DECIDE's powerful and modular architecture provides the ideal foundation for designing solutions for other business areas within the finance industry and successfully implementing them with a short time-to-market. The product line was supplemented within this framework by DECIDE Exchange. It is a powerful, comprehensive exchange platform, that supports different market models as plug-ins. A data distribution module is part of this solution and enables the distribution of market data to connected providers and financial institutions. The solution is currently being used successfully at a stock exchange in Germany.

Blockchain technology plays a central role in the medium and long term in the development of new strategies and business models as the securities process chain is being digitalized.

As part of a proof of concept, pdv Financial Software GmbH, along with its sister company Ponton, has developed a peer-to-peer OTC trading platform for energy cash contracts based on Blockchain technology and the DECIDE technology stack. This has been tested since 2017 and is currently being transitioned to active operation. The project is called "Enerchain". There are currently about 40 participants from the European energy sector with their trading departments on this platform.

Based on developed concepts and innovative technologies, analog OTC trading platforms can be implemented quickly for other financial instruments. Possibly other asset classes, such as OTC trading of bonds/bond portfolios, the process chains of the promissory note market, as well as for the trading of derivative OTC contracts could follow.
