Datawatch Whitepaper: Visual Data Discovery and Complex Event Processing in Capital Markets Applications

    Analysts, traders and managers in Capital Markets firms must make sense of the massive amounts of data at their disposal and make decisions supported by the facts. They need to use information gleaned from historical databases and take realtime market activity into account. Because of their ability to be reconfigured quickly, CEP engines offer an excellent tool for analysts to use in developing their conclusions. OLAP-enabled visual data analysis tools allow them to slice and dice the data generated by the CEP engine along with large volumes of time series data (like tick data) and complete their analysis quickly, thereby allowing them to make well-informed and timely decisions for the benefit of the firm and its investors.
