A year later, some challenges still remain, reports SS&C Technologies. The main dilemma isn’t in redistributing the data, but rather incorporating the data at the trading desk level, with data overload being a real concern. “This new source of information is proving to be difficult for the market to absorb,” SS&C reports. “Both buy-side and sell-side traders are working to incorporate the information into their market data resources, along with research, analytics, communications and electronic trading capabilities.” Experts predict that once the market does absorb and start using the data, creative ways to use that information will occur.
