THE DELTΔ CONTINUUM EXPLAINED
StatPro and Delta employ a lot of clever people, so you expect them to produce good things. But this time they have really done something remarkable. We thought we would have to choose between one platform or the other when StatPro took over the running of Delta, but it seems we can actually give our clients the best of both worlds.
Delta is renowned for its excellence in fixed income risk and attribution, not to mention how it helps clients with liability driven investments and regulatory tasks such as Solvency II. Functionally it is superb. Revolution is also a well established, hi-tech,cloud-based performance and risk platform, but it is newer and different to Delta's technology. So it looked like we would have to add the Delta functionality to Revolution bit-by-bit.
However, the two teams have found a way to reuse the vast majority of Delta code in Revolution. The result? Delta continues as it is and will quickly transform itself into Revolution. If you are a client of Delta, you will hardly notice as there will be no change to your inputs or outputs and the GUI will remain the same but with more on offer. If you are a client of Revolution, you will soon be able to access the wealth of Delta's functionality inside Revolution, no need to change your inputs or outputs.
So Delta is just going to get bigger and better - the Delta Continuum.
