Thursday, December 29th, 2011

As 2011 comes to a close this week, we thought we’d share some of our favorite (and most popular!) blog posts from the Hedge IT stream. As expected, topics such as cloud computing, Dodd-Frank and technology outsourcing were popular among our readers.

We expect these trends to continue to permeate the blog through 2012, and we’ll continue to expand our reach by bringing you relevant and interesting content to read (and watch) come next year. If you have suggestions or feedback on the Hedge IT blog, please feel free to contact us.

Alas, here are our most popular hedge fund technology blog posts from 2011:
