Virtual Investment Analytics is the most flexible, scalable, and comprehensive investment automation platform available in the marketplace. Opturo achieved this innovation by making efficient data management a top priority and is reflected in the platform’s decoupled architecture.

Virtual Investment Analytics (VIA), is Opturo’s proprietary Enterprise Data Management platform that performs on-the-fly analysis to provide advanced solutions to critical and long-standing financial problems. VIA is able to meet clients’ needs without imposing a footprint on the client systems and without the need for expensive systems, implementations or disruptions to client workflow.

VIA has an innovative modular architecture and offers an extremely flexible and scalable platform to streamline and automate all investment processes. It offers the rapid deployment of Opturo solutions while significantly reducing implementation timelines and costs. VIA’s open system design allows unparalleled flexibility and customization and allows clients’ unique business logic and requirements to be built into the platform both efficiently and effectively.

Firms that want to free-up resources currently dedicated to data intensive manual processes can leverage the VIA platform to reduce operating costs and reallocate human capital to revenue creating activities. VIA provides clients with a robust and scalable platform to meet existing challenges, but also facilitates future changes in downstream/upstream system infrastructure that can be handled seamlessly.

The Opturo Advantage


Extraction, Transformation & Loading

Clients can leverage VIA’s ETL (Extraction, Transformation, and Loading) capability to streamline and automate a variety of data aggregation processes. For instance, market data from vendor files can be uploaded into the data warehouse in a matter of minutes without the need to write specialized scripts.

Business Rules Engine

Each client confronts specific business and operational challenges. VIA provides firms with the ability to construct and maintain a rules engine in order to help implement and automate business logic and requirements.

Process Flow Toolkit

One of the strengths of the VIA platform is empowering the existing human capital within each client and providing those professionals with the tools to provide first level support. Integrated Development Environment (IDE) provides clients with the tools to design and monitor workflow processes.

Custom Reporting

In addition to an array of standard reports, Opturo leverages the VIA platform to build and automate the creation of custom reports to meet each client’s specific reporting requirements, whether related to management, regulatory reporting, etc. The Opturo Envision reporting engine offers interactive visualization focused on customized business intelligence.

Data Validation & Reconciliation

The VIA platform includes data management modules which facilitate data reconciliation, as well as a data validation engine, which allows users to test and report on all data brought into VIA. Alerts and exports can be set based on a set of conditions that make up a validation rule, and data passed through this engine will exit unchanged after all tests are run.
