Accelerate Market Data and Trade Execution
In the extremely time-sensitive spread betting business, one of the problems firms face is excessive latency between the incoming liquidity providers and pricing applications, risk applications and front end display systems. The latency introduced by hops between different environments and messaging technologies, across long distance WAN links, and by the inefficient routing of data, can add up to significant delays across trading, risk and quoting platforms. This can frustrate customers by causing them to miss short-lived trading opportunities and make them wait for confirmation of successful transactions. It can also introduce the risk of being victimized by trading bots that take advantage of brief periods of inconsistency to conduct latency arbitrage.
By single-handedly handling all information routing between applications and customers, including optimized distribution over WANs, Solace technology reduces latency and simplifies data flows so applications are always in sync and customers get extremely responsive service and confirmations.
