A quick search on "Modelling" turns up more that 7,000 titles in the Computing & Internet Books section of Amazon. With that many authors willing to put pen to paper (or finger to keyboard), this talk will try to investigate why our industry still expends so much energy creating bad models. It will focus on the challenges to effective modelling that are thrown up by both Agile development teams and the Finance business sector, based on experiences over the last 4 years at LMAX, building the world's first retail financial trading exchange.
