To develop this system, we had to understand the business issues: how traders and risk managers work, how they analyze information, what options for displaying data will be most relevant. Therefore we studied a lot of additional information about the trading market in order to meet the condition of dashboard flexibility.
It’s also important to understand mathematical models and methods of mathematical analysis to check it in conjunction with the business.
The last challenge was to integrate trading company data with the system. The system has two data sources: the market and the company. It took us a long time to choose a good provider that could quickly deliver data in a convenient format. We were also looking for the right format to integrate data from within the company. The information from both sources needs to be integrated correctly in order to make calculations in the most efficient and fastest way possible. All in all, agreeing on the data format took a lot of time.
