Symphony showcases its community innovations at flagship conference, including interoperability with Microsoft Teams

–News Direct–

Symphony, the leading markets infrastructure and technology platform, will be interoperable with Microsoft Teams, it was announced at the companys flagship event Symphony Innovate in New York on April 18th.

The solution demonstrated two distinct capabilities to connect users on Symphony securely with Teams: connecting internal Teams users natively through Symphonys directory and bi-directional chats with external contacts on WhatsApp, SMS and WeChat, through the embedded Symphony Connect app, complementing the firms existing video integration.

For the first time, Symphony showcased the power of AI when used with its Cloud9 Trader Voice product. The new generative AI-powered and AI noise-suppressed solution provides high-accuracy transcription and intelligence to voice trading interactions, extracting detailed analysis with models trained in trading floor jargon, informing strategic decisions, improving trader efficiency, and simplifying customer risk management. Through the use of AI, the solution supports deal tagging, allowing users to extract deal-related information from voice calls such as price, quantity, and asset class, to build a comprehensive, concise transaction summary. Symphonys specialized language models are being used to identify relevant keywords, phrases, or context to mark a conversation as a deal confirmation call. Video.

With the T+1 settlement cycle fast approaching, the operations directory showcased the ease of finding and connecting with peers, expediting issue resolution, and exception management on Symphony. The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation took to the stage to help share Symphonys embedded collaboration platform (ECP) integration with Central Trade Match (CTM), DTCCs platform to allocate and centrally match transactions globally. This integration – currently being piloted – will allow users to communicate with counterparties directly, reducing context switching and manual data entry to streamline post-trade matching and confirmation, an important aspect of T+1. Video. Another five ECP use cases were shown on stage in a clear validation of the relevance of Symphonys interoperability play to the industry.

CEO Brad Levy said: Innovate is the forum where Symphonys industry-leading customers and partners get to showcase the innovations built on our platform. We are proud to be connecting people and companies in a distributed, flexible, and interoperable way, through the right tech stack and infrastructure. He explained: In a time where firms must choose to disrupt or be disrupted, Symphony has the right technology to drive innovation and move with precision in a time of uncertainty. CEO keynote video.

Symphonys new virtual number solution was introduced as a way for firms to provide employees with a convenient, centralized, and compliance-friendly identity for communication across mobile voice, SMS, and social messaging applications. Symphony has partnered with Umony, a telecommunications compliance specialist, to capture and archive mobile communications, while summarizing call transcripts, analyzing sentiment, and flagging compliance risks using Umony trained LLMs for true end-to-end, GenAI-powered communications compliance.
