Sybase and SL Corporation Partner to Deliver Unique Level of Visibility into the Trade Lifecyle for Capital Markets

Combined solution enables faster, smarter and safer trading decisions

Sybase, Inc. (NYSE: SY), the largest enterprise software and services company exclusively focused on managing and mobilizing information, today announced that it has partnered with SL Corporation®, a leading provider of real-time monitoring, analytics and visualization software, to deliver a solution that offers unique and customizable visibility into real-time and historical trading data for the financial services industry. The solution combines RAP – The Trading Edition™, Sybase’s recently launched next-generation market data analytics platform, with RTView™, SL’s business activity monitoring (BAM) platform enabling risk managers and quantitative analysts to make better trading and portfolio decisions with less risk through timelier, more holistic market insight.

In today’s rapidly moving financial services industry, capital market firms face increasing pressure to make faster, smarter and safer trading decisions while simultaneously dealing with the exponential growth in both market data volume and velocity. Quantitative analysts need to quickly identify market opportunities while risk managers must measure risk in real time, placing great pressure on trading systems to help them make instantaneous—and correct—decisions. As a result, capital market firms are demanding solutions that deliver interactive visibility for both the massive amounts of historical data, and the streaming real-time market and risk data, in a single view.

RAP – The Trading Edition and RTView have been certified to work together so customers can achieve immediate results. The solution is able to integrate massive amounts of historical trade and risk data, as well as real-time data feeds and complex event processing (CEP) streams. This unique and completely customizable view into real-time and historical data across the trade lifecycle provides quantitative analysts and risk managers with previously unachievable operational visibility.

“The capital markets industry is highly competitive. To predict price movements and act upon opportunities while mitigating risk, quantitative analysts and risk managers must compare time-critical market data in context with historical trends,” said Dr. Raj Nathan, Chief Marketing Officer at Sybase. “This combined solution delivers real-time opportunity and risk management via an interactive dashboard interface to allow sophisticated risk analysis pre- or post-trade, as well as allowing the development of more refined and risk-aware algorithms.”

“Capital market firms can immediately benefit from this integrated platform combining low-latency response times and fast access to massive historical data stores with a comprehensive BAM platform that provides instinctive context to the data,” said Tom Lubinski, President and CEO of SL Corporation. “Leveraging the sub-second performance and customizability of RTView, and the high-volume, high-velocity data management of RAP, capital market firms can make optimized trading and portfolio decisions with less risk through timelier, more comprehensive market insight.”

The combination of RAP – The Trading Edition and RTView will allow the development of custom applications that can provide:

  • Support for real-time capture and storage of market data enabling:
      -- Model development and execution in minutes vs. hours
-- Back-testing of algorithms against years of detailed market data
  • Support for pre-trade analytics including:
      -- Pricing and order generation
-- Order book aggregation
-- Liquidity monitoring
  • Support for post-execution information flow to:
      -- Evaluate efficacy of trading strategies
-- Monitor P&L and risk at the trade book and portfolio level

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...

Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.
