The London Stock Exchange (LSE) has joined forces with Microsoft and Accenture to develop and launch a market data access system.
The system is based on the .NET framework and hosted on a Microsoft Windows Server.
Developed and implemented by Accenture, the solution consumes trading data from 350 firms and publishes it in real-time. The application utilises a newly created corporate data warehouse that provides access to current and historical data.
David Lester, CIO, London Stock Exchange, says: "We wanted the capability to process at least 500 messages a second, the flexibility to broaden our product range to add value for our shareholders, and the peace of mind that we had a solution we could rely on."
