Operations Management highlighted Interwoven Peer to Peer (P2Pâ¢) as the key vendor innovation of the year. Interwoven P2P is designed to enable financial services institutions to streamline their trade processing by standardizing communication between counterparties and market participants while retaining a highly flexible data format. Interwoven P2P was recognized for its innovative design and versatility, which enables broker-dealers, prime brokers, specialized commodities traders, and asset and portfolio managers to automate and streamline their market communications needs.
The solution allows market participants to send bilateral messages using any data format, transport mechanism, or messaging protocol. Trade messages are transmitted directly and confidentially between any two counterparties, eliminating the need for an intermediary hosted message broker âa key advance on current messaging systems. Within the same cost-effective, out-of-the-box message infrastructure, Interwoven P2P provides the ability to use any existing standard, or exchange custom messages between two parties.
Interwoven P2P is also incorporated in the recently announced Interwoven DealConnect for DTCC solution, which allows firms to connect with the Trade Information Warehouse from the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation.
Jeanene Timberlake, managing editor at Operations Management commented: âIn a sea of hosted messaging solutions, the ability to communicate one-to-one is a novel option. With its launch in the fall of 2006, when the issue of manual derivatives processing was still fresh in the minds of back-office operations executives, Interwovenâs P2P platform was a well-timed solution.â
âInterwoven is thrilled to receive the Operations Management Award of Excellence in recognition of our achievements after a year of strong growth and innovation,â said Jos Stoop, vice president and general manager of global capital markets at Interwoven.
âThis success is the result of our continued focus on delivering targeted solutions that meet the unique requirements of the global capital markets community. Interwoven P2P is a perfect example of this strategy at work, as the solution enables organizations to keep pace with the growing volume of trade activity, while at the same time reduces risk.â
