Trace Financial Limited (part of Trace Group plc) today announced that its market leading financial messaging solution Transformer, the data integration, message mediation and dictionary-based transformation toolkit have been successfully deployed into IBM's WebSphere environment.
"Transformer", Trace's new pure Java and XML based data dictionary transformation tool is designed to cope with new and constantly evolving message structures that are the day-to-day challenge representing greatest ongoing risk and cost to major financial institutions. Its unique approach allows business analysts (not just programmers) to control the system and business demands created by evolving messaging standards.
John Murphy, managing director of Trace Financial, said "Transformer's new approach is proven to be inherently more flexible to cope with the latest and evolving message structures. The co-existence of multiple messaging standards is no longer an issue."
Steve Bill, Senior Solutions Manager further adds, "Transformer has now been further enhanced for automatic deployment into an IBM WebSphere environment. Do you want to perform financial message transformation services as part of your overall Service Oriented Architecture? With Transformer, no problem! Do you want to expose these same transformation services to the outside world as a Web Service in a discoverable and secure manner? With Transformer, no problem."
He concludes, "Transformer clearly demonstrates exceptional value in the face of complex and diverse messaging requirements. Working with IBM, Trace can now also ensure business agility is future-proofed."
The need for comprehensive Java and Web Services Descriptor Language (WSDL) programming skills to expose your financial message transformation functionality as secure and discoverable services (both behind and beyond the firewall) has been removed with the latest enhancements to Transformer. Transformer now empowers your Business Analysts not only to create and comprehensively test financial message transformations, but also to deploy them automatically into an IBM WebSphere environment with the click of a button. This includes both IBM's WebSphere Business Integration Server Foundation, and WebSphere Application Server.
Trace Financial will be showcasing Transformer on their stand C339 located in Hall C at SIBOS in Copenghagen between Sept 5th – Sept 9th.
