How Euronext is Utilizing Real-Time Data to Become a “Data Trader”
Following its split from the New York Stock Exchange in 2014, Euronext became the first pan-European exchange in the eurozone, fusing together the stock markets of Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, and Paris.
Euronext uses Optiq, an incredible trading platform, which is the active memory of 100 TB transactions, with systems that practically work in nanoseconds. But for analytics, sometimes Euronext had to wait six to twelve hours after market close on days with important events before they could send the data to business units and clients. Also, Euronext’s storage needs continued to grow, especially following several acquisitions and with regulators, expecting that Euronext store more and more data.
Migrating to a Governed Cloud
Euronext chose Talend Big Data to absorb real-time data in an AWS data lake, including internal data from its own trading platform and external data, such as from Reuters and Bloomberg. In an ultra-regulated world, Talend Data Catalog has also proven to be highly adept at meeting the challenges of data lake governance and regulatory compliance.
Making the Most of Stock Market Data
Beyond the improved architecture, the migration is also positioning Euronext to become a “data trader.” In fact, the sale of data already brings in 20% of Euronext’s revenues. Traders actually sell, buy, and make their investment decisions in milliseconds. They have a huge appetite for aggregated data in real time.
In addition to clients, this project also involves giving data scientists and business units self-service access to this data, which they can analyze in data sandboxes for tasks such as market monitoring.
