  • To continue the Visualization topic, which recently started, I’d like to share a small overview of useful visualization tools. Frankly speaking there are a huge amount of different tools. Some tools are more scientific, some are specialized for business purposes, some are expensive and the others are free. In this overview I’m going to tell you about the tools for users who want to save time and money by using free tools with simple and clear UIs.

  • How can I visualize it?

    04 December 2012
    By Yaroslav Kalinin, Senior Developer

    The first attempt to answer this question was made in 1832 while marking the distribution of cholera cases per unit of population on a map. This is considered to be also the first attempt to analyze data in the context of spatial location, and this is a starting point for understanding a Geographic Information System (GIS).

    For a long time the complexity of manual processing of a large amount of data limited the development of GIS, as well as any system essentially working with a huge array of data, but starting from 1960, with the introduction of computer graphics, the development of GIS picked up pace.

  • Highlights from SIFMA 2012 Annual Meeting

    04 December 2012
    By Alexei Miller, Managing Partner

    A must read for anyone following financial services industry, particularly those concerned by the perfect storm of regulatory requirements now battering this sector. One of important takeaways for us (confirmed by an SEC economist at a recent Waters USA conference) is that the opinions of market participants, from investors to buy side firms to brokers are welcome and are given serious consideration. While much of Dodd-Frank rules and other regulations are still being finalized, in this post-election world it is now clear that it is here to stay and everyone better get serious about it. More on that from Waters Technology: http://www.waterstechnology.com/waters/opinion/2227405/anthony-malakian-wait-and-see-no-more

  • Notes from Waters USA 2012 Conference

    04 December 2012
    By Alexei Miller, Managing Partner

    I attended this year’s Waters USA 2012 in New York and on the content side, it did not disappoint – the content and the panelists, many familiar faces among them, were fresh and at times funny, some truly original. However I felt that this time around, there were few people from the buy-side in the audience, which largely consisted of IT folks from large investments banks. While there were a few buy-side speakers, overall the program weighed heavier on the brokerage and banking world. Little that was said, however, applied well for the proverbial mid-size Asset Manager. It seems the Buy-Side Technology Summit, held in October, is a better fit.

  • The Science of Data Visualization

    03 December 2012
    By Vladimir Timashov, Project Manager

    All its history, mankind has been working with the data. And (as British scientists learned) since 70% of human brain is oriented for perception of visual information, the most complex and challenging task was visualization of this data. For centuries, scientists worked hard to create graphics of mathematical functions, charts to display trends and tendencies, maps of the continents and territories. Originally all those visualizations were created by hand on scraps of paper. Nowadays, when we have computers, more and more visualizations are created using information technologies. Visualizations become more complex displaying large amounts of data, being interactive and helping people to “talk” to this data.

    The science of Data Visualization tells us how to visualize the data in an effective and spectacular way. Visualizations are created in HealthCare, Finances, Social, and frankly speaking any industry may have the need of visual data analysis.
