Commonwealth Bank of Australia Selects Progress Apama to Expand Equities Execution and Improve Trading Efficiency

Progress Software Corporation, a global provider of application infrastructure software used to develop, deploy, integrate and manage business applications, today announced that the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), one of the largest listed companies on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and included in the Morgan Stanley Capital Global Index, has significantly improved efficiency within its equities execution and trading division by using Progress Apama.

As a Complex Event Processing (CEP) platform used by many of the world’s leading banks and financial institutions, Progress Apama enables CBA traders to apply unique and proprietary algorithms to automate select transactions. The Apama platform allows organizations to expand their coverage and process orders more efficiently in accordance with specific instructions or business rules, freeing up operators to focus on business requiring manual expertise. Globally, Apama delivers proven performance, sophisticated functionality and a high degree of flexibility. Apama customers are given access to out-of-the-box algorithms, algorithmic “building blocks” and tools which enable them to modify the strategy logic for their specific needs.

CBA worked with Progress to adapt Apama to Australian market conditions and to seamlessly integrate it with both its internal systems and the ASX.

“Progress was very committed to the success of the project and provided a highly experienced team of consultants to support the Commonwealth Bank. Our experience has shown that the flexibility of Apama makes it particularly well suited to adapt to regional requirements, such as those in Australia,” Dr John Bates, Progress Apama Co-Founder and General Manager said.

Progress Apama’s leadership was confirmed recently by independent research firm, IDC, when it gave Apama the highest cumulative score in a comparative assessment of the top CEP products on the market. The IDC report1 highlighted Apama’s superior overall performance, functionality and market penetration, as well as its ease of use.
