the toc makes it simple to create, combine, and extend large-scale, high-performance intelligent systems in ways that were never before possible.

Picture thousands of mission-critical, always-on applications running all over the world, each independently developed and fast evolving, yet all interoperating seamlessly in real time. This is the future, but it requires more than what’s possible with conventional systems. We've developed a groundbreaking data-oriented architecture for global real-time computing that makes it possible.

For over 15 years, we’ve been using the Toc, our core platform for scalable high-performance distributed computing and open data access, to build advanced trading systems for the world’s largest financial institutions. Our fintech solutions transact over $125 trillion annually across thousands of interconnected systems.

With the Toc, our customers cost effectively outpace competitors and industry change. They integrate more, adapt faster, achieve bigger business goals, develop groundbreaking ideas, pursue new business models and opportunities, launch innovative products, reach new market segments, drive upsells, and expand their customer base, all while satisfying increasingly sophisticated regulatory and compliance needs.

 Data previously locked away becomes openly available in a single dynamic data repository, enhancing operational control, reducing risk, and optimizing revenue and margins. Future-proof systems adapt rapidly as needs change, sharing data and capabilities across formerly siloed systems, development teams, quantitative research groups, and third-party applications in one open integrated view. Senior management no longer depends on static inaccurate reports, market exposure is reduced, and organizational capacity is freed up to take on new business.
