Last Thursday we held a fascinating and topical webinar focusing on why Knight Capital lost $440 million in 40 minutes and what they could have done to prevent this incident.
The webinar ‘A Rogue Application Release Can Cost $440 Million – Case Study from Wall Street’ was led by Fred Voccola, a technical expert in the financial services industry. He explored the potentially astronomical costs of failing to adopt application release automation in today’s complex trading environments. Taking Knight Capital as a case study, he examined the internal and external pressures leading up to this event and the lessons we can all take from it.
“Knight avoided bankruptcy, which it was truly on the brink of…It begs the question: how does it happen and how do we prevent it going forward?
