Integrations

Build API gateways and microservices to increase the organization’s ability to provide cross-unit and cross-application functions.

Through the use of microservices, business groups could take advantage of applications and assets previously available to only one group or the other and could improve their collaborations on hybrid projects that involve both groups’ assets.

Two-Speed Architecture

The two-speed model puts desired business capabilities as a central factor for determining which parts of the enterprise architecture—that is, which technologies, working groups, and processes—should be on a fast track and which should remain steady state; bringing order and accountability to digital-transformation programs. 

By using a two-speed IT model, instead of deploying a “big bang” approach to change, a company could carefully stage its migration to new technologies and digital ways of working, thus mitigating its risk of failure. 

CI/CD and Data Pipelines

Organizations get significant value by adapting CI/CD and Data Pipelines.

Improvement in time to market

Reduce the average number of days from code completion to live production

Reduction in cycle time

Eliminate wait time, rework and non-value add work through standard processes and automation

Improvement in productivity

Reduce the number of DevOps handoffs per processing activity through improved development and operations communication

Observability

Being able to see problems before they affect functionality, being able to look at the bigger picture of how applications are working

3 main pillars of observability: 

Metrics are a great and easily implemented way to get started with observability, and the data they provide helps start the context-building process.

Traces can be used to quickly determine code behavior and pinpoint many performance issues, and also give you a lot of control over what you measure in your functions, and are great for recording data specific to the problem your function is trying to solve

Logs tend to provide a lot of data that can’t be easily captured in metrics, and often provide a lot more context to those trying to debug an issue in their code

Decision Support System

A common interface for data, analytics, alerts/notifications, and decisions workflow operations across the value chain, providing the consolidated view needed for improved decision-making risk management and compliance as well as reducing dependency on third-party administrators.

New Information sources

The holy grail in finance has always been finding new, authentic and superior sources of information to gain competitive advantage.

We help asset managers manifest this quest by tranforming public and internal unstructured data sources to structured data enhancing their models

Anomaly Detection

Anomalies in data must be quickly identified to take appropriate action, unaddressed it could lead to incorrect or sub-optimal decisions

An anomaly detection solution that can seamlessly integrate with your applications and data pipelines system will significantly enhance the confidence in the information used in decision making

Analytics Framework

The framework to build advanced analytics, industrial-scale solutions to exploit data for authentic business insights, and vastly improved decision making.
Best Insights live at the boundaries between data sets

Process Automation

Automation takes the robot out of human
Automation is not a tale of machines replacing humans, but of machines complementing humans
ROI of automation implementations varies between 30 and as much as 200 percent in the first year

Smart workflows

Reduce the interface complexity of the systems via a hierarchical Web Service stack that reaches from the lowest technical granularity needed to the domain-specific granularity needed by the domain experts

Auto Reconciliation

Reconciliation for investment managers means that their records reflect their needs by accurately accounting and adjusting for differences with custodians and/or fund accountants.
With flexible technology and customized interfaces, this can be achieved daily through a highly automated process, placing less stress on human resources while providing other benefits.

Digital Assistants

Communicate with people, systems and things with a conversational UI that lives in the enterprise communication channels
Interact when needed – proactively, scheduled, on-demand
Complete simple tasks to highly complex workflows

Solutions & Insights

RIG

The solution that enables the building of new structured datasets from unstructured text data to power up the models and/or to make end-to-end automation possible

RIG is a data pipeline that transforms unstructured text data to the structured data. Businesses can leverage the data buried in various documents and tie them with their operational and analytic systems. The RIG is used both in the context of end to end automation and generating better decision making insights
