XAP for Risk Management

Your legacy trading systems are having difficulty keeping up with increasing trade volumes and your trade reconciliation application is mired in batch processes. Can you assess your real risk in real-time or are you waiting to find out your actual trade position, leaving your firm exposed to credit and operational risks?

XAP In-Memory Computing can help you reduce your risk exposure, meet regulatory requirements and reduce operational costs.





XAP In-Memory Computing enables you to develop, deploy, and manage your application, data, and messaging services with a single product. XAP offers the following capabilities, critical for trading environments:

Real-time Matching:

  • Cache all trades in memory as they arrive
  • Partition trades by symbol, customer or other parameters
  • Use in memory notifications to trigger the match process as trade orders come in
  • Use parallel processing and indexes to match trades fast and efficiently

Cope with Growing Trade Volumes:

  • Use XAP dynamic SLA manager to proactively provision more resources as loads increase
  • Use XAP real-time synchronization and self-healing mechanisms to prevent cascading failure and data loss
  • Use XAP built in alerting and monitoring mechanism to supervise production




XAP enables your app to run entirely on a single platform with all the tiers collapsed into one container. The platform gives you fast data access by storing ALL your data in-memory, ensuring high availability and scaling your app automatically and on-demand. 
End-to-end elasticity enables all system components to scale as resource requirements increase.

During periods of peak load or through seasons of increased traffic, XAP dynamically expands your application onto additional physical resources – automatically and on-demand, to meet any SLA. Resiliency is guaranteed by in-memory backup within each container, and by mirroring data to a traditional database outside the runtime.
