Driving big data. Berman modernized the SEC's ability to monitor markets in an age of increasing fragmentation and high-speed trading through the Market Information Data Analytics System, which collects and analyzes data via real-time feeds from 13 equity exchanges. His vision shaped MIDAS into a cloud-based solution that uses advanced analytics and can store and handle datasets on the terabyte scale. With MIDAS, SEC analysts can create visualizations and perform in-depth analyses in real time. Former SEC Chairwoman Elisse Walter described MIDAS as "an unprecedented push to use data to better understand how the market works."
