From the Gaming Scalability event, June 2009 in London (http://gamingscalability.org).
Today's electronic markets are demanding lower and lower end-to-end latency. The acceptable time from an event occurring to reporting the effect of the event to consumers around the world has gone down to seconds and even sub-second in some cases. This presentation shows how the combination of an Enterprise Data Fabric inside the firewall and Push Technology for delivery over the Internet ("the last mile") can effectively address this problem and turn it into competitive advantage.
