i2GEN enhanced dealer brokerage automation system within the US financial market
Financial Database Services (FDBS) is one of the leading developer, integrator and provider of broker dealer technology in the United States of America. Back in 1979, FDBS pioneered a world-class broker dealer automation systems-CAESAR, which is still one of the best back office management solutions available in the domain. The application was originally developed in Informix 4GL then migrated into Four Js BDS. FDBS was looking for a Genero professional services provider who could migrate the CAESAR application into modern-environment (BDS to Genero 2.5) with enhanced features to match the market requirements.
i2GEN worked closely with the IT team from FDBS to understand the requirements and provide a PoC to showcase the new enhanced features of Genero in CAESAR to ensure the end results matched FDBS’s requirements.
CAESAR is a mission critical application which needed high-end Genero expertise to handle without disrupting the process; over 100 million transactions per day. i2GEN’s team studied the 4GL codes in the modules to understand the level description and field attributes required in the new forms. All validations were extracted from the old module, including necessary changes in the record reference and incorporated variables.
The team successfully delivered the enhancements without disruption to the business or application’s users.
i2GEN then successfully completed the migration for CAESAR-2 months ahead of schedule. The CAESAR system is comprised of 481 programs, containing more than 1 million lines of source codes and a total of over 4025 reports and screens. i2GEN continues to deliver enhancements for the application by working closely with FDBS IT team to deliver executable programs at exceptional speed and delivery excellence, continually supporting FDBS on all aspects of the project.
