Rencontre OFF - Data - ENG

Event Details

Finance Montreal is pleased to invite you to this Rencontre OFF Forum FinTech on anaging and using large quantities of market data.

There is a new gold rush to access data that would have been too complex to analyze before the promises of AI and machine learning. But how is this mountain of data made usable? How do you cope with both the quantity and diversity of data?

***Presentation will be given in English but you can ask questions and receive answers in French***

About Francis Wenzel: Seasoned financial data & technology executive and entrepreneur with 30 years of experience. In 2011, TickSmith founders saw an opportunity to work with a set of historical data at a scale, which was not being actively explored at the time. But how do you take 370 Terabytes of market data in various formats, make it usable, and easily distribute it to users that include hedge funds and trading applications? Coming from the industry, the TickSmith founders knew that this problem was not a unique use case and that every financial institution that produces or consumes data eventually has to face that very issue. No traditional technology could scale terabytes of financial data so the team looked to the latest advancements in big data technology to finally build a full stack on top of Hadoop. TickVault was born and first put in service in late 2013.
