Lab49 is a leader in the industry for designing and building client-facing ecommerce platforms. Many of these systems include real-time aggregated pricing streams, order management, trade execution, and risk management capabilities. Additionally, our solutions have included market research, trade commentary, and social media to provide a comprehensive view of the market.
Lab49 has built several demonstrations of reference architectures that feature various technologies and patterns that would satisfy the needs of a modern ecommerce business. These technologies include hardware accelerated messaging, public/private clouds, and streaming technologies. Our demonstrations utilize hardware appliances as an interesting move away from a software internet push solution to improve scalability, reduce ‘last mile’ message latency, and reduce the systems complexity. The user experience of these applications are delivered using plug-in RIAs (Flex/Silverlight) or browser RIA (HTML5), powered by various push streaming technologies, and server software patterns such as agent-actor architecture.
Functionally, the demonstrations illustrate how Request for Quote (RFQ), Request for Stream (RFS), execution and content distribution can be delivered using these technologies and patterns.
