kACE² is a robust and flexible platform used for managing data, analytics and publishing and can easily and quickly complement other disparate or enterprise front, middle, and back-office systems. The forming of alliances with other vendors will help provide a complete packaged solution approach regards the use of internal and external data, incorporation of third party and proprietary analytics, and internal and external publishing.
Kalahari’s Alliance program will include:
- Inbound analytics providers, such as FinCAD, and
- Desktop data presenters
“Kalahari recognises that no one vendor provides a complete ‘best of breed’ solution to client’s full trade life cycle requirements. By aligning with complementary vendors in pre- and post-trade life cycle, Kalahari can offer trading and other financial organisations with a tightly integrated solution specific to the client’s specific environment and topology of applications developed internally and provided by third parties.” says Graham Mansfield, managing director at Kalahari. “We look at clients trading ecosystem as a combination of internal and external applications and services from trading venues to data provision to trade management to external clearing and settlement.”
Kalahari will be branding the alliance program and providing the appropriate tools and training to facilitate tight integration for third-party and end customer strong value generation.
