Representative Projects:

Security Repository

For a large asset manager, Venture developed a Security Repository on an Oracle / Unix platform for single point of Security Master maintenance. Venture built Oracle procedures, packages, and triggers to provide application logic, process vendor updates to the Security Master, and enforce Security Master data referential integrity. The design provided for the queuing of inbound front-office requests for new Security Master setups as well as outbound queues for servicing requests for Security Master information by other applications.

Central Trade Manager

Venture was asked to define business requirements and initial architecture models, in particular, pre-settlement confirm/affirm functionality, for a Straight Through Processing service provider. Venture developed business use cases for establishing required STP business workflows and participated in the subsequent QA review/approval process. Venture was responsible for developing the functional design using UML tools which included Rational Rose and Ensemble Streams for workflow modeling with active links to use cases. In addition, Venture developed the functional design architecture for a transaction-processing engine providing a central match facility for automated trade allocation and confirmations.

SWAP Processing

Venture was commissioned to define the system architecture requirements to enable a large fund accounting system to process Total Rate of Return SWAPS. The enhancement extended across security reference data, required the creation of new transaction types, and modifications to accruals, general ledger processing, and reporting.
