  • You Test Where? Performance Testing in DR and Prod!  presented by 2015 CMG Mullen Award Winner Kyle Parrish from  Fidelity Investments 
    How do you stress test a brokerage system in production if you can't risk orders processing, trades executing, or violating regulatory obligations? The answer
    used to be,we don't.  But the flash crash and other market anomalies exposed the risks inherent in not testing production. Hear what we learned as we built a
    way to do what had been written off as “too big to test.”
