CHALLENGES WITH TICK DATABASE
Full order book data is enormous. A single day of equity on a single exchange represents terabytes of data, with massive spikes at the opening.
Data warehouses or data lakes can easily create hours of data lag, due to the architectural limitation, making them unable to deliver timely, actionable insights.
Level 3 market data is highly granular and requires expensive, complex computations to transform bids and asks into an order book representation at any given time.
