Global Fintech requires cloud modernization to deliver enhanced value to financial service clients


Client Challenge:
A large global Fintech organization headquartered in New York providing Capital Market technology to financial institutions with advanced risk capabilities across asset classes such as; risk identification and analysis, trade lifecycle event handling, complex derivatives pricing and market data management had a need to modernize their IT infrastructure.

The company footprint was expanding globally and the client had an on-premise IT infrastructure that was not delivering the performance and scale they needed to keep teams working efficiently. In addition to requiring more IT modernization, the teams also needed transparency into cost and budgeting.  Last but not least with a shifting regulatory environment, the client was facing more data privacy laws and regulations in region and in-country. They needed an outside team that could help guide them to meet the compliance and governance requirements swiftly not manually.

Digital Edge delivered a digital transformation strategy that would re-engineer their existing on-premise IT infrastructure and provide them both the modernization and transparency they were seeking. The client deployed an AWS SaaS Infrastructure as a Service platform (SaaS) which provided institutional grade technology. Digital Edge also provided a comprehensive compliance roadmap to guide them through the cloud migration leveraging automation tools that reduced the time it would normally take with a manual process.
