Blue-sky thinking for innovation for the financial industry
Though the winds of change are uncertain, moving to the Cloud seems inevitable for the world of finance. SimCorp is a leading global provider of investment management software solutions. Based in Denmark, their innovative solutions are used by preeminent financial organizations and investment managers worldwide. SimCorp has set out to invest in cloud-based solutions for customers to access directly, and approached Cogniance to partner up and co-create the design and development of the first SimCorp Cloud offering. The outcome? A new cloud-based KPI Dashboard for valued customers.
A wealth of joint experience, for a wealth management solution
SimCorp tackles ever-changing industry demands head on, helping clients to stay ahead of the curve. Nearly half the world’s top 100 asset managers use their solutions. SimCorp has a tradition for in-house development of all core parts of their offering. However, for the KPI Dashboard, SimCorp chose to partner with Cogniance to get new inspiration on digital design and scalable cloud solutions.
Cloudy forecast: collaborative product management and digital design
SimCorp’s core system, SimCorp Dimension, supports the complete investment management value chain and a broad range of financial instruments. The newly designed cloud solution must connect seamlessly with SimCorp Dimension. Cogniance worked alongside SimCorp to conquer the complexities, and working iteratively, the KPI Dashboard front-end, data analytics, and operations were mastered. The collaboration ensured critical data security, architecture design, and integration. The first backend delivery of the KPI Dashboard solution was released three months into the project and the front-end a bit later. SimCorp’s customers now benefit from a KPI Dashboard hosted in the Cloud, with direct access to benchmark data.
Going forward, SimCorp has a trusted consultant in Cogniance. One who understands their products and services, and shares their vision of innovation. Will the financial sector embrace the inevitable cloud future? Probably. And SimCorp's journey into the Cloud is leading the way.
The benefits
SimCorp remains firmly above the competition, with unique cutting-edge technology. Investment managers gain direct access to priceless benchmarking data, any time. And SimCorp has a strategic, trusted go-to partner in Cogniance.
Investing in the future
