Customer Needs
S&P had a legacy (client-server) application that was used in New York, to compute a few indices. They wanted the system re-engineered to meet heightened user expectations, allow Internet based access, provide more flexibility, and scalable enough to handle higher volumes. 
Our Solution
SPICE (S&P Index Computation Engine) is the system that Trigyn developed on a turn-key basis, to track prices and events, and compute a whole range of indices across the globe. Indices can be set up to be computed in real-time, online (say every 5 seconds), or off-line (at the end of pre-defined intervals). Scalability was implemented as this system handles trade-by-trade data from stock exchanges across the globe and computes over 9000 indices.
