"We are transforming the core business rules engine of the INVEST ONE product into a configurable solution based on an extensible and scalable service-oriented architecture," said Doug Morgan, president of Investment
Systems, SunGard. "Our overriding aim is to deliver increased value to our
customers principally in the form of greater operating efficiencies."
"In conjunction with several of our key customers, we have developed a multi-year technology roadmap for the migration to a world-class, service-oriented, Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) architecture. This initial release of that development program represents a significant milestone in the delivery of this technology and sets the stage for further innovations with every upcoming release of the product," said John MacIlwaine, chief technology officer of Investment Systems, SunGard.
