What are examples of conflicts in AT development and operation?

The need for low latency gives rise to a conflict between speed (necessary for profitability) and the inclusion of fail-safe code that may add latency (necessary for safety of external stakeholders).  An inherent conflict also exists between minimizing costs and satisfying obligations to, for example, paying for research and development of real-time risk controls and/or redundant systems.  As time to market for an AT system matters, production pressure also lead to launch of risky trading systems.  The need for profitable AT systems cannot take precedence over the quality—stability and reliability—of the global system.
