Cloud and Data Lakes: What's the Impact on Business Models and Policies?

Commercial models need to change.  The days of pricing by screens, eyeballs, symbol and bandwidth look a lot less relevant.  How will market data commercial models and data policies change?

  • What commercial / packaging changes can we expect that will enable institutional consumers to populate “data lakes” with market data?
  • How will data vendors change the way that they sell/dispense market data to reflect the transformation?
  • Will the "data lake" concept create an opportunity for market data vendor displacement and/or fragmentation? 
  • Will market data policies like "non-display" and "derived data"  be "cloud-ified" with "ingress" and "egress" policies?
