How can analytics benefit capital markets?

25th Jul 2023

Capital markets are increasingly leveraging cloud and virtual technology to deliver cost efficiencies, implementation agility, greater security and ease of governance.

The added advantage of cloud tech for financial firms migrating from legacy environments is the on-demand availability of a burgeoning amount of data from multiple sources, sites and platforms. In turn this is driving ever more centralised data management strategies.

Coupled with sophisticated network connectivity, ultra-low latency compute and the narrowing gap in the finance sector between money-making business processes and the underpinning infrastructure, the ability to monitor and analyse data flows is becoming paramount.

Here is how Analytics as a Service benefits capital markets organisations:


Analytics enables greater transparency and visibility of network traffic and performance, meaning issues can be quickly identified and resolutions sought. In contrast to legacy environments virtual and cloud platforms monitor and flag activity on their networks, and generate telemetry data which isn’t generally available in traditional on-prem infrastructure.

Real-time tracking

Analytics technology monitors and analyses the real-time performance and network activity of all prices, quotes, trades as they traverse business critical processes.

Precision timing

As financial platforms operate ultra-low latency compute environments Analytics enable businesses to continually monitor transmissions and be alerted of lags and delays which may impact trading performance and profitability.

Unified, integrated view

As the complexity of data flows from multiple sources and sites increases, Analytics can help to aggregate data into a single, unified view, and generate accurate and targeted insights about actions to be taken on different areas of the network, including at the level of switches.


Not only does Analytics have the flexibility to monitor across different sites and sources, it also features multiple measuring points within a given network.

In addition as a ready-made service in the cloud firms can avail of analytics technology as a flexible adjunct to their infrastructure, whatever combination of colocation and cloud environment they are using.

Better performance

Actionable insights flagged through Analytics’ alerts, gap detections, drill downs and visualised telemetry enable performance improvements, better capacity usage, and reductions in costly lags and delays as issues are avoided.

Continuous improvement

Analytics enables enhanced testing and trouble-shooting by supporting the recording and replay of high volumes of market data. This allows measurement of how the infrastructure will keep pace with the expected flow rates and associated business activity of the organisation. Any bottle-necks caused by inefficiencies can adversely affect the trading position and profitability. Analytics enables continuous improvement to ensure the prevention of this type of service issue.

On-demand agility

Cloud and virtual technology means Analytics as a Service is available on-demand, immediately and affordably to firms who wish to gain greater insights into business and telemetry data, and what they can do to improve their operation.
