Imagine Software, a provider of cloud-based portfolio and risk management solutions, has launched the Imagine Financial Platform (IFP) and the Imagine Marketplace.
With these offerings, Imagine provides a cloud-based environment enabling financial institutions, service providers, consultants, and other third parties to use, create, and distribute applications—Imagine Apps—that leverage, customise, and extend the Imagine Trading System.
The Imagine Financial Platform leverages the full set of capabilities native to Imagine including its analytics and data universe to allow for the creation of apps that fulfil mission-critical business needs in areas such as regulatory requirements, compliance, portfolio performance and monitoring, workflow automation, and reporting.
Apps developed using IFP can be as simple as a pricing calculator or as complex as a comprehensive margining system and can be implemented in days rather than months.
"By opening our portfolio and risk management system in this way, we are enabling a broad audience of users and developers to access the powerful analytics and data of an industrial strength solution,” says Steven Harrison, president and chief operating officer of Imagine Software. “Financial institutions now have the freedom to build customised capabilities themselves, access a Marketplace filled with ready-to-use apps developed by Imagine and third parties, or work in coordination with IFP partners to develop apps specifically suited to their business needs.”
