SunGard’s Ambit Messaging Hub Awarded SWIFTNet InterAct and FileAct Messaging Interface Qualification

16 September 2008

SunGard’s Ambit Messaging Hub, its new messaging platform, has successfully passed the SWIFTNet Interface Qualification for SWIFTNet 6.1 InterAct and FileAct. The solution, which provides a single platform on which customers can consolidate all financial messaging activity, regardless of format, has been qualified based on a range of criteria, including security, message processing, integration support, application support, operational stability and more.

InterAct is SWIFT's interactive messaging service that supports the exchange of messages between two parties. Designed to complement FileAct and FIN, InterAct can support tailored solutions for market infrastructures, closed user groups and financial institutions. With InterAct, institutions and communities can exchange messages in an automated and interactive way. Leveraging these interactive messaging services will help SunGard’s Ambit Messaging Hub offer customers an infrastructure designed to meet demands for flexibility, openness and scalability.

Hans Cobben, group vice president for global payments and messaging solutions, commented. “This qualification is very important, as it demonstrates the scalability of the solution. The Ambit Messaging Hub offers a single operation Web interface for both business and IT users, each with its own flavor and personal customization. It supports all SWIFTNet services including FileAct (files) and InterAct (messages), and will serve as FIN connector, as well as SIC and Secom interface for the SWISS market.”

The Ambit Messaging Hub supports any message standard, XML and non-XML, and allows simple and codeless transformation definition, within the context of the customer‘s business logic. It protects the back-office application from any need to change due to standard updates. The Ambit Messaging Hub is highly scalable thereby able to serve entry-level customers as well as tier one customers. The solution was developed using the Infinity Process Platform, part of SunGard’s visionary SaaS initiative, Infinity. It is based on full Java and J2EE technology in a SOA architecture, with the ability to run on any platform and database.
