NEW YORK - June 7, 2004 - Financial Technologies International (FTI), the leading provider of Financial Enterprise Software (FES) to the global banking and securities industry, today announced the launch of StreetDashboard, a functionally rich graphic visualisation tool powered by AltioLive from Integra SP.
StreetDashboard, is a powerful browser based presentation layer that leverages the rich functionality of FTI's integrated information platform to visualize consolidated and critical real-time information at an enterprise level. StreetDashboard delivers user-defined critical performance indicators in real-time providing greater accessibility to key data, increased visibility into business performance, and a better user experience.
"The front office has had real-time graphical interfaces for years and uses visual information for critical decision-making on an instantaneous basis," said Mike Meriton, CEO and President of FTI. FTI is taking this technology to the middle and back office to provide a holistic real-time view of disparate information so that decision making at the corporate level is revolutionized."
Traditionally companies have developed islands of information to meet separate operating business needs. FTI is one of the leading solution companies addressing the complexity of consolidating accurate and timely information from isolated data sources spread across a company. StreetDashboard is FTI's latest product offering designed to help firms visually create and monitor key indicators such as currency, country and counter-party exposure in real-time to optimize critical tasks such as cash flow and collateral management while minimizing risk. Positions and holdings change continuously and dramatically based on streaming trade and market data creating both risks and opportunities at any given moment. StreetDashboard is the FTI tool that provides users access to graphical and actionable financial data to make the right decisions at the right time.
Meriton added, "We evaluated a number of companies and visual presentation layers in search of a powerful tool that is easy to use and implement. Integra SP is the only company with the right product with the right mixture of visual features and functionality to become the critical window into FTI's StreetEnterprise applications."
"We are delighted to have been chosen by FTI as the dynamic presentation layer for FTI's innovative management information solution to complement its StreetEnterprise product suite," commented Sven Thiele, CEO of Integra SP.
"The Altio platform interoperability, fast implementation capability and clear ROI are key advantages that we bring to StreetDashboard."
StreetDashboard brings significant benefits to FTI end-users, including a homogeneous enterprise view in real-time of critical data with the ability to drill down and target specific indicators. This level of dynamic data management ensures that decisions reflect prevailing conditions and makes available the necessary data for compliance with regulatory forces such as Sarbanes Oxley and Basel II.
A demonstration of StreetDashboard is being unveiled by FTI at the Securities Industry Association (SIA) Technology Management Conference to be held in New York, June 8-10.
