Last year, our CAO, Brian Hunt joined Fintech Focus TV, where he examined voice trading during the remote working transition. In a recent Fintech Focus TV episode, our CTO, David Midgett offers an exclusive look at what Cloud9 has been up to since then. From exciting technological innovation and exceptional company growth to how voice trading and data capture technology have changed and why the cloud is no longer a “nice to have” but a “need to have” element of an institution’s infrastructure.
