A system for tracing operations during application execution and executing the traced operations on a second processing unit. The tracing involves identifying attempts to execute software that performs particular functions that would benefit from execution on a particular piece of non-compatible hardware and, rather than executing the code, recording the requests and the data inputs to each of the requests. At a point during execution of the software system such as, for example, when either a memory threshold has been exceeded for recording the requested code and inputs, or results are needed for the requested code, the corresponding code executable on the non-compatible hardware is identified and executed. Thereafter, the results from the execution on the non-compatible hardware are received and processing continues.

An authentication and payment system for paying a supplier via a network may include a non-transitory computer readable storage medium having program logic stored thereon having a code for an authentication and payment application executable by a processor of a computing device. The code may be programmed to perform a step of receiving a first set of specific data elements from a payer regarding an authorized purchase by the payer from the supplier. The code may be further programmed to receive a second set of specific data elements from the supplier. If the first set of specific data elements matches at least a portion of second set of specific data elements, the code may be programmed to generate and send a single-use number to the supplier. The single-use number may be usable as a credit card number for only one purchase.

A system for securities lending data management aggregates securities lending transaction data across a plurality of firms. The data comprises records including parameters for securities lending transactions entered into by individual firms. The system queries the data in order to identify instances wherein for a record of a transaction engaged by one firm, there is no corresponding record for another firm indicating a counterparty. The system compares instances of such orphan records in order to identify instances wherein the parameters for an orphan record corresponds to the parameters of another orphan record with the exception of perhaps one or two parameter values. The system outputs a listing of such instances and receives input confirming or invalidating that the identified orphan records correspond to the same transaction.
