Transaction Monitoring

Transaction monitoring

As electronic trading increasingly dominates financial markets, keeping track of transactional activity becomes a challenge. In order to stay competitive, financial institutions must make sure their technology can cope with ever-larger trade volumes at low latencies, whilst also ensuring costs do not balloon.

ITRS’ transaction monitoring solution gives end-to-end visibility of the trade lifecycle and volumes, enabling organisations to quantify the health and performance of mission-critical trading systems.

Challenges

Financial institutions today are tasked with developing, testing, deploying and running a myriad of interconnected applications, which are highly distributed. 

Organisations face a big data explosion and must grapple with large real-time flows of data from applications, servers, network devices and logs.

Meanwhile, customers of financial services expect a bare minimum of downtime and high responsiveness of applications.
