About Aladdin Systems Company

The Aladdin-Systems company was founded in 1993 for the purpose of carrying out projects in the field of complex automation of industrial enterprises.

In 1998 Aladdin-Systems issued the third version of its main product – the Aladdin SQL financial dataflow system kernel (for MS and Sybase SQL servers), which included the SQL Developer tool kit. After that Aladdin-Systems became one of the first companies on the market that offer to their corporate clients a sophisticated tool for independent applications tuning by clients' specialists.

The unique opportunities given by the software development and maintenance tools, which allow fast and easy development and modification of applications without the use of compilators, are greatly appreciated by the software developers in many organizations.

Opened configuration of the applied tuning of the Aladdin SQL system makes possible the optimal distribution of maintenance activities between the internal and external developers.

The Aladdin SQL Business Logic and Accounting Visual Tuning System, which was created in 2005, resulted the considerable increase of the applications development speed; besides, it allows the clients to easily tune the interactions of documents, to change accounting policy and to modify the recording operations rules without any help from programmers.

Financial Markets Solutions

Since 1997, the Company works on the financial markets solutions development, which are initially aimed at corporate clients.

The Aladdin DEPO depositary system, issued in 1998, was considered one of the best on the Russian market.

The Aladdin-Systems company is the absolute leader in the field of special depositaries automation. It is much ahead of the competition in the number and scale of the complete projects in this field (now more than half of the existing special depositaries use the Aladdin SDEPO software, including 11 depositaries from the Top 24 list).

The Aladdin Securities system for internal accounting of financial operations, which was originally introduced in 1997, for the first time, currently constitutes the basis for a number of applications, designed for financial investment companies, banks, asset management companies, asset management departments of pension funds and insurance companies.

In 1999 the company integrated its products Aladdin DEPO and SDEPO, and then Aladdin Securities and Aladdin DEPO, thus creating integrated systems. This was the start of the development of the unified environment for dataflow processing in the system of document-flow and recording. The system is able to support several recording methods simultaneously, all of them using the same input documents; it can also be used by users from different companies within the group.

In 2002 an integrated solution for an asset management company of mutual funds and non-government pension funds, and for individual trust management contracts, was developed in the same way on the basis of the Aladdin Securities and Aladdin FUND products. It has become one of the market leaders in the field of software applications for asset management companies.

The system may include the bookkeeping modules for credit and non-credit organizations, as well as tax accounting and reporting modules.

As of now, some solutions combining broker-dealer and asset management companies or several management companies of different jurisdictions are successfully implemented.

There is a possibility of internal accounting for various clients.

There exists the Analytical Accounting System, which can break down the reports by type of assets and branches in accordance with a given structure; it can also conduct on-line monitoring of an investment portfolio.

Integration With External Information Systems

Great attention is paid to the integration of the Aladdin solutions with other organization’s information systems – both internal and external. Aladdin's and the client companies' programmers together have developed a large number of import-export tools for the import of data from exchanges, depositaries, “bank-client” systems, accounting systems, automated bank systems. On the basis of the Aladdin Message messaging system was developed information exchange solutions for the S.W.I.F.T. and XML formats integration. We have also created on-line interaction tools with trade terminals and internet trading systems.

Geographically Distributed Solutions

In 2002 Aladdin Systems first introduced the inter-office on-line connection solution for geographically distributed corporations. In 2004 Distributed Mutual Funds Agents Network software system was developed. The system maintains the on-line connection between several branches of banks-agents and the management company by virtual private lines.

The Aladdin Message system may incorporate the certified cryptographic means.

Document Flow

The Aladdin DocFlow document flow system allows the recording of incoming and outgoing documents in accordance with the pre-defined rules. It can be supplemented by the Aladdin Archive document image storage module, originally designed for the Moscow Small Enterprises Register.

The Aladdin SQL tools for user rights allocation and protection against unauthorized access were developed in accordance with regulators’ requirements; it has successfully passed the international insurance companies tests. Its “extended security” version has been certified for the use in the biggest Russian banks Sberbank and Vneshtorgbank. The Aladdin SQL kernel allows the complete recording of all meaningful users operations.
