TickSmith Corp. announced today that its Big Data platform now delivers comprehensive historical intraday and end-of-day trading data to Scivantage Investor™, the firm’s next-generation online brokerage solution. TickSmith's Big Data solution optimizes the TICKS by SIX data sourced from SIX Financial Information, giving Scivantage’s clients a powerful set of tools for charting and portfolio calculations on behalf of its investment clients.
“TickSmith’s Big Data platform transforms and prepares huge data sets, such as the massive amounts of historical trade and quote data from SIX, for seamless integration with the Scivantage platform,” said TickSmith CEO Francis Wenzel. “Because our platform is a turnkey solution that meets Scivantage’s unique requirements, all they had to do was to integrate the optimized data to their new platform.”
“With the launch of our enhanced web brokerage platform, we wanted to improve data visualization, intra-day charting and portfolio views. While that process sounds fairly straightforward, it requires large amounts of data that needs to be normalized and adjusted," said Chris Psaltos, VP of Product Management at Scivantage. "TickSmith has helped streamline that operation and allowed us to add more functionality to our platform."
TICKS by SIX comprises global equities, bonds, indices, forex, and derivatives sourced from more than 1,500 providers, including global exchanges and alternative liquidity pools. With quote and trade data dating back to mid-2007, TICKS by SIX is one of the broadest and deepest trade and data repositories available today.
TickSmith adds even more value to TICKS by SIX through pre-processing that delivers adjusted data, rollups, synthetic millisecond timestamps, calculated fields and more. TickSmith makes data available in normalized and client-specific formats via files, web tools and APIs.

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
