Sniffing out SIFMA

While other more fortunate journos will be winging their way to New York in a day or two for the annual SIFMA Technology Management Conference, I have been excluded from such a coterie

However, FinancialTech Insider will be covering the buzz on the exhibition floor remotely with the help of Richard Muirhead, CEO of Tideway Systems, who will be filing his personal insights on the conference and exhibition on a daily basis.

Tideway Systems helps companies gain greater insight into their IT infrastructure and application dependencies. Richard is the brother of Charlie Muirhead who created software company Orchestream at the height of the boom. In five years Orchestream went from angel funding of £20,000 to a dual listing on Nasdaq and the London Stock Exchange, and a market cap of more than £1 billion. It was later sold to Metasolv in 2002 and then Oracle in 2006.
