Learning from best practices - How can exchanges etsblish their best technological fit?
After the success of the 2008 Pre-conference workshop focusing on "Setting up derivatives exchanges" the AFM decided to organize an IT-based pre-conference workshop to preceed the 2009 Annual Conference in Budapest.
The purpose of the workshop is to educate and provide up-to-date technological information for exchanges and participants in the Emerging Markets exchange business community. The agenda is supposed to deliver the key information needed when deciding upon the implementation of a suitable IT solution. Several case studies will facilitate the sharing of experiences and the identification of the best fit for your own market.
