Posted on 05/26/10 10 Comments

It is pretty clear to most everyone that high frequency trading (HFT) destroys market integrity.

Real-Time, Online and Offline Complex Event Processing

Posted on 02/08/09 No Comments

Using NIST as computer science reference, an online algorithm is an algorithm that processes data (including events) element-by-element (and event-by-event), serially without having the entire problem space available from the beginning.  In contrast, an offline algorithm is provided the entire problem set from the start. Hence, real-time event processing applications generally involve online processing.  Offline processing is useful when creating [...]
