  • “Relying on legacy messaging solutions in today’s capital markets is a clear path to non-competitiveness,” said John Ryan, chief architect, Direct Edge. “It’s imperative to look for the best possible latency coupled with enterprise-class scalability and reliability and a superior vision for the future of low-latency. This is what makes Informatica such a standout solution. Having looked at a number of messaging technologies, both hardware and software, Informatica, using commodity hardware, consistently outperformed the others without the need for proprietary, restrictive and unproven hardware appliances.”
