Scenario 1: Client has a set of strategies which trade daily using daily closing prices. At the end of the day, client logs into cloud services, and checks for possible trades for the following day. All data updates, strategy updates and testing have been done automatically. Client places trades and logs out. Time to accomplish task: less than 5 minutes.
Scenario 2: Client spends a lot of time away from the desk. Client logs in from anywhere in the world, from any computer and analyses the updates of the strategies. Client then places trades from the cloud services directly or via other means of communication.
