“Nasdaq’s Technology of the Future Conference is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for our network of market infrastructure operators to connect, collaborate and learn from one another,” said Roland Chai, EVP, Head of Market Platforms at Nasdaq. “Our Conference sessions will focus on key trends impacting market infrastructure operators today – including navigating digital transformation, managing ecosystem disruption and the evolving regulatory landscape. As a technology partner and exchange operator, it is imperative that we are able to successfully navigate digital transformation – and it is our job to guide our clients as they embark on their own digital transformation journeys. We are thrilled to bring this group together to discuss how we can shape the capital markets of tomorrow.”
As the market landscape continues to evolve, market infrastructure operators will need to be able to react to the changing market landscape and adapt to clients’ needs. In the years to come, they will all need to evaluate how to navigate business transformation in order to accelerate innovation and business opportunities. As a technology partner, Nasdaq is here to ensure that they can do so successfully.
For 50 years, Nasdaq has reimagined markets to realize the potential of tomorrow. Over 130 market infrastructure clients rely upon Nasdaq for their core trading, clearing, settlement, and surveillance technology. In November 2021, Nasdaq announced its partnership with AWS to develop viable cloud choices that include public-cloud and hybrid models. This year, Nasdaq plans to migrate its North American markets to AWS in a phased approach, starting with Nasdaq MRX, a U.S. options market. The Exchange expects this migration to the cloud to enable the adoption of new services and products in a manner that unlocks value and provides its clients with added flexibility.
