As a slight diversion from my normal blog topics, I'd like to take this opportunity to briefly introduce you to one of my colleagues and his new Microsoft blog for capital markets. Rupesh Khendry is Microsoft's head of capital markets solutions focus and is a strong ally and partner in our preparation for Sibos 2012 in Japan later this month.
Rupesh has an impressive background spanning over 20 years of experience in global financial services split between enterprise software and capital market organizations. He has held multiple senior global roles in business consulting, product strategy, partner solutions management and strategic alliances. Rupesh has a passion in the areas of trading platforms and risk management, and I know he looks forward to engaging you in discussions via his blog forum.
To read about Microsoft technology in capital markets, I invite you to follow Rupesh's blog. Our plans for Sibos are now in full swing and you can continue to follow both of us for updates before, during and after the event.
