise and our strong knowledge of leading-edge technologies, we bring the next generation of data management and analytical tools to financial institutions.
With our tools, financial institutions focus on their business and not on data integration. With better and faster insight, correlations, predictive analytics and reporting capabilities our clients can work more efficiently, reduce their risk and exploit unforeseen opportunities in their data.
The inspiration for our name
Tick – (noun) Stock Exchange – a movement in the price of a stock. The smallest possible tick on a given exchange.
Smith – (noun) A worker in metal.
TickSmith captures the power and skill of the craftmen who have to work with a difficult medium. Big Data, like many metals, can be precious and becomes even more valuable when it is crafted into useful objects.
The original logo was inspired by our name and represents us crunching staggering amounts of market data.
