SunGard Business Integration, an operating unit of SunGard announced the successful completion of full trade test scenarios with the GSTPA’s Transaction Flow Manager (TFM) for both U.S. and U.K. equity scenarios, held during October.
The scenarios comprised the full TFM messaging suite, complying with the TFM business protocol for both exchanging trade information and handling status messages. The scenarios were handled by the MINT GSTPA Solution, which is based on MINT Knowledge Master for control of business logic, MINT Knowledge Broker which provides connectivity and dynamic routing, and MINT TFM Adapter acting as a communication layer with the TFM.
This successful test performance demonstrated MINT’s ability to manage the TFM conversation at one end, while automatically generating the in-house message sequences on the other end. A Web-based view of the aggregated trade details allowed business users to monitor trade status throughout the whole trade lifecycle. Trades were processed straight-through, with no manual intervention whatsoever. This concludes the integration testing phase of the MINT GSTPA Solution with the axion4gstp test environment.
SunGard is itself planning to become a `message concentrator’ for gstp/axion4.
