Misys, the leading financial software company, has been positioned as a “Leader” in its 2014 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Trading Platforms , for its Misys FusionCapital and Misys FusionInvest solutions. This is just two months after also being named in the Leaders quadrant in the Magic Quadrant for International Retail Core Banking.

The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Trading Platforms analysed the capabilities of software providers and their systems across buy-side and sell-side markets. It covered international system providers that offer financial institutions solutions to manage financial transactions for multiple asset classes and instrument types.

In the research, each trading platform provider was evaluated against a series of sub-categories under two main categories:
1.    Completeness of Vision, where Gartner analysts evaluate technology providers based on their ability to convincingly articulate logical statements about current and future market direction, innovation, customer needs and competitive forces, and how well they map to Gartner positions.
2.    Ability to execute, where Gartner analysts evaluate technology providers on the quality and efficacy of the processes, systems, methods or procedures that enable IT provider performance to be competitive, efficient and effective, and to positively impact revenue, retention and reputation.

Gartner positioned Misys in the Leaders quadrant. As the reports states: “Vendors in this quadrant tend to possess high-order market understanding, global execution and strong R&D capabilities, and funnel progressive innovation into their product road maps. These vendors offer the broadest product functionality and cross-industry segment execution capabilities.”

“We are delighted to be named as a Leader for the second time this year by Gartner”, comments Boris Lipiainen, Global Head of Product Management at Misys. “We believe we have the ultimate trading platforms in Misys FusionCapital for the sell-side and FusionInvest for the buy-side. These deliver the technology, speed and agility for our customers to succed now and in the future. They enable our clients to bring together all their trading systems with global components that offer business-wide, cross-silo solutions in a single state of the art architecture.”

One of Misys trading platform clients is Rabobank. Mark Dodds, Head of Financial Markets Trading Systems, IS&D, Rabobank London, added: “Misys is a trusted and long-time partner of Rabobank and FusionCapital Kondor provides us with a solution to help us rationalise our systems, reduce our IT costs and provide users with a reliable platform with flexibility to meet ever-changing needs.”
