“I engaged Data Inc to help us develop the “eBook” (electronic order book) application. This system replaced the existing individual paper books maintained by each trader. The electronic version of the order book captures all information needed to process trade orders, provides commission and tax calculations, provides for override capabilities, and eliminates a large percentage of paper distribution. This system was integrated with existing mainframe applications via MQ Series and via CICS Gateway to record the trade related information into the main system to help the back office people.
The reason we hired Data Inc is because of our long and successful prior relationship with them. Data Inc has been able to supply excellent staff at a reasonable cost. They also have a large diverse staff in numerous locations (US, UK, India) that was very important for this assignment. This application needed to be implemented in the UK and was being designed from the US based systems area therefore we needed a company that could work both in Europe and the United States. We relied heavily on Data Inc’s Development Center and Staff.
This initiative was a highly visible and business sensitive project that had many aggressive time constraints. Even with the aggressive time constraints, Data Inc adhered to their disciplined software development procedures and delivered a high quality product without incident.
Due to the success of the implementation additional funding was granted for a second phase and of course we hired Data Inc to partner with us on the next set of deliverables. As always, the relationship with Data Inc was very professional and very amicable. It is a pleasure to work with Data Inc”
