Lightstreamer has been deployed by Alpha Theory to deliver live data to their Web-based front-end.
Alpha Theory is a patent-pending tool, originally designed by a hedge fund, to address the challenges of developing and maintaining an efficient portfolio utilizing expected return. Lightstreamer handles not only the delivery of real-time data from the Financial Markets but also will stream real-time updates between Alpha Theory users.
Lightstreamer is the leading push server for live data distribution based on the Ajax-Comet paradigm (also known as "AJAX Push"). Its server component implements a messaging system based on http that can manage thousands of streaming connections, where data is pushed to the many types of client (Ajax, Flex, Java, .Net, Mobile etc) in a real asynchronous fashion.
"We selected Lightstreamer because it was the clear choice to provide a scalable feature-rich push solution. No other product comes close to matching Lightstreamer's combination of features and affordability to ensure our users are getting the latest market data delivered in real-time to their browser," says Cameron Hight, President of Alpha Theory.
