Financial services software provider Misys has ‘simplified and consolidated’ its offering, launching a new family of software underpinned by open architecture called FusionFabric.
The Fusion software family includes four solution lines:
- Misys FusionBanking – a comprehensive portfolio of integrated solutions for retail, commercial and business banking, and corporate treasury solutions.
- Misys FusionCapital – a componentised trading platform for cross-asset trading, valuation, simulation and regulatory reporting, which helps financial institutions streamline operations and lowers total cost of ownership.
- Misys FusionInvest – a cross-asset portfolio and risk management software solution providing a consolidated view of positions and assets for investment management firms.
- Misys FusionRisk – an integrated suite of market, credit and liquidity risk solutions, giving transparency across all risk systems and a holistic view across both banking and trading books. Fast intra-day risk analysis via FusionRisk Insight, which is available on mobile and tablet, enables risk managers to make better decisions based on the latest risk information.
“Our Fusion portfolio fundamentally changes the way banks and financial institutions can protect their IT investments and drive future growth,” states Nadeem Syed, chief executive (CEO) of Misys.
The group has added a further offering to the FusionBanking range; Misys FusionBanking Essence, an open componentised banking solution, which it said mirrors the way banks need to start transforming their digital businesses to remain competitive.
“This ‘outside-in’ approach empowers banks to address their digital strategy first, then enabling the renovation of the product factory, and then continuing with the modernisation all the way to the general ledger,” the group added.
Cash-flow based metrics now feature prominently alongside traditional revenue measures of business performance in the key figures or financial summary pages of any public company.
