Transactions handled daily for one of the world’s largest stock exchanges
Digital transformation is driving rapid change. Legacy systems need to be replaced, but also kept running smoothly until newer systems take over. Financial messaging standards and formats are continually expanding, as customers and partners demand real-time API access to business services. And enterprise architectures are quickly moving to the 24×7 cloud..
Traditional approaches can’t keep up. Ad-hoc integrations with generic middleware or custom code quickly become tomorrow’s legacy technology, raising your maintenance costs and delaying deliveries. They make it harder for your technology investments to deliver business results, and increase complexity everywhere.
Volante Designer can help you simplify complexity and manage the pace of change. Spend less time maintaining, and more time designing and building.

Volante Designer is a suite of modular software tools capable of handling the most complex data integration and management challenges. From arrival, through process workflows, downstream integrations, persistence into databases, metadata-based governance, and model-based new development, each component offers a new and better way to address the challenges of data management.
‘Designer’ defines the workflow of data processes. It takes into account how information is routed between parties, what the parties seek to do with it, what type of data it is (eg SWIFT, FIX, FpML etc), the source, validity, structure, exceptions processing and how it needs to be transformed to be consumed by other parties or ‘target’ applications. Volante’s code-generation user- interface enables you to build ‘cartridges’ (logic which ultimately generates code) based upon the models for ‘sources’ or ‘targets’.
Designer provides a comprehensive data management framework, supporting standards and normalisation, data flow and workflow, virtualisation and SOAs, data governance, and model-driven initiatives.
Volante Composer is the central component of Volante Designer. With its spreadsheet-style or drag & drop interfaces, users can easily map message and data definitions from source to destination, with the freedom to customize standard and proprietary formats to real-world requirements.
Rules can easily be defined based on a vast set of formulae available in the interface. When completed, these elements of message processing are represented as a model or cartridge, which is converted to code via Java code generation with the ability to easily choose the target technical infrastructure. If the infrastructure changes the user simply needs to redeploy the model. At the same time user and support documentation are also generated as HTML or PDF artifacts.
By adopting a “model – to – code “approach, customers typically save upwards of 60 % in cost and time to implement data and process integrations.
Volante Format Plug-ins simplify the design process. They enable users of Volante Composer to design data integrations quickly without needing to learn complex data standards and rules.
The result is not only the faster delivery of integration projects, but the ability to rapidly integrate to any platform or application, even including home-grown systems and message types.
Providing message libraries and related validation rules, Format Plug-ins deliver out-of-the-box support for standard formats including SWIFT, FIX, FpML, EDI, Reuters, etc., as well as more generic formats such as XML, ASCII, CSV and Cobol Copybook.
Volante Code Generators automatically convert cartridge models into runtime libraries in native code for virtually any infrastructure environment.
The generated code can also be invoked from within applications, eliminating latency and unnecessary transformation hops. The model driven approach allows client development teams to benefit from using an acceleration tool while still being able to embed the generated artefacts within their overall projects either by integrating directly with Volante Designer’s concrete java API or via RESTful APIs.
When transactions are originated by manual data entry – such as by asset managers or brokers – there can be an inherent risk of errors. As these errors are propagated downstream, the result can be costly, manifesting themselves as rejected SWIFT messages or unsettled transactions.
Designed to support financial messaging formats in the workflow systems of other vendors, DynamicForms allows automatic rendering of web-based screens for wire-format messages such as those used in SWIFT or FIX.
