GFT and Google to demonstrate Google Cloud Spanner at event later this month

GFT and Google are delighted to be hosting an event entitled ‘Google Cloud Spanner – A revolution for Financial Services’ later this month in London. Taking place on Thursday 28th September at the Google Academy from 08:15 – 10:45 BST, the event provides an exciting opportunity witness at first-hand a demonstration of this new revolutionary technology.

Recent developments in cloud-based data technology points to the beginning of a step change in the delivery of efficient, scalable technology within financial services. With the launch of Google Cloud Spanner, banks can now harness horizontal and globally scalable data stores across their entire trading business, creating dramatic improvements in cost-efficiency, resilience and the ability to manage complex global trading needs.

Google Cloud Spanner engineers will be unveiling the full capabilities of the new service, whilst GFT specialists will be demonstrating real-life use cases using Google Spanner, to dramatically transform how globally developed trading applications can be deployed for Client MIS, Risk, P&L and reporting across asset classes such as Equities, FX, FI and Commodities.

Google Cloud Spanner offers a cost-effective approach to managing worldwide scalable data for the world’s largest financial institutions and this event will deliver great insights into the exciting opportunities this revolutionary technology can create.

GFT’s membership of Google’s Partner Programme allows GFT to deploy its distributed ledger test infrastructure for banks on Google’s Cloud Platform, helping global banking clients to simulate real-world distributed ledger models within a globally distributed and scalable test environment.
