How Trading Technologies leveraged OpenFin and the web platform to build the most performant front end in the industry.
The following is a guest post authored by Nicholas Kolba, CTO at OpenFin. With 19+ years in software development, Nick has focused on bringing web and open source technologies into finance for a majority of his career—much of it at Thomson Reuters working on the Eikon platform.
OpenFin is the financial industry’s first common operating layer, enabling rapid and secure deployment, native experience and desktop interoperability. The world’s largest banks and trading platforms use OpenFin to deploy desktop applications both in-house, and to their buy-side and sell-side customers. With Trading Technologies’ new TT Desktop, TT adopted the OpenFin platform to deliver an HTML5-based trading application on par with the performance of their legacy C++ application.
At OpenFin, we were blown away when we saw what TT has achieved with their new TT Desktop. The application, which scales to 16 monitors of low-latency data presentation, dispels all previously held industry conceptions about HTML5 performance.
