Market-Based Simulation to Support the Testing of Your Financial Applications

Complete trade workflow and scenario negotiation providing end-to-end simulation and testing of your trading applications. Real market-based testing via simulation and synchronized testing with one or more client trading applications and one or more market providers. Eliminate dependencies, increase your test coverage during off-hours of trading, enhance the testing of your financial applications and improve overall efficiencies during your testing process.

Flexibility and Auto-Generation to test your Financial Applications in every aspect as it relates to messages, protocols and test data.

FTS Simulate is any market data or trade specific electronic feed agnostic. A template-driven approach provides simulation, support and extendibility for any feed or protocol. Multiple message types and protocols are supported out-of-the box. The technical capabilities leveraged to support any simulation minimize the support for new protocols and trade scenarios going forward. Combine these techniques with the auto-generation of test data from flexible templates and from production-like test data, to simplify and streamline your testing efforts today and in the future.
