big xyt: market data as a service
Market data and analytics, wherever and whenever you need it
No trading firm can operate without access to the latest market data. But building and maintaining data storage and analytics capabilities in house can be challenging and costly; and older software often struggles to cope with the massive amounts of data available today.
big xyt offers an alternative: market data and analytics delivered as a fully managed service. A specialist data and analytics company, big xyt has more than 10 years’ experience of managing large data sets in business-critical applications for the financial industry. In return for a subscription, trading firms have immediate and cost-effective access to all the real-time and historical data they need, in raw or normalised format, via the big xyt cloud. A remotely supported on-premises solution is also available.
Already working with a wide range of market data providers, big xyt can onboard any data a firm relies on; and offers data crunching and analytics capabilities on top. Firms that choose big xyt for market data will free up time otherwise spent on data management, enabling their teams to focus on trading model development and other strategic activities.
Trading firms can access big xyt services using a simple cross-connect to Colt’s financial extranet, Colt PrizmNet, which offers the deterministic low latencies that are critical to the consumption of real-time data. The presence of Colt’s infrastructure in key trading locations makes it quick and seamless for firms to connect to Colt PrizmNet; and enables big xyt to deliver solutions across multiple data vendors and asset classes to its clients, wherever and whenever they need them.
