Asset Arenaâs Client Portal has been developed using SunGardâs Infinity*. It has a scalable service oriented architecture that facilitates integration with third party applications. Its open-source framework will also allow customers to work directly with SunGard on shared technical and functional enhancements. Key functionality offered by Asset Arenaâs Client Portal includes: customizable dashboards; pre-defined templates for on-demand reports; online access to all reports generated by front-office systems such as Asset Arena Investment Accounting; and secure remote access to software platform services. Asset Arenaâs Client Portal is currently integrated with Asset Arenaâs Compliance and Investment Accounting solutions.
Peter Delano, research area director for Securities & Investments at TowerGroup, commented: âClients' rising expectations, competition for global assets and an economic environment that drives attention to cost all point to the growing importance of client reporting. Shifting from basic client reporting to leading-edge status requires a commitment to improve business process and IT governance, as well as technology in data management and portal interactivity.â
Doug Morgan, president of SunGardâs institutional asset management business, commented: âSunGardâs Asset Arena Client Portal is an important addition to the Asset Arena offering. It provides a fast, cost-effective route to sophisticated management reporting. With it, SunGard can help asset managers and fund administrators increase their operational efficiency and deliver value-added services to their own clients and partners.â
