Western Asset Management, a fixed income asset management firm with $170 billion assets under management, needed a system to integrate a Sybase-based trading system with a Charles River Accounting System. Charles River, a third party compliance standard, required data not found in Western’s trading application. A VB/SQL Server data mapping solution by Arnone Consulting provided the answer. Users could define mapping rules for securities through a simple user interface; unrecognized securities would automatically be added to an exceptions table so users could add mapping rules for them. The end application allowed users to quickly maintain and update the import process between the trading and compliance systems.
