RefDb is a joint development with Mynon
and SMR to create an investment banking /
management reference and broking (routing) database which can be used
to feed Corporate reference applications and or to link applications within
an organisation. See architecture.
- All the reference entities required to support investment banking,
brokerage, and asset management industry
- A configurable routing broker / hub to support transaction flow between
all inter-office applications
- A relational database of your choice to store the data.
- Publish and subscribe XML messages to push the data out to applications.
- A Web enabled user interface to maintain the data.
- Interfaces to get data from external feeds.
- Historical and current data.
- Application gateways for rapid integration into your applications.
- Written in Java and SQL for portability.
An application will subscribe to a particular set or sets of data using
a persistent publish and subscribe topic. This means messages will be
queued for the application even it goes off-line. As data is changed in
the server it is published to the topic and the application receives the
change and uses the data as it sees fit. Typically the application will
store the data in its own database.
- Allows an organisation's data to be stored in one place significantly
reducing maintenance costs and ensuring reliable data is found throughout
- The publish and subscribe architecture means that applications do
not need to change to take advantage of reliable data, only a simple
gateway is required.
- Web based front end allows for the maintenance to be deployed on a
regional or global scale.
- Publish and subscribe decouples applications and makes them easier
to develop because they have independent database structures.
- Can be configured to route and or add / supplement (in-rich) messages
with additional static data to relevant destination/s.
- Data syncronisation across front, middle and back office applications.
- Reliable and timely data.
- Data is published hence no need for applications to request data.
- Central (corporate) data store in one place means lower maintenance
- Possible to outsource data maintenance to lower cost centres.
- Provides the foundation for the deployment of regional or global systems.
- Aids management information reporting on a regional and or global
- Web based maintenance screens are easy to upgrade and maintain.
- Industry standard technology is inexpensive and reliable
