Adaptive was founded in 2012 when four industry experts recognised that real-time technology is fundamentally changing businesses within the financial, capital and commodities markets

Real-time e-commerce is fundamentally changing the way business is conducted within financial services, capital and commodity markets. These systems are complex and need the very best people and intellectual property to deliver. This is Adaptive; a financial software consultancy providing deep technological and business domain expertise that can transform businesses.

Adaptive was founded in 2012 with the purpose of solving challenging business problems, leveraging the latest technologies and working together with clients in a professional and collaborative environment.

Adaptive’s architectural approach combines high performance, scalability and resiliency with high development velocity, to deliver using best-in-class technologies which are battle-hardened and ideal for mission-critical solutions.

In 2011 he was lucky enough to find himself on a team of incredibly talented individuals, and had the most rewarding professional experience of his life.

Olivier Deheurles

Co-Founder and CTO

Olivier has been involved in the delivery of financial and commodity eTrading and eCommerce systems for more than 10 years and he is convinced all asset classes will be traded electronically, more transparently, more efficiently and with a better user experience for customers. AI is disrupting and will gradually replace trading desks. Voice channels will be replaced by bots (AI again) and richer real-time eCommerce platforms. Blockchains will disrupt back office and settlement but that will take time, Banks do not really know what their mainframes are doing anymore. His dream is to apply the style of architectures built in finance to other industries, realtime systems are much more efficient and provide a better user experience.
