Moving to a server-based architecture will help Investar*ONE become a more portable solution allowing for greater use of the systemâs processing capabilities, including multi-currency trading and payment functionality. This initiative will help Investar*ONE customers benefit from a relational database structure that will provide enhanced data access options and a streamlined development environment.
Investar*ONEâs migration to a server-based platform will be the second significant technology upgrade recently made to Investar*ONE. SunGard replaced Investar*ONEâs GUI desktop in September 2006 with a Rich Internet Application supported in a thin Web client environment. The initiatives position Investar*ONE for growth as a global transfer agency system solution.
Ken Kempf, president of SunGardâs Investar*ONE business unit, commented, âSunGard is responding to industry demands for a more flexible and efficient technology solution to help reduce costs and improve operational efficiency while maintaining large scale processing capabilities. Our technology initiatives combined with the rich functional capabilities of Investar*ONE are well suited to meet the needs of todayâs mutual fund industry.â
