What we offer

  • StreamCore

    At many financial services firms, new products and business lines have developed over time, leading to a legacy environment of disparate systems and decentralized information. However, firms now require platforms that can handle multiple types of instruments in the most efficient possible manner. They also need to create holistic view of their enterprise and their end clients in order to properly monitor and control risk and exposure, support compliance and improve customer service.

    SunGard's StreamCore is a centralized data management framework that normalizes and consolidates data from disparate applications across the enterprise into a single repository of accounts, market data, transactions, positions and balances. It can then deliver a single stream of aggregated data into any system, creating easy access to information in real time. With a single, enterprise-wide source of data, you can:

    • Monitor and understand your exposure and positions
    • Ensure that departments across the enterprise are seeing the same data and the same picture

  • Stream Report Writer

    A financial services firm may have all of the data it needs, but if users can’t easily access the information, it isn’t of any use. Yet all too often, a system is only available to IT groups or staff with technical knowledge, not the business people who need the information. And even when they do get access, the information may be spread across multiple processing systems or only available in specific formats.

    SunGard's Stream Report Writer provides a user-friendly solution for accessing and reporting on data from one or more systems, whether they are third-party or internal. The data from each system is transmitted to Stream Report Writer in real time, so you always have the latest information at your fingertips. You can directly query and report on a wide variety of data elements from your back-office systems, helping you access your back-office data when and how you want to.
