WHY CORVIL ANALYTICS?
Corvil Analytics is the leader in performance monitoring and analytics for electronic financial markets. Corvil products capture, analyze and learn from network data. The resulting intelligence is delivered to business and IT stakeholders with self-service analysis and machine learning-powered anomaly detection.

Corvil as a Service adds the benefits of Corvil analytics, delivered and maintained by a team of Corvil experts
WHAT DO I GET WITH CORVIL AS A SERVICE?
Operations teams get a dedicated Corvil login, with complete visibility of their trading and market-data operations. Live dashboards track client performance, venue connectivity and per hop latency across the infrastructure. Trade support can search for orders, track them across the infrastructure, troubleshoot application behavior, and retrieve packets captures. Scheduled end of day reports provide tailored views of the day’s trading.
HOW IS THE SERVICE MANAGED AND MAINTAINED?
Setting up and maintaining this kind of visibility takes expertise. Corvil as a Service removes the need to hire and manage in-house Corvil experts to configure and maintain potentially complex Corvil instrumentation. Instead, Pico’s Corvil experts set up tailored dashboards and reports, and you get access to all the data, metrics and captures that you need. Pico manages the hardware life-cycle, monitoring appliance headroom and scheduling upgrades as required.
"It allows us to trace the flow. The logic is built sufficiently for us to be able to break down clients' orders, underlying child orders, and execution. Thus, it's a good way for us to trace client flow through a myriad of different internal systems."

In the design stage, Pico domain experts work with you to design the specific solution to meet your needs. Whether it’s a new build out, or existing infrastructure, Pico will design the full deployment including taps, aggregation, and all required HW and SW. We then work with you to identify the metrics, dashboards, reports and streaming data that you require. Corvil as a Service supports Market Data, Client and Venue trading sessions, data streaming, plus multiple hops across complex infrastructure.
Once the design is agreed, and often in parallel with Pico Infrastructure service delivery, Pico’s Corvil experts fully configure your Corvil analytics. Physical installation includes taps, time synchronisation, aggregation and network appliances. Software configuration includes latency measurements, discovery and dashboarding of trading and market-data flows, end of day reports, and optional machine learning and anomaly detection components. Once up and running, your operations team get direct access to Corvil logins.
With full access to the environment, Pico’s Intellihands engineers will typically implement the solution in a fraction of the time it usually takes in-house engineers.
Once in production, your operations and trade support engineers will have full unfettered access to the Corvil environment: live dashboards, order search and retrieval, drill-down, multi-hop tracking, packet captures and API access.
All Corvil as a Service deployments are monitored and managed by the Pico NOC team, ensuring the highest levels of service delivery. The Pico team keeps your Corvil installation running smoothly, keeping an eye on when capacity upgrades are required. Change management is coordinated with the Pico NOC, so that your Corvil configuration is kept up to date as cross-connects and traffic change.
