Market Data: Applying SRE Techniques to Legacy Designs

Market Data is the lifeblood of financial applications. Real-time ticker plants must distribute billions of updates per day quickly and robustly, with latency tightly correlated with business performance. Due to the criticality of the platform and associated risk aversion, ticker plants evolve slowly, and are behind on modern operational techniques. This talk will convey Goldman Sachs’s key lessons learned while implementing a ticker plant in a cloud environment, including how we increased the number of failure domains, and the techniques we found most useful when overlaying observability.

George Brighton, VP, Goldman Sachs

3:30 - 4:15 p.m.

Panel: The Shared Costs of Administering Data IP. Is There a Standard For All?

All stake holders involved in managing licensed market data are required to maintain stringent controls and report access or usage to the licensing party. What are the common problems that exist across trading venues, data vendors and data consumers? In this panel discussion, we will explore the key issues the industry is faced with, along with highlighting what opportunities exist for data producers and consumers to develop new practices that can optimize the administrative burden shared by all, whilst continuing to improve data compliance.
