QuoteOriginally posted by: SierpinskyJanitorFair enough capafan2 apologies for my disgruntled reply as well but do avoid those far-fetched generalizations. As a very enthusiastic IT amateur that I am, must tell you that some banks do have mouthwatering technology, absolutely miraculous systems which are far beyond anything else any other industry creates. This is based on my own personal experience, I am not BSingU nor generalizing. The bank in the news today, for example, has the most sophisticated Globally Synchronized Functional/OO Risk platform ever built. Kept running, around the clock,24x7 by a team of 5000 pros (IT, Quant and DBA) - it´s called SecDb.cheers and all the best,SerpThere are other banks that are now creating the next generation SecDB. Alot of ex-Goldman Core Strat folks moved to this bank to create it. It will become your favorite mineral...
