Role in Municipal Market Data

This year, the MSRB is undertaking two strategic initiatives related to cloud computing and “big data.” A feasibility assessment of a potential migration of MSRB market transparency systems to the cloud will help determine how to best ensure long-term reliability, data quality and security. The MSRB also will leverage the power of cloud computing to begin an analysis of unstructured market data to evaluate its potential value to the market and its participants. This project supports the MSRB’s effort to evolve the understanding of currently available market data and future analytical capabilities.
