Direct Edge, based in Jersey City, New Jersey, is an electronic marketplace where investors can buy and sell U.S. stocks. Daily trading volumes exceed 1 billion shares. It has 85 employees.


  • Direct Edge needed to support major anticipated increases in trading volumes as it moved to become a full-fledged stock exchange.
Beyond low latency today, we wanted enterprise-class scalability, reliability and a vendor with a vision. That’s what makes Informatica so valuable to us.
