SunGard is pleased to have been selected as a category leader in the Gartner December 22 Magic Quadrant for Trading Platforms for 2014.
The report evaluates the capabilities and business strategies of 14 vendors in the trading and treasury space. According to the report, vendors in the leader’s quadrant “tend to possess high-order market understanding, global execution and strong R&D capabilities, and funnel progressive innovation into their product road maps. These vendors offer the broadest product functionality and cross-industry segment execution capabilities.”
Evaluation criteria spanned two categories: Ability to execute, which evaluates technology providers on the quality and efficacy of the processes, systems, methods or procedures that enable IT provider performance to be competitive, efficient and effective, and to positively impact revenue, retention and reputation; and completeness of vision, which evaluates the ability to convincingly articulate logical statements about current and future market direction, innovation, customer needs and competitive forces, and how well they map to Gartner positions.
“We believe these latest evaluations underscore our commitment to delivering global trading and risk solutions that help firms comply with increasing regulatory changes and find new growth opportunities. Our global cross asset platform for both electronic and OTC trading helps firms consolidate positions and risk and deliver a comprehensive service to their customers. SunGard is continuously enhancing its trading solutions to help banks achieve more and enhance profitability”, Bob Santella, president, global trading, SunGard.
