As a hosted service, the solution allows banks to focus on financial engineering and trading, while SunGard provides and maintains the technology. Running on IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processor-based platforms, Adaptiv Credit Risk is able cost-effectively to provide complex functionality to customers while managing increasing transaction processing rates.
"A few years ago, this type of service was still considered a natural fit for mainframe or large scale Unix technology. Instead, SunGard made a strategic decision to provide a stable, low-cost platform built on IntelÂ® XeonÂ® processor-based servers that scales well and allows us to continuously innovate,â commented Brad Impey, chief technology officer at SunGardâs Adaptiv business unit. âThe decision to develop Adaptiv Credit Risk on Intel processors has facilitated performance improvements, helped us process record transaction volumes, and helped us deliver more value to the financial institutions we serve. As an Intel Software Partner Program member, we have had access to a comprehensive portfolio of planning, development and marketing benefits, all of which helped to make it possible to address the time and cost involved in completing the technical optimization and taking our products to market.â
