The Capital Markets Center of Excellence—with locations in Paris, Madrid, New York, Mumbai and Shanghai—provides infrastructure and dedicated services for a successful, industrialized delivery of our capital markets specific offerings.
For our Trading Services, the center provides training (online training and documentation), research (live software playgrounds) and development capabilities (integrated development environments), as well the development of proprietary Accenture assets such as solution accelerators. A few examples of the assets developed around the software of our alliance partners within Accenture Trading Services are included below:
Calypso—The center contains our Calypso installation and configuration framework, an interface framework and a comprehensive test and quality framework. Dedicated Accenture-developed assets include an automated online/offline workflow testing tool and a Calypso Fast-Track solution development environment that enables a quick start with our clients' Calypso projects.
Murex—Accenture has developed, among others, an estimation tool to quickly estimate the amount of work needed for a specific Murex implementation project. This tool also delivers a work plan and can help optimize the scope of a specific project with predefined Murex tasks. Another estimation tool has been developed for application outsourcing projects covering maintenance and enhancement tasks. Based on a specific client challenge, this tool provides an estimate for the required team size and the skill pyramid needed.

Additional accelerators include our ready-to-use development environments (based on both Kondor+ 2.6 and Kondor+ 3.0) that allow a quick start with our clients' Reuters Kondor+ projects.
