In Financial Markets, building a platform integrating your own pricing and risk models is crucial to stay in control of your risk while keeping a competitive edge.
ING Financial Markets has taken up the challenge by initiating the building of the ING Pricing Architecture (IPA) platform.
The IPA project landscape consists of service-oriented components that will enable the real-time and portfolio calculations of financial risk metrics and simulations (e.
g. VaR, Expected Shortfall, Bilateral Margining) which are driven by new ECB regulation as well as advanced Risk analysis on the derivative product portfolio of Financial Markets (interest rates, credits, foreign exchange).
This will be a key platform in the IT landscape for our global dealing rooms, with many scrum teams cooperating towards one Financial Markets IT landscape.
The Integration team is at the center of the IPA architecture and is an essential part of the IPA domain. The main application developed and maintained by the team is an orchestrator system used for linking different services provided by the other IPA components to build workflows that realize a vast number of calculations and reports.
The Integration team is responsible for :
Developing features for the Orchestrator system to enrich the existing functionality
Exposing the workflows functionality through web services to the other IPA components
Maintaining the front end interface used to interact directly with the Orchestrator system
Keeping up to date the workflow designs definitions used for IPA processes
