Software Test Tools

Tools exist to support software testing at all stages of a project. Some vendors offer an integrated suite that will support testing and development throughout a project's life, from gathering requirements to supporting the live system. Some vendors concentrate on a single part of that life cycle. The software test tools knowledge base provides functional criteria you might expect from a testing tool, the infrastructure that supports the tool, and an idea of the market position of the vendor.

The Advantages of Enabling Order Execution in Hardware


The increasing volume of orders, pervasiveness of algorithmic trading systems and customer demand for lower latency are outpacing the capabilities of the software- and server-based systems sell-side firms use to do process trades in financial markets globally.
