San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
This year, Americans choose a new president, and the capital markets choose their future. Innovation and disruption have been constant themes in finance over the past few years, but now we finally see fundamental transformation occurring. Once only a choice for a small segment of market participants, enhanced security, operations and economics have made the cloud a logical choice for the entire industry. It is clear that blockchain will mature more quickly than expected, and many blockchain solutions already are out there – but which ones will succeed? And as the capital markets continue to look for cost savings, utilities will fundamentally challenge the data and services choices available across the Street. Meanwhile, the impact of regulation marches on, in the form of MiFID II and the CAT. Fortunately, as the industry looks to respond to ongoing challenges, human hypothesis analytics are being replaced by machine learning to help show us the way. TABB Group and industry experts will examine these developments and more at MarketTech 2016. The future is now.

Sean will discuss how CIA views innovation and disruption. He will discuss how CIA views disruptive technology trends and explain how he and his team are harnessing some of these technologies to create newer, leaner and more innovative solutions to issues such as big data, streaming analytics and cyber security.
