NRI launches first private cloud solution for investment managers in Japan
Nomura Research Institute (NRI) has launched the T-Monolix Arena Private Cloud Service, aimed at asset managers in Japan.
Arena Private is the only service in Japan designed to host all IT applications and tailored to the specific investment vehicles of asset managers.
Arena Private is a part of the NRI T-STAR product suite, the proprietary technology solutions which offer more than 100 asset management firms and pension funds complete front-to-back office support. The private cloud technology provides a seamless connection between investment managers’ infrastructures and NRI’s industry standard infrastructure service, T-STAR, as well as third-party data vendors and BPO vendors.
“Arena Private empowers investment management firms to make more strategic decisions and is scalable to fit the needs of a wide range of institutions,” says Katsuhiko Fujita, senior managing director, NRI. “Through this offering, we are keeping capital expenditures for the asset management firms low, enabling clients to avoid investing a majority of their budget into IT assets, which can be very costly.”
The Arena Private solution lifts investment managers’ IT software and hardware from their data centres to NRI’s secured private cloud. NRI’s private cloud is hosted in its data centres, enabling asset managers to focus on the core business rather than spending valuable human resources operating and maintaining IT assets. The solution quickly configures a specific user access control to BPO services and helps investment managers to adopt the BPO service in a secured environment.
“Additionally, through NRI’s business standards, we ensure that all required IT governance rules are met, while providing robust BCP and disaster recovery offerings, relieving the asset managers of the burden these compliance mandates can create,” says Fujita. “We understand the unique challenges that Japanese investment managers face and as regional experts, we are well positioned to help these organisations address these issues through our award-winning technology and consultation services.”
