2015 Outlook: Pete Sinisgalli, Eze Software Group
Pete Sinisgalli is CEO of Eze Software Group, a provider of trading systems
What were the major themes of your business in 2014?
Investing in both our business and technology was a major theme in 2014. We focused on expanding our client service capability and research and development. R&D spending in particular has increased by more than 25% since the formation of Eze Software Group in 2013. This investment accelerated an exciting product roadmap that broadened the feature set of our core products (Eze OMS, RealTick EMS, and Tradar PMS), enhanced integration across the product suite, and advanced our strategy for bringing our offerings to the cloud. What is especially rewarding is that we are already seeing the impact of this investment as evidenced by the dramatic increase in the number of clients leveraging multiple Eze Software products across the investment lifecycle. 2014 was a tremendous year for Eze Software Group, our employees, our partners, and our clients.
What are your expectations for 2015?
In 2015 we will continue to enhance our core product lines to ensure our clients have industry-leading investment technology. At the same time we will execute our cloud strategy by continuing to build cloud-based versions of our capabilities in an iterative, phased manner. This is a multi-year effort, but we’ll continue to release new capabilities throughout 2015. We also have some exciting new integrations and innovative technology to share with our clients including the recent integration of our EMS and OMS products. We also recognize our customer service is a key differentiator for us, and we’re making investments in the coming year to ensure we continue to deliver the best customer service in the business.
