Back-Office Trade Monitoring – Reference Architecture White Paper

White Paper

A common need in trade monitoring platforms is to provide a live feed of individual trading actions and to enrich this view with collated information derived from these actions, such as trade volume since market opening. The challenge is that back-office teams specializing in finance, risk, and compliance typically do not have sufficient financial and human resources to deploy large-scale, complex, real-time trade monitoring solutions.

This reference architecture paper describes an efficient and cost-effective solution using the Hazelcast Platform to ingest, index, and store stock trading data for fast querying. Back-office analysts responsible for financial analysis, risk assessment, and regulatory compliance get greater visibility into trades in a real-time and near-real-time manner without the expense and complexity of a front-office system built on databases and data warehouses running on massive hardware.
