NEW YORK, April 22, 2021 – IPC, a leading provider of secure, compliant communications and multi-cloud connectivity solutions for the global financial markets, today announced that its IPC Agility™ platform has won “Best New Product” in the 2021 Markets Choice Awards, the flagship awards event from one of the industry’s largest media groups.
“IPC Agility is a dynamic platform that can accelerate the development of services across IPC’s vast community of partners and users,” said Tim Carmody, Chief Technology Officer, IPC. “As an organization, we are embracing open-platform methodologies to encourage more aggressive adoption of new technologies on our worldwide ecosystem, which is exactly what modern traders need.”
Recently launched in the first quarter of 2021, IPC Agility is a transformational solution working in concert with IPC’s award-winning Unigy® & Connexus® platforms. IPC Agility is an application platform for tools and applications developed by IPC, partners, or customers. This enables digital transformation in high- and low-touch trading, accelerates innovation and technology adoption, empowers interoperability and complex collaboration, and creates efficiency at scale in a rapidly evolving market.
Trader agility is the direct result of IPC’s continued “API First” vision and philosophy in building products that drive efficiencies and enable new paradigms. Development teams will be empowered to work in parallel across containerized applications, reducing costs and shortening the application development and deployment life cycles.
“IPC Agility enables digital transformation in high- and low-touch trading and accelerates innovation in capital markets,” said Mohan Virdee, CEO and Publisher of Markets Media Group. “As markets move faster and with more volatility and complexity, institutional market participants especially need to increase efficiency and reduce risk. IPC Agility makes that happen seamlessly.”
IPC Agility builds on the success of Connexus Labs by incorporating multiple state-of-the-art technologies in order to simplify and optimize deployment of applications over the IPC trading and communications ecosystem. IPC Agility’s “Unified Services Platform,” powered by VMware Virtual Machines and Kubernetes Containers, ensures that tools and applications on IPC’s network are deployed in the most flexible and optimized manner available.
