Efficiency and accuracy are essential to operations, from data entry to moving data across systems. In addition, middle and back office teams do not want to spend time re-entering or importing trades, positions and market data into multiple systems, given the potential for processing delays and keying errors. Trade origination, end-of-date security master set-up, pricing and trade or position data submission - it all needs to be automatic.
We deploy STP functionality, and integrated market data, order management, risk and accounting systems in order to speed up decision making and to decrease errors from the re-keying of orders. And we use programmatic interfaces whenever possible to link various systems. Programmatic interfaces, provided by your third-party application vendors, offer more robust integration points over file-based tools. Our approach gives you exception alerts and failure notifications and allows you to move data automatically or on demand.
Some examples of Integration Mangement:
- Automated pre-processing data validation
- Sharing of information across applications and with the data warehouse
- Automation of data reconciliation and reporting
- Pricing, position and transaction feeds
- Automation of regulatory filings
