Open Technology Standards to Accelerate Interoperability

Steve Taylor, Head of Technology and Architecture

As we become immersed in an era described as the “internet of things,” we are almost taking for granted something that for decades has continued to shackle data into siloes and stifle how data is used and adopted across the enterprise. The way we move information around the enterprise has gone from a ‘nice to have’ to vital to exist. It is this need for greater levels of interoperability that has created a shift in how we approach data integration. The technology landscape has changed significantly in recent years; open source is now the norm rather than the exception. We have seen the emergence of new standards and patterns that are accessible and available to larger numbers of users and applications. This has allowed information to move deeper and wider across firms driving up data quality and operational efficiency. One common challenge remains. How do I ensure interoperability between my commercial off-the-shelf, custom and legacy applications? A decade ago a standardized ETL function within a shared utility was the strategic direction followed, but all too often the projects overran, didn’t deliver or required costly “last mile” integration using point solutions and technologies.

OTC Derivatives Reform – Are you ready for centrally cleared swaps?

Brian Dunton, Head of Instrument Engineering, Eagle Investment Systems

One of our clients’ major preoccupations over the last six months has been the implementation of the Dodd-Frank Act and their preparedness for it. We have had a number of inquiries from clients unsure of what they need to do to become compliant with its provisions and looking to us for guidance.

As such we have been perfectly placed to offer guidance and advice on best practices to ensure compliance.

Upgrade Portfolio Management by Managing Multi-source Data

Joel Kornblum, Managing Director, Regional Sales Director

Do you have a variety of front-office users with different business needs? Do you struggle to support those needs because you are managing multiple sources of data? The process by which your portfolios are reported is often as diverse as the end-users of this information and likely includes data fed from a myriad of vendors. There is no best single source for all your investment data and many portfolio managers are hindered by system limitations due to how data is structured and stored.
