  • Reducing Software Licensing Costs in Virtual & Cloud Infrastructure with Smarter VM Placements

  • Most organizations that license software such as Windows, SQL Server and Oracle on a per processor or per host basis are spending far more than is required on licensing. Because VM placements are typically driven by basic utilization criteria, and not more sophisticated business or technical policies, these software components tend to spread randomly across physical servers, necessitating a large licensing footprint. This creates an opportunity to save in excess of 50% of existing costs, but achieving this requires a fundamental shift in how VM placements are managed within virtual environments. Join CiRBA CTO & co-founder Andrew Hillier to learn how to contain licenses and control costs with predictive analytics that profile workloads to optimize placements by both:

  • Enabling High-Performance Trading Alpha: Beyond Low Latency to Sustained Performance

  • As global financial markets become more interconnected and diverse, trading environments are increasingly dynamic and responsive to real-time conditions.

  • Creating an Integrated View: Incorporating MDM Technology into a Legal Entity Identifier Solution

  • The lack of a standard identification system for financial counterparties makes it difficult for financial firms to develop a consistent and integrated view of their exposures, such as in the case of default of counterparty. This is a challenge not only for firms, but also creates an obstacle for regulators to aggregate and share information to effectively monitor risks. A robust Master Data Management (MDM) solution helps financial institutions implement Legal Entity Identifiers in order to better understand their business and better respond to regulations, like Dodd-Frank.

  • Real-Time Transactional Scoring: How to Do it Better, Faster with Less Expense

  • Business growth is attained by attracting new customers and expanding your footprint with existing customers though a combination of cross-selling and up-selling new products and services. This growth must be balanced with the capability to improve fraud detection and deliver better customer service. Maximizing growth while limiting exposure to fraud requires insight into all customer interactions as they are happening so those interactions can be applied to today's interaction with historical behavioral patterns to determine the best course of action for right now. Today, many customers are exploring the possibility of scoring their data in real-time but are unable to proceed due to the technical limitations of how the scoring of new transactional data must be handled. Being dependent on a real-time web services call/response can result in much higher costs, not to mention the possible impact to service levels with network bandwidth limitations. By incorporating the scoring algorithms directly within the transactional application, you will have better insight into customer behavior at the point of interaction — at a price point you can afford.

  • HFT Under Attack: Using Big Data to Find New Trading Correlations and Opportunities

  • High-frequency trading (HFT) has been in the spotlight recently as market participants have debated the value of HFT for investors. While only a certain number of players compete at the ultra-low latency level, many other players are taking advantage of technologies utilizing models and strategies that leverage new data sets as well as more types of information. For instance, many firms are using Big Data technologies, coupled with complex event processing (CEP) and in-memory data analytics engines to uncover new trading opportunities. Big Data, which collects and brings in various newer types of data such as mobile tracking data and web search histories, can help traders and portfolio managers uncover the next trend or up and coming company. But how can market participants take advantage of Big Data without increasing latency or breaking the bank. Join Ivy Schmerken, editor-at-large for Wall Street & Technology, Dushyant Shahrawat, senior analyst at TowerGroup, and SAP/Sybase for an editorial webcast that will focus on the opportunities when it comes using Big Data in a trading strategy.
