Debating data strategies: Stormy clouds and the evolving ways hedge funds are handling an information deluge

Discussion points include:

– Cost-effective strategies for combining on-premises capabilities with various cloud options and debating the pros and cons of leveraging services offered by cloud providers versus internal builds. What other services or offers are valuable on the cloud?
– Debating the economics of moving research and back-testing workloads and other data tasks to the cloud. What are the hurdles? How much of this is dependent on a firm’s current operational infrastructure and the volume of information being analyzsed and consumed? At what point do various options become more economically viable?
– Given the growth of data and sources, can you continue to build and scale without a cloud strategy?
– What hurdles have been eliminated so that hedge funds can do more in the cloud? What other barriers need to be reduced or eliminated for broader adoption?
