We have developed a real-time news monitoring system which brings information from Radio, TV and the web to traders.
We use instant messaging as a means to create a channel into a secure environment from the outside.

The complete system is relying on perl to glue together high-performance components written in C++.

I will demonstrate how the system works, give an architectural overview, and go into depth for some parts like e.g. why instant messaging using Net::OSCAR does not work sending out a message to 10,000 users immediately.
