Speed and accessibility are the key benefits most often talked about when promoting the TT® platform. But what is less frequently highlighted is the infrastructure and support structure that keep operations moving smoothly. That responsibility falls on Mike Mayhew, CIO at Trading Technologies. In this edition of “Five Questions with…,” we talk with Mike about his team and the behind-the-scenes work that goes into making the TT platform dependable and secure.
Brian Mehta, CMO
What is the scope of your responsibilities as TT’s CIO?
Mike: My responsibilities span global trading platform operations and support, security and corporate IT. Corporate IT is a well-oiled machine, so typically when I talk about my responsibilities, I focus on trading platform operations and support. In other words, my teams are responsible for the overall availability of TT’s production trading environments. In fact, about 99% of our efforts—whether infrastructure design, change management, security audits or day-to-day ops—are focused on ensuring users have a fast, secure and reliable trading experience.
