Model Based Architectures - For sustainable Competitive advantage


Model-based architectures are conceptually superior on all fronts to conventional approaches to development. So far, they have not yet attained high levels of maturity and robustness and hence most organizations are living with conventional approaches. This paper compares the next generation of architectures, called model-based architectures, with current generation architectures from these perspectives. The extent of improvements in model-based architectures over current generations of applications is evaluated based on the above listed criteria for sustainable competitive advantage.

Managing Vendor Code Customizations with AccuRev Stream-based SCM


Customizing third-party “vendor” source code is becoming increasingly common. But managing the incorporation of vendor application releases alongside customizations requires an additional layer of software configuration management (SCM) to integrate subsequent vendor releases.

The Advantages of Enabling Order Execution in Hardware


The increasing volume of orders, pervasiveness of algorithmic trading systems and customer demand for lower latency are outpacing the capabilities of the software- and server-based systems sell-side firms use to do process trades in financial markets globally. This is causing many of these firms to experience lower trading performance, dissatisfied customers and high operational complexity and costs. This white paper looks at the disadvantages of traditional approaches to achieving the guaranteed messaging requirements of order execution and explains the benefits of solutions that perform message routing entirely in hardware.
