Asset Control Upgrades Clients To New Version of TAPMaster

Subscribe to our newsletter

Asset Control has unveiled the third full feature release of TAPMaster, introducing fundamental new functions and offering increased performance, scalability and the security capabilities of the latest Microsoft technology. TAPMaster, which recently came into the fold of Asset Control’s offerings following its acquisition of TAP Solutions (Reference Data Review, April 2007), is an end-to-end Microsoft server turnkey platform for acquiring, deploying and managing market and reference data content.

According to Marc Alvarez, vice president, products and marketing for Asset Control, the single biggest change in this version is the move to the latest version of Microsoft’s SQL Server database and support for the Intel 64 bit processor. “These are two very fundamental enhancements that serve to increase performance across the board – we are already seeing improvements in data throughput up an order of magnitude (ie tenfold). And it appears to be pretty consistent across the whole product – from data acquisition, parsing and loading as well as querying and message notification.”

The enhancements also extend the TAPMaster product line at the interface level, Alvarez says. “More than ever before, clients can achieve rapid integration of TAPMaster produced content into both business applications as well as inhouse data management capabilities,” he adds.

Other enhancements include extensions to the TAPMaster data model to support corporate fundamental data, market trading, IPOs, rights issues, takeovers, mergers, chart of accounts and trading calendar information. In addition, TAPMaster v3.0 provides upgrades to the OnDemand and Publisher data management modules.
Asset Control is in the process of upgrading all its TAPMaster customers, many of which are moving immediately to the SQL Server 2005 and 64 bit platforms. It is also working with Microsoft to fully qualify the latest release’s performance at its integration facilities, with a number of staff assigned to carrying out this qualification over the next few weeks. The move to the latest technology infrastructure is requiring some additional work outside the usual release planning.
