Traditional users (traders, originators, risk managers etc) run Beacon applications (b-Apps) ] in a browser on their local desktop, laptop, i-Pad or Android phone. No installation or special hardware is required, everything just works. Each time a user runs an application, the application automatically establishes a secure connection to b-Core in the cloud to run (auto-request). b-Core automatically spins the required hardware up and down. Hardware costs are only incurred for actual usage time.
Traditional users provide feedback to developer teams to request application support, enhancements or custom analytics.
Developers support existing applications and innovate by developing new applications, extending existing applications or providing custom analytics to the trading desk. b-Core provides the required services to enable efficient collaborative development, including the automatic provision of hardware for developers to run analytics and test applications (auto-request) and the ability to deploy a new application to users across the globe within seconds.
b-Apps include powerful analytics and tools such as trade blotter, marking and structuring tools, risk and PnL reports etc. for traditional users (non-developers).
b-Modules contain the source code for all business logic underlying b-Apps. This source code is fully visible to our clients, making it easy for our clients’ internal developer teams to customize and build new analytics and application on top.
b-Core contains all the services developers need to efficiently build, deploy and support applications, including all the infrastructure required by users to run all beacon applications in the normal course of business
