With the new added Microsoft .NET capability clients can benefit from faster and more efficient system performance.

Opval.NET was developed by Brady's in-house R&D team following close collaboration with clients. The upgrade will offer a number of benefits including easy integration with a range of third party systems in clients' trading rooms. In addition to providing access to Microsoft's latest technologies such as AJAX and Web 2.0, new features in Opval.NET include support for MS SQL-Server 2005, improved data sharing and increased build integrity, stability and performance.

Andy Hughes, Director, Investment Management Solutions for Microsoft Worldwide Financial Services, commented, "The Microsoft .NET framework is a very flexible tool that enables fast and easy connection between different business applications and software.
