General Questions

Our Security Master uses standard Java version 7 with J2EE Servlet and JDBC standards. The Security Master supports IE7 and above and all other modern browsers and uses the General Interface toolkit. The EDMFabric Designer and EDMFabric Engine use Java version 7 and the Eclipse toolkit plugins CDO and Teneo. In addition EDMFabric Designer uses the RCP plugin for native UI support on Mac OSX, Windows and Linux.
We put the software into escrow for you so you take control in the event Yambina ceases to trade.
We have expertice in modern web technologies that present seamlessly across desktop, tablet and phone form factors. These can be built and integrated into the EDMFabric workflows very quickly. They can also include presentation of tasks requiring human input within a larger overall workflow context.

EDMFabric Designer

A single days training course is all it takes for your business analysts to learn the required script coding patterns and use of the ETL mapping tool. This is sufficient for managing changes to supplied workflows and rules on an ongoing basis. To train analysts to be able to build workflows and rules from scratch is an additional 2 days and includes a day learning the Groovy language.
The metamodel that describes the workflows, rules and ETL mappings has a very sophisticated import and export capability that allows merging of meta models that have diverged. This automates all model changes that can be automated and isolates and presents merge tasks that require human intervention.

EDMFabric Engine

Yes, EDMFabric Engine can run in a distributed manner breaking down the workload across many nodes.
EDMFabric Engine supports a master/slave failover architecture. Slaves are active and listening to the heartbeat of the master and gather information about where in the running workflows the master is. It can then pick up where the master was when it goes offline. This can be cascaded to many slaves in a chain.
Yes, we add additional web screens to capture the required human input. These web screens can be added to the Security Master or be grouped in a standalone web application

Security Master

Yes, provided they do not need to be presented on tablet or phone screens. Security Master presents a large amount of information and requires a large screen. We can build specialist web dashboards for presenting smaller amounts of data on smaller screen formats.
Yambina has researched the major reference data feeds from Thompson Reuters, DataScope Equities and Fixed Income and Bloomberg Data Licence Back Office. We have covered nearly all of the data these feeds deliver and mapped this data into the openMDDB open database schema. The Security Master uses openMDDB as it's source database and displays all of the data sourced from these feeds. We can easily add additional feeds and load openMDDB
Yambina uses openMDDB as it's source database because it is open and very extensive. It's 440 database tables cover issuers, counterparties, markets, issue data, all exchange traded instruments, their T&Cs, schedules, their pricing and corporate actions. In addition it has models for order books and other standard definitions for most of the data from front office to back office and beyond. It uses ISO standards extensively. We also do not want you to fall into the trap of using a proprietary model which ends up embedded in your organisation. This makes switching to a new technology vendor more difficult. openMDDB is used extensively by the OFR and was developed by the industry for the industry.

It is core to a number of regulations being introduced to the financial sector. These include using the LEI to identify counterparties when reporting for EMIR and Solvency II.
