it’s crucial to make the right choices when setting up your DSE cloud infrastructure. But how can you know which instance types will give you the best cost-to-benefit ratio, both now and as your business grows? That’s where benchmarking helps. For our paper, we conducted DSE stress tests on an array of hardware configurations, and we simulated various real-world workflows, all to see which EC2 instance types deliver the best performance at the lowest costs.
The digital financial services world has created an amplified set of challenges for the data center and network. Its role in enabling the success of the wider institution has become even more critical, but to deliver this it needs to provide a higher level of performance with increased agility, while maintaining high levels of efficiency and security.
This is forcing institutions to transform their underlying IT capabilities, with the need to simplify the network, obtain more flexible connectivity, automate IT operations, and enable centralized control and administration being core strategies in this respect. As shown in Figure 8, this is driving a number of requirements for the future network. Key considerations for financial institutions in architecture design and vendor selection should be around moving toward a software-defined, intelligent, cloud-ready, and open network that enables the institution to meet its ICT imperatives and achieve these key ICT strategies.
The ongoing success of 7ticks depends on having an IT infrastructure that adapts and scales to unforgiving reliability, performance, and transparency requirements. To support the torrid growth of data, 7ticks needed to expand the IP/MPLS network connecting its data centers to 40 Gbps—and have an immediate path to 100 Gbps and beyond. Within its data centers, 7ticks needed network and security solutions that would keep pace—and would simplify service management and support automation.
“Our biggest challenge is performance at scale,” says Scott Caudell, founder of the 7ticks business and vice president of IT infrastructure at Interactive Data. “IT is our business. The 7ticks infrastructure helps customers get a lower time to market and faster execution speeds at a cost that’s sustainable for their businesses.”
The impact of cloud computing and software-defined networking (SDN), including network virtualization, has convinced large enterprises and customers building private, public, and hybrid cloud networks to consider new approaches to help them meet their current and future data center switching needs. Data center switching platforms are constantly evolving, delivering increasingly better performance while simplifying network operations.

Procurement organizations are moving in substantial numbers to implement integrated technology suites in areas like
source-to-contract and purchase-to-pay. A new generation of technology has made it possible for these technologies
to move to the cloud, simplifying maintenance and administration. A recent Hackett Group study analyzed the use
of e-sourcing suites to uncover trends, benefits and drawbacks to unifying these processes in one solution. For
organizations already invested in optimizing sourcing execution efforts, the arguments for moving to an integrated
suite are compelling.

“Convergex takes a great deal of pride in making its clients’ interests and service needs of top priority,” says CIO Ann Neidenbach. “We like to tackle the industry’s toughest challenges—from complex trades to complex business solutions. Since regulation changes in 2008, there’s been a proliferation of places to trade. In the US alone, there are over 50 light pool (LIT) and dark markets. This makes it incredibly expensive, complicated, and very difficult for our customers to find best execution. They’re seeking liquidity and trying to figure out the best place to fill their orders. We’re trying to simplify that for them. “Convergex historically had consisted of several different affiliated companies, which meant that we had silos of trading systems, technology solutions and data. As a result, it was difficult to understand the revenue and profitability for each client across our businesses.” “My number one objective is to help us improve operational efficiencies, and I’m doing that in
