Joining a large group of banks, exchanges and other financial enterprises, as well as vendors that supply them with key technology and services.


Beeks is excited to become a member of the STAC Benchmark Council™. The council has two missions: to develop and promote the use of standard technology benchmarks for workloads strategically important to financial organisations; and to facilitate substantive dialog about important engineering challenges and emerging solutions for them.

The STAC Benchmark Council conducts regular STAC Summits to discuss the latest technical solutions for the business challenges facing financial firms. The next Global STAC Live Summit is taking place virtually on 18th – 19th May 2021. Head of Product Management at Beeks, Matt Cretney, will present at this year’s event in the Innovation Roundup on the topic of “Trading Analytics and Infrastructure: Blue Sky between the Clouds?”

“Beeks is committed to bringing the agility, transparency and global reach of the cloud to financial markets, without requiring a sacrifice of latency, security or visibility”, said Matt. “We’re excited to support the efforts of STAC to bring more transparency and rigour to the challenges that financial firms face in these areas.”
