The Web Business Server uses standard Siena software to handle security, communication and web-specific data management functionality. Without careful design in this area, the network would be affected by the number of Web users - with network traffic growing exponentially, response times are often degraded and trader performance adversely affected.
Siena has been designed in such a way that the load balancing software used by Web Servers can initiate additional Siena sessions, thus ensuring Siena does not impose capacity constraints on the number of concurrent Web users.
David Mallinder, head of business development & strategy at Eurobase Banking Solutions commented: "The Web trading module adds significant value to our offering. Siena users are now able to offer customers, branches or subsidiaries secure, highly resilient trading and order processing functionality across the web. Structured communication templates facilitate the efficient, accurate and complete passing of information reducing the need for additional dialogue, whilst the module's settlement and trade administration functionality supports full straight-through-processing (STP)."
