Lars Zimmer founded dacoma in 1999, after gathering several years of experience in finance IT. He started to work for Reuters in 1990 as student trainee whilst studying IT at university Bonn. In 1994, Lars worked as Project Engineer for Reuters, where he became an expert in the leading trading system Kondor+. The high demand for this specialization and the specific inquiry of one major bank provided the impetus for founding dacoma in 1999. In 2000, his independent product “I.Sec Box” for Reuters Market Data was introduced onto the market and received much attention. Today, Lars Zimmer is one of the leading technical experts for the banking and trade IT, and for provider independent Market Data Management in Germany.
