How Exchanges and Data Providers are Prioritizing Cloud and AI for Internal Insights

In this webinar, we will review the latest trends on how exchanges, trading systems and data providers use cloud and AI to produce data insights for their own consumption.

This will be followed by a fireside chat of industry leaders.

Topics covered will include: Current focus areas – internal insight workloads (e.g., data transmission, processing, analysis and long-term storage) vs. internal services (e.g., monitoring and surveillance). Planned public cloud workloads for the next 12 months – data mining, data insights, advanced analytics, and building a multicloud foundation on public cloud AI/ML plans for the next 12 months – faster analytics, risk reviews, and data quality maintenance
