MONTREAL – April 23, 2015 – TickSmith Corp, a provider of Hadoop-based financial big data solutions, today announced that it has added Book Replay, an historical book viewer, to its TickVault* Financial Big Data Platform.

Book Replay uses data from any exchange or combination of exchanges and trading destination. Additional data stored in TickVault*, such as a firm’s trades, news and more can be used to provide additional views, reports and analytics.
