  System Resilience

Five-point plan calls for urgent action to prevent errors lying dormant in

Business Wire

NEW YORK -- February 5, 2013

System errors are seen by too many as “the price of doing business.” But
incidents like Knight Capital’s $440 million trading disaster and NASDAQ’s
botched Facebook IPO demonstrate that that price is increasing astronomically
-- and could spiral out of control if IT leaders don’t get a grip on the root
cause of these failures.

That’s why today CAST (Euronext: CAS) issued an open letter to Chris Isaacson,
the Chief Operating Officer at BATS Global Markets Inc., the third-largest
U.S. stock exchange operator, on the heels of their recent coding glitch. The
open letter offers friendly advice to Chris Isaacson on how his organization
could secure the resilience of its market-facing systems with a simple
five-point plan eliminating system-level errors hidden in its source code. You
can find the full text of the open letter to BATS’ Chris Isaacson on our blog.
