Regulatory Reporting

2018-04-26

K3 is a good application. We report trades in Europe and the United States.

Pros

We get a full audit trail of our reporting activity.

Cons

European support is getting better but we would love to seem more. Else there is no reason to give any negative comment.

Our Data Process

2018-01-08

Easily connected to lots of challenging applications. Great ETL.

Pros

We looked at everything from custom, in-house build to drag drop type solutions.

Cons

Pricing can get complicated. But, our all in cost is very reasonable. I asked one of their employees about this over beers and they admitted on the initial sale they are trying to figure out what kind of client you are going to be. Those who have a firm idea about what they want get a much better deal.

I have had a wonderful experience with this software and the people behind it.

2018-03-04

K3 offers a wide variety of adapters and a platform that can easily move data between systems.

Pros

The cost is worth it as creating an in-house solution requires specific skills (higher employee costs) and can lead to poorly designed desperate solutions (multiple interfaces written in various languages and styles by different employees over time).

I have used K3 at a couple different clients, where my company supplies IT resources.

2018-01-16

Saves a tremendous amount of man power.

Pros

Mapping Data in any industry involves a host of business analysts and programmers.

Cons

I don't have any Cons at this time. I would say, that I think this type of software is hard for companies to adopt.

K3 Integration

2018-04-13

Pros

The idea is basically giving the non-coding people doing the ability to maintain and control integration.

Cons

None come to mind. We've used K3 with RabbitMQ and Kafka. K3 is JMS friendly, so i don't know why you couldn't use any message bus.

Excellent product, incredible knowledge in the team and very easy to work with

2018-03-21

Pros

Shifts the dynamics away from IT and to the business for a long-standing 'grey area' Clearly defined and focused product, does what it does exceptionally well Easy to understand and use, flexible while being sufficiently ring-fenced Exceptional integration capabilities out of the box Well thought out architecture, clear roadmap guided by a vision of what customers actually need - i.e.

I have not seen another tool that is as intuitive and covers the breadth of integration potential that K3 does

K3 can easily customize xpath and templates for obscure xml. Its intuitive enough that i could figure most out myself.

Pros

Currently connecting 7 different applications. Setup is simple.

Cons

I would like to be able to add my own JAR files at some point. You might be able to do this but I have not figured it out.

Building a Single Source of Truth

K3 is the tool we use to minimize risk.

Pros

I've been around the IT world long enough to know that enterprise data warehousing projects are a recipe for career disaster.

Cons

No drawbacks to K3. The learning curve is very short. No complex coding required. We've freed up a bunch of developers using this thing.
