Simplifying Market Tick Data Management
Investment banks are in a fiercely competitive industry where the thinnest of margins separates success
and failure. In the modern technology-driven world, their choice of technologies is crucial to creating competitive
advantages and outpacing the market, separating winners from the rest.
This paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a market tick
data management system, what database requirements the Line of Business (LoBs) should look into, and how
the database can be used to provide high throughput and resilience with low latency. By selecting the right
database technology for market tick data management, FSIs can unlock financial market trends, reduce complexity,
increase reliability, and provide always-on applications for global based users.
