FIX Flyerâs Ignition allows software developers to catch defects and correct them earlier in the application lifecycle â providing users with confidence and reducing costs associated with the development and deployment of FIX protocol-based systems. FIX Flyer is especially useful for counterparty simulation and testing the increasingly complex functionality used in algorithmic trading and simulating brokers.
âWe have a rigorous testing process that leverages both in-house and external testing venues to deliver performance, scalability and resilience improvements from one release to the next,â said Domingo Gonzalez, Vice President of Engineering, Charles River Development. âFlyerâs Ignition is a valuable tool that helps us manage hundreds of complex test cases and automate regression testing and quality assurance for FIX based applications.â
Ignitionâs point and click Graphical User Interface (GUI) makes it easy for Charles River to control the testing process by simplifying the creation and management of detailed trading scenarios. Charles Riverâs Quality Assurance team also analyzes the results of more than 500 tests with simple to read reports.
Ignition allows any firm on the leading edge of electronic trading to keep up to date with changes without increasing staff. âAs electronic trading continues to expand and grow, institutional investors require the highest degrees of quality without the increased overhead,â remarked Brian Ross, the CEO of FIX Flyer. âIgnition offers automated and independent testing to make the entire investment processing chain efficient. We are thrilled that Charles River Development continues to use Ignition as a crucial component for their FIX testing plans.â
