The move means Bravura is now able to provide secure hosted applications to support clients’ wrap propositions from its UK data centre.
Bravura chief technology officer Nick Parsons says: “Through our agreement with Sybase, our wrap platform is being used in the UK market on a hosted basis for the first time.
“Hosting Talisman reduces time to market for our customers which is critical in current market conditions. Sybase gives us a tremendously resilient platform to underpin our hosted offering.”
Bravura currently powers the Aviva Wrap and the Nucleus wrap.
Platform specialist Stan Kirk says: “I’m surprised that they aren’t already hosting Talisman in the UK. Previously they were hosting everything in Australia which strikes me as a bit weird. It makes the whole thing a little bit slower and it means that when things go wrong it makes it a bit more difficult to fix them.”
