Platform Agnostic

Connamara is platform agnostic when approaching a project, always looking for the best tools, frameworks, programming languages and operating systems to arrive at the best solution for the client.

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.

The critical component of the re-design is the interface that Connamara developed to provide a real-time AMERIBOR data feed from the AFX platform. This was a critical requirement necessary to support Cboe’s launch of AMERIBOR futures. The AMERIBOR real-time data feed is now in production. I appreciate Connamara’s support of AFX! Thank you and well done!

Ed Berko, Managing Director AFX

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