APM with ADS builds upon Coherence, offering a sophisticated position management capability that is flexible enough to meet our customer's demanding trading and risk-management needs.”

“Oracle Coherence has a long history of providing customers with fast, reliable access to critical enterprise data combined with predictable scalability and continuous availability. We are pleased that OpenLink is leveraging Oracle Coherence as part of their innovative ADS product to help their clients achieve flexible, extensible and dynamic views of their data deployed in near real-time,” said Cameron Purdy, Vice President of Development, Oracle.
