Mindful of the volume of news it has been generating recently, Sun Microsystems UK combined the launch of its Sun 4/110 workstations in the UK with a series of financial announcements that had been overshadowed by UniForum it also provided a good opportunity to show off its new CityofLondon based financial offices to journalists. Sun claims to have had great success selling its systems to the financial world recently, despite Meltdown Monday, and it has added 20 financial software products to its catalogue since it began its latest push into the financial arena at the Securities Industry Association conference last year. New products include the Shark realtime quotation and financial information systems from Wang Financial Services; FXTrader from Berkeley Investment Technology; and the InTruder investment banking system from Digital Solutions Inc. Sun products are now being sold into the financial world for traderworkstations, frontoffice applications, portfolio management, and system integration. Sun also revealed that US broker Paine Webber had bought $400,000 of Sun3 workstations in order to develop a prototype trading floor support system that will integrate the workstationbased system into multivendor networks via Network File System. Additionally, Market Vision Corp announced plans to offer its Athena Trading Analysis Services software on Sun workstations.
