The EDF Forum provides the opportunity for Wall Street industry leaders to gather and discuss the unique data management challenges within the financial services industry, as well as new technologies available to solve these issues. Volatile market conditions, surging data volumes and low latency requirements are placing tremendous challenges on applications such as trading, risk analysis and market data management. As organizations continuously seek advanced methods to manage increasingly complex sources and streams of data, an information-centric strategy anchored to an Enterprise Data Fabric (EDF) is vital to combat these issues and build a robust technology infrastructure.
The panelist will address:
The characteristics of an EDF and its relevance to todayâs capital markets
Types of data to be managed, distribution of data, real-time analysis and high availability of data with an EDF
The crucial role of an EDF in front, middle and back-office operations
Shankar Iyer, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Strategy for GemStone Systems, will moderate the panel.
