Excellent article reviewing Silverlight 4’s key business benefits for building single-dealer portals


Check out Mike Poston’s excellent (and thorough!) review of Silverlight 4 on the Platformability blog.

The post is entitled “Silverlight 4 – is it what banks want?”. It goes into a lot of detail on the business benefits Sliverlight 4’s new features could have for banks building single-dealer portals.

When examining Silverlight 4’s new pre-trade based features, Mike covers data aggregation, persistence and low latency rendering.

The section on the deal-capture based features covers trade ticket stability, batch trading, field formatting and input validation.

The post-trade based features covered include straight through processing and trade confirmation printing. There is also a final section that covers building applications with Silverlight 4 which specifically covers the new features that aid banks looking to build single-dealer portals.

Well worth a read.
