Tim: “Lab49 are you listening?”
So a while ago Tim blogged “Lab49 are you listening?” Given that Tim’s posting was on the topic of Microsoft’s recently announced News Reader SDK, I’m expecting to see quite a few Lab49 WPF in Finance Innovation Contest applications based on the SDK 🙂 – possilbe a sure way to win a prize?
Further to Tim’s question, I’d actually counter with the question “Microsoft are you listening?” From where I sit in the buy/sell side Microosft still doesn’t get finance. In my view Microsoft should do the follow:
- Buy Lightstreamer and replace the server technology with .NET 🙂
- Offer panoption a substantial amount of money to build Silverlight versions of there visualization controls.
- Consider engaging a company/individual 😉 to build an on-line financial trading and web-delivery platform that can be market’d to the finanial community.
- To counter BEA’s Event Server, Microsoft should apply the same pattern to NEsper and offer a CEP engine – or even better build a CEP engine on LINQ.
Just my 2 cents 🙂
