  • Business rules processing
  • Web services
  • UI framework

The business requirement

A client needed to replace its execution management system (EMS) that was based on repurposed technology – an Excel sheet that had evolved over time. Given the increasingly critical role of the system, the level of usability and robustness was no longer sufficient. Its performance was lacking. The system was unable to keep up with market updates, leaving traders unsure of what e.g. constituted the current price versus the executed price.
