NEW YORK - Tervela, the leading provider of open, intelligent, hardware-accelerated messaging systems, and Arista Networks, the leading vendor of low-latency 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) and Cloud Networking Solutions, have partnered to offer an extensible, high-performance messaging architecture to address the unique challenges of the financial services sector and other contemporary computing environments.
The joint offering combines the capabilities of the Tervela Message Network(TM) with Arista Networks' 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches and Extensible Operating System (EOS). This integration delivers a unified communications platform not only capable of responding to the need for high-performance messaging in modern financial applications, but also facilitating a set of infrastructure-based services.
"The collaboration between Tervela and Arista Networks represents an architectural transformation of the messaging infrastructure that will be a significant business enabler for data-intensive organizations," said J. Barry Thompson, CEO of Tervela. "The pillars of that transformation are intelligence, extensibility and performance. This is what makes the partnership with Arista so natural."
Key features of the Tervela and Arista Networks solution are as follows -
-Application-awareness, dynamic filtering, and adaptive quality of service are key capabilities.
-In-network services for information state and data persistence reduce deployment complexity, accelerate application performance and increase computing utilization.
-A high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet core coupled with hardware-accelerated message switches ensures unparalleled, deterministic and consistent application performance along with ultra-low latency.
"Recent advances in server capacity, while significant, are outmatched by the explosion of financial information, the sophistication of financial applications, and the demand for rapid, predictable response times," said Kenneth Duda, founder and vice president of Arista Networks. "These demands are met by a new architecture, in which Arista's ultra-low-latency Ethernet switches work with Tervela's intelligent message switches to deliver a superior messaging infrastructure."
Andy Bechtolsheim, founder, chief development officer and chairman of Arista Networks will be the keynote speaker at the STAC Performance Summit in New York City on June 4th. The event will discuss high-performance innovations and standards used to measure messaging. STAC meetings bring together the industry leaders who are building and using the latest low-latency, high-performance solutions for trading. Tervela and Arista Networks are both STAC members.
Tervela designs and delivers next-generation, enterprise-class messaging platforms used by financial services firms and other data-intensive organizations for better competitive execution regardless of increasing volume, time sensitivity and global distribution requirements of business-critical information. Deployed and in production in some of world's most demanding data centers, Tervela's flagship TMX product line incorporates specialized hardware-acceleration, processing intelligence and an extensible, open architecture that allow customers to rapidly deliver new projects and invigorate existing applications while lowering the risk and cost compared with traditional messaging and middleware solutions.

Higher One partners with a record 88 colleges and universities so far in 2009
More than 2 million students across the country receive refund money faster through Higher One's OneDisburse(R) Refund Management(R)
New Haven, CT - Higher One, a financial services and payment company focused exclusively on higher education, has welcomed a record 88 new college and university partners representing more than 375,000 students from January through April of this year. Each of these institutions has selected Higher One to help improve student services through electronic refund distribution.
"Higher One's value proposition is extremely appealing to institutions of higher education right now, given the funding hardships many colleges and universities currently face," said Dean Hatton, president and CEO at Higher One. "We can help institutions experience significant cost savings in as little as 8 weeks through the elimination of paper check refunds and we can offer all students an optional no minimum balance, no monthly fee, FDIC-Insured checking account designed by students."
Colleges and universities are required to return any residual money in a student account to the student. This money is commonly known as a refund or award. Traditionally institutions have distributed these funds by handing students paper checks at a central office on campus or by mailing paper checks to students.
More recently colleges and universities have experimented with building and managing their own electronic refund distribution programs on campus or implementing software to assist in the collection of student banking information.
Both the paper check and the ACH methods of refund distribution have proven cost and labor intensive on the part of the institutions. In many cases temporary laborers are brought in or staff from other departments are temporarily reassigned to assist in the distribution of refund money to students and to handle any subsequent customer service issues.
Internally managed direct deposit programs are often plagued by low enrollment numbers. What results are two refund distribution programs run simultaneously by the college or university.
Aside from significant labor considerations and low enrollment numbers, schools who've implemented internally managed electronic refund distribution programs have experienced difficulty in keeping student banking information secure.
With Higher One's patented refund distribution service, institutions send Higher One a file with student names and refund amounts and a wire for the total amount to be distributed. That's all it takes for the institution to experience 100% enrollment in Higher One's program.
Higher One educates the campus community about the new service, collects, updates, and protects student banking information and refund preferences, distributes refunds based on each student's refund preference, handles any ACH bounce backs or returned checks, fields any refund related customer service inquiries, maintains compliance with Department of Education guidelines and other regulations, and provides staff with access to real-time, online reports regarding refunds.
The institutions benefit from the cost avoidance Higher One's OneDisburse Refund Management service delivers. In addition, refund payments are delivered to students faster.
Since signing its first client in 2002, Higher One has accumulated more than 300 clients across the country distributing refunds to over 2 Million students. Higher One has eliminated 4 Million paper checks on the way to distributing more than $7.6 billion dollars.
About Higher One:
Founded in 2000, Higher One provides higher education institutions and their students with efficient, convenient and easy-to-use solutions to handle financial disbursements. These include: student refunds, on-campus and community purchases, payroll and employee expenses, as well as the collection of payments from students, parents, and sponsors.
Higher One offers a suite of online banking services including the OneAccount, an FDIC-Insured checking account, and OneCard, a Debit MasterCard(R). To date, Higher One has disbursed over $7.6 billion dollars in refunds for its clients to more than 2 Million students, faculty, and staff at over 300 distinguished public and private higher education institutions throughout the country.
Higher One recently ranked #79 on the 2008 Fast 500 list of the 500 Fastest Growing Technology Companies in the United States. Higher One is based in New Haven, CT.

"Western Union is a trusted and widely recognized name in financial services and their massive footprint of more than 54,000 Agent locations throughout the United States will give our cardholders more opportunity than ever before to add cash to their cards quickly and conveniently," said Jon Palmer, FSV President and CEO.

Payroll Card can simply visit any participating Western Union Agent location, complete some basic information and present their card to the agent with their cash plus a $3.95 service fee. Funds are then available for use by cardholders within a matter of minutes.
"We expect the convenience of reloading at Western Union Agent locations to be well received and widely used among cardholders - especially among those who might receive a salary plus cash tips," Palmer added.
The ability to reload through Western Union is currently available on several PaychekPLUS! Payroll Card programs and will soon be available to other non-payroll programs.

OpenPages Cited as a Leading Provider in OpRisk & Compliance's Annual Operational Risk Software Survey
Berkshire, UK - OpenPages, the leading provider of integrated risk management solutions for global companies, today announced that it was named in the top three within the OpRisk & Compliance Operational Risk Software Survey 2009. OpenPages improved two positions over the 2008 survey in the closely fought annual survey in which over 15 vendors were evaluated.
OpRisk & Compliance's research results were compiled from over 10,000 readers of the magazine from around the world and were also promoted through the OpRisk & Compliance 'Linked In' group online. OpenPages climbed the rankings in four of the five categories assessed in the survey:
- In 'Scenario Analysis', OpenPages moved up four places to first spot - up from fifth in 2008
- In both 'Operational Risk Loss Data' and 'Key Risk Indicators', OpenPages moved up two spots to third place
- For 'Risk Control Self Assessments', OpenPages moved up one rank to fourth place
- In 'Regulatory and Economic Capital', OpenPages came fifth - retaining its ranking from 2008
"We are delighted that our customers are accruing significant value from our solutions and, once again, they have supported us in the OpRisk & Compliance Operational Risk Software Survey 2009," says Michael J. Duffy, president and CEO of OpenPages.

OpenPages is at the heart of the evolution of a new era of risk management and is helping empower companies to identify and manage key business risks across the enterprise - the survey results are evidence of our continuing efforts in this area and business growth in 2009."
Victoria Pennington, editor, OpRisk & Compliance said, "Regardless of politicians' and regulators' promises to strengthen risk management and compliance, times are tough for financial services firms right now.
Even with such a gloomy outlook, the response to this year's OpRisk & Compliance annual software survey has been the strongest yet. As usual, however, the margins between the players in the top tier were minimal, as the largest four companies tussled for control of the different categories."

OpenPages' solutions empower a risk-based approach to identify and manage key business risks across the enterprise.

ALI Solutions' OnQ 3 (TM) to Handle Over 3 Million Collections Calls per Day
Improvements to Industry-Leading Intelligent Campaign Management System Meet Growing Needs of High Volume, Multi-Center Collection Operations
Austin, Texas - ALI Solutions (TM), the leading provider of event-based analytic solutions, announced a new release of OnQ (TM), which automates and centralizes campaign and policy management while ensuring call rule compliance. OnQ 3 provides an unprecedented level of scalability and stability for users with collections centers in multiple locations.
OnQ 3 can process more than 275,000 calls per hour. As the troubled economy drives collections volumes upward, banks and other credit card issuers need collections solutions that can handle larger volumes. OnQ 3 meets this need by effectively processing more accounts and more calls per account, on multiple campaigns that are schedulable throughout the day.
Thomas J. Miller, senior vice president for corporate development at ALI Solutions, said, "More than ever before, our collections clients are focused on two critical performance measures - agent productivity and compliance. OnQ 3 helps them do more with the same resources, while ensuring compliance with the complex governmental and organizational regulations. No other campaign management system is so well suited for today's high-pressure, high volume collections environment."
"According to the American Bankers Association, the percentage of consumer loans at least 30 days late rose to a seasonally-adjusted 3.22% in the October-to-December period from 2.9% in the prior quarter. The ABA said the fourth-quarter rate was the highest since it began tracking the data in 1974, with delinquencies rising in nearly every category. It said these credit trends are unlikely to improve before 2010." (CNN Money, April 2, 2009)
In addition to greater scalability, other new features of OnQ 3 include expanded operating system and database support, advanced phone strategy capabilities and enhanced record management.
OnQ is one of three components of ALI Solutions' Intelligent Contact Suite (TM). OnQ has long been the premier collections automation system among banks, used by most leading credit card issuers and deployed in seven countries. Users routinely report increases in agent productivity and reduces dialer administration overhead thanks to such OnQ features as centralized campaign management across multiple centers, real-time delivery of records, list-sharing across dialers, and intra-day management of campaigns and strategies. ALI Solutions estimates that just two minutes a day of agent down-time in a collections center with 50 seats costs about $1.5 million a year in lost opportunity.
Besides OnQ, the other two components of ALI's Intelligent Contact Suite are CallTech (TM), which maximizes dollars collected or sales-per-agent, optimizing daily outbound call schedules by using call targeting analytics to determine the probability of getting a Right Party Contact and the probability of a response to the call; and ActionSelect for Collections (TM) which drives optimal treatment decisions using Action Analytics (TM), optimization and simulation.

Current Analysis on Cloud Services: New Economic Reality or Futuristic Hype?
STERLING, Va., - Managed IT Services delivered through the cloud promise business customers a flexible, cost-effective and, in some cases, technically superior alternative to conventional technology models. Are these services living up to this promise?
That's one of the questions raised in a new Current Analysis Advisory Report, "Playing in the Cloud: New IT Services Reality or More Vapor in an Already Foggy Economy?"
Current Analysis Principal Analyst for Managed IT Services Amy Larsen DeCarlo says while there is plenty of hype around the cloud concept, there is also some truth to the talk about it representing a real paradigm shift.
According to Larsen DeCarlo, the theory is that cloud service providers possess the technology infrastructure, economies of scale and expertise to deliver managed IT offerings to business clients at a fraction of what it would cost customers to build and operate them internally. The current cloud services era evolved from the days of application service providers (ASPs) and can even trace its roots back to the mainframe computing model. But while the cloud services concept mirrors its predecessors, the underlying technology has advanced to support more sophisticated, secure and cost-effective delivery models. The model benefits from advances including improvements in the underlying networks; virtualization technology that makes it possible to run secure, stable and economical shared infrastructure; software tools that developers use to create applications; and security that effectively balances control with accessibility. These and other improvements lay the groundwork for the kind of dynamic cloud-based services businesses want now.
Also in the report, Larsen DeCarlo examines the strengths and weaknesses of companies best positioned to make the most of the opportunities in the cloud. These providers represent a broad spectrum of services: from dedicated Web-based offerings that may be tailored to a particular client to true multi-tenant pay-per-use solutions. The report concludes with vendor and end-user recommendations.
Current Analysis covers Managed IT Services in its award-winning CurrentCOMPETE service that features Advisory Reports, event-driven Competitive Intelligence Reports, regularly updated Market Assessments, and Company Assessment reports on Managed IT Services providers.
