Caplin Joins Forces with Progress Software to Provide End-to-End E-Commerce Solution

Progress Software Corporation (NASDAQ: PRGS), provider of the leading Progress® Apama® Complex Event Processing (CEP) platform, and Caplin Systems Ltd, provider of web trading technology to the capital markets, today announced a partnership to deliver the Progress Apama Capital Markets Platform integrated with Caplin's single-dealer platform framework. The combined solution provides a complete end-to-end e-commerce platform across multiple asset classes, and is fully accessible from a variety of mobile platforms.

The combined solution, first demonstrated in April 2012, has already been selected by a major Northern European Bank for their institutional and retail FX spot and derivatives business. Both Caplin and Progress are widely-deployed in the FX market and the combined offering is a result of significant customer-led demand for an end-to-end solution.

The partnership enables delivery of Caplin Trader, an HTML5 front end that runs on the Caplin Platform, for end-user client access to capabilities provided by the Progress Apama Capital platform. These include algorithmic trading and smart order routing across multiple, aggregated FX spot and derivatives markets, real-time price generation for RFQ and streaming, auto-hedging of risk positions and order internalisation strategies.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development process, accelerate application delivery times, and ensure that developers will become heroes (not bottlenecks) in the IoT revolution.
Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability to truly gain value from all their data. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product Marketing at Cloudera, covered the ins and outs of Hadoop, and how it can help cloud-based businesses.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how developers and operators work together to streamline cohesive systems.
As Enterprise business moves from Monoliths to Microservices, adoption and successful implementations of Microservices become more evident. The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Documenting hurdles and problems for the use of Microservices will help consultants, architects and specialists to avoid repeating the same mistakes and learn how and when to use (or not use) Microservices at the enterprise level. The circumstance when Microservices is an appropriate solution described in this article and based on the authors' work experiences, best practices available in the Microservices community. However, using Microservices Architecture does not guarantee success to the enterprise.
