Equities Trading & The Cloud: A Webinar Series | Part 1
Pre-Migration Strategy Formation
The first installment of Equities Trading & The Cloud presents insights from the beginning of Instinet’s journey to AWS with Risk Focus. “There’s less debate, more experimentation,” says Instinet CTO Minor Huffman on the advantages of moving to the cloud, “less supposition, more data.” A FinTech pioneer, Instinet has launched a cloud-migration initiative with Risk Focus that aims to harness AWS’s higher-level offerings such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. As the panelists discuss, getting to the cloud offers opportunities to enrich the product offerings of financial services organizations. It also requires a sound technology strategy and a thorough understanding of the unique business problems each organization faces.
