Rick Lane, chief technology officer of Trading Technologies is overseeing a major overhaul of how Trading Technologies develops its solutions. In part 1 of this two-part video with JLN editor-in-chief Jim Kharouf, he talks about mobile trading trends, the legacy challenges for the futures industry and rebuilding Trading Technologies’ entire architecture — and how this will all come together. In Lane’s view, rethinking the way technology is built and delivered means finding a balance of buying existing software and combining it with new solutions, a departure from the firm that traditionally built everything in-house.
In part 2 of our interview (coming soon), Lane will talk about how Trading Technologies is addressing regulation and its technology, the move of OTC into futures markets, Trading Technologies Algo Design Lab’s growth and what’s next in the futures markets.
