HMC Router application

HMC Router application

Blue Note assessed, enhanced and stabilized the Harvard Management Company's Router application.

  • This is a key operational application which provides a 'soft switch' between:
    • HMC's internal systems such as trade capture, cash wire and security feeds
    • An off-site accounting system
    • An off-site SMAC (securities management and control) system

  • The Router application:
    • Maps and routes transactions (messages) to and from all the above systems.
    • Records acknowledgement of receipt of information and creates cross-reference information.
    • Forms the basis for reconciliation among these systems.
    • Positions HMC well for the approaching T+1 settlement requirement.
  • The application is implemented in C/Sybase.
  • Stabilization was achieved by identifying and resolving problems:
    • within the application logic.
    • with implementation (i.e. memory leaks).
  • Enhancements included adding transaction types such as stock loans and cash wires to the Router
  • Assessment resulted in a series of recommendations, which were adopted, that improved reliability, supportability, etc.
