Fidessa Native Solace Adapter Upgrades Integration with Messaging Platform

Fidessa has fully integrated its GS3 (global switching, security and service integration) middleware with the Solace messaging platform with the aim of solving the ‘many to many’ integration problem of delivering information between different systems. The company is a long-term partner of Solace and has released a native Solace adapter that provides faster and more secure integration between Fidessa applications and customer firms’ Solace messaging infrastructure.

The upgrade is designed to support trading firms that are re-calibrating systems development, so they can quickly respond to new market opportunities without breaking existing systems. The Solace adapter makes inbound and outbound data available across all Fidessa applications and across all hubs in Fidessa’s globally distributed installations, bridging customers’ systems with infrastructure hosted by Fidessa.

Steve Grob, director of group strategy at Fidessa, says: “The rapid take-up of Solace technology across our customer base aligns with our approach of making available key components of Fidessa architecture to top tier firms. Combined with other initiatives, this enables firms to deploy new systems without the usual headaches in terms of integration, change control and IP delivery.”

Keith McAuliffe, general manager of financial services at Solace, adds: “A key part of our success has been that the Solace interface is the same regardless of where data resides, be it onsite or in the cloud. Our partnership with Fidessa makes our proposition even more powerful by providing tangible, real world advantage.”
