DevOps

Connamara merges Agile values, principles, tools, methods and practices to provide holistic support to ongoing projects. By making operations a “first class citizen” during the design and development process, clients are delivered systems with the highest level of operational quality.

Our products combined with Connamara’s extensive experience and success in providing technology in the regulated exchange space really differentiated them from the competition and made our decision easy. We particularly appreciate their flexibility in meeting our unique requirements and aggressive timelines.

COO, Startup Exchange

MACD has been successfully teaming up with Connamara since 2004. It is very satisfying to see how the QuickFIX global community has expanded in the intervening years.

George MacDonald, CEO MACD

CONNAMARA’S DEVELOPMENT METHODS, EXPERTISE IN MARKETS AND FINANCIAL TECHNOLOGY, AND LONG-TERM TRACK RECORD, WERE THE MAJOR REASONS WE DECIDED TO WORK WITH CONNAMARA SYSTEMS. THIRD-PARTY VENDORS AND OTHER CONSULTING FIRMS DIDN’T OFFER THE FLEXIBILITY OR THE COMPREHENSIVE SUITE OF AUTOMATED TESTING AND AGILE METHODOLOGIES WE KNEW WE NEEDED.

I think the World of Connamara... The quality of the coding is so good it does not need QA testing. They developed, support and provide enhancements to the American Financial Exchange, LLC ("AFX") electronic trading platform that is hosted by Cboe Global Markets, Inc.

Ed Berko, Managing Director AFX

Final tally: 104,670 messages, no errors. I’m declaring Day 1 a success. Thanks for writing solid code!
