Jim and Don will review the new open technical standards process implemented by the community.

Jim plans to review the innovations that emanated from the Chicago proprietary trading community since the 1980s. These include the adoption of open systems (Unix based) platforms within Finance, the use of C and C++, the adoption of agile software methodology, and even a life line to a Steve Jobs before he transitioned back to Apple Computers. With the advent of the electronic derivatives markets in the mid-1990s, Orc Software was one of the first to arrive on the shores of Lake Michigan from Europe with advanced trading systems. Since the mid-90s, Orc Software (now Itiviti) has played a key role in the evolution of proprietary trading.
