About this event

SPEAKER: Sal Sferrazza, Cloud Solutions Architect @ Google

Two years after the Flash Crash of 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission voted to approve a National Market System plan to create, implement, and maintain a consolidated audit trail (CAT) for the US stock markets. After a five year request-for-proposal process, in March of 2017, the firm Thesys was selected to be the technology provider among three finalists. In January of 2019, the CAT organization announced that Thesys was being released as plan processor for the CAT and that efforts were being taken over by FINRA, the administrator of the incumbent OATS system.

Hear about the CAT saga from one of the architects for FIS and Google's joint finalist bid, covering a bit of market history and a peek into the plumbing of the complex technical landscape that is the U.S. National Market System.

With a history of building systems for the financial services industry, Sal brings a pragmatic philosophy and broad expertise to technology teams with ambitious objectives. Prior to Google, his efforts as lead architect for FIS's Consolidated Audit Trail finalist bid saw him championing secure public cloud solutions for a post-trade market surveillance repository referred to by CNBC as the “biggest database in the world”. As Solution Architect for Google’s Cloud Platform, he helps Wall Street deploy its systems safely into the public cloud.

Anyone interested in Financial Services Technology, Big Data or Google Cloud Platform should attend.
