GBST has joined the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) within the ISV Partner Path and is now progressing through the AWS Foundational Technical Review.
The APN is a global program for technology and consulting businesses that work with AWS to build solutions and services for their clients.
GBST has collaborated with AWS for several years, developing deep expertise in AWS solutions while working together across both capital markets and wealth management solutions. GBST joined forces with AWS to develop industry-first cloud-based trade processing solution Syn~TAC Software as a Service (SaaS) which integrates with Amazon LEX™ to provide advanced voice control technology. With the help of GBST’s virtual assistant ‘Syndy’, users can analyse, investigate and manage exceptions efficiently and respond to queries, without interrupting workflows.
In addition, as part of its global wealth management technology transformation programme, GBST launched the UK’s Catalyst digital front end and suite of APIs via AWS, before moving its Composer back-office platform to AWS architecture. This same technology modernisation is currently being undertaken for Australian Composer clients, who will also move to the AWS architecture. The cloud-based solution provides greater resilience, scalability and improved security alongside faster product innovation. This allows GBST to deploy and release new software code more rapidly while reducing development costs, delivering a more cost-effective solution to clients.
Rob DeDominicis, CEO at GBST, commented: “Becoming part of the AWS Partner Network and working towards the AWS Foundational Technical Review (FTR) status builds on our existing relationship with AWS. It demonstrates our commitment to delivering a secure, scalable and cost-effective service to our clients through continued innovation. By working with AWS to provide all our internal and external development and hosting environments, our clients and prospects benefit from access to our suite of wealth management and capital markets technology solutions via a flexible, pay-as-you-go managed service alongside faster turnaround of ongoing developments.
“It further evidences our aim to build the best technology architecture for our clients globally, supporting future client and market needs while keeping costs low and without compromising on flexibility, security and speed.”
