Financial services execs and Red Hat talk cloud at The Trading Show in Chicago.

This week, IT and business executives from investment and trading firms are gathering in Chicago for The Trading Show Chicago 2015. There are plenty of presentations, roundtables, panels, and networking during the two-day conference, and attendees are hearing all about how to innovate using big data, exchange technology, cloud computing, and more.

Red Hat is there too. I have the privilege today of moderating a panel of financial services executives who will share their experiences and provide insights on how to maximize investments in cloud technologies. I’ll be asking these executives just how the financial services industry is taking advantage of modern cloud technologies, what gains are being made, and what challenges still exist.

On the panel, we are scheduled to be joined by:

  • David Rukshin, chief technology officer, WorldQuant   WorldQuant is a private institutional investment management complex consisting of an international team of researchers, traders and technologists.
  • Tim Hundt, senior enterprise architect, GE Capital   GE Capital offers commercial lending and leasing, consumer financing, and financial services in energy, aviation and real estate markets.
  • Adam Honore, CEO, MarketsTech   MarketsTech is a vertical markets technology advisory firm providing strategic advice and guidance to companies.

I’ll recap what the panelists shared in a subsequent blog, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, tell us your own experiences and insights on how investment and trading firms can reap the benefits of cloud computing in the comments section below.
