We advance the business objectives of our clients with technology and insight.
We needed to move quickly to keep up with the growing demands of our business and engaged Risk Focus because of its successful track record with migrating mission-critical systems to AWS.
Due to business developments, we needed to quickly evacuate our data center. Risk Focus moved us quickly into the cloud and re-engineered our development and deployment processes, allowing us to become more agile and increase delivery velocity. Moreover, they helped us deliver our first SaaS offering and onboard our first clients quickly and seamlessly. The key differentiator that Risk Focus brought to the table is the unique combination of deep domain knowledge coupled with technical expertise and delivery excellence.
Given the extreme time pressure that we were under to deliver a mission-critical platform, together with Risk Focus we decided to use AWS for Development, QA, and UAT, which proved to be the right move, allowing us to hit the ground running. The Risk Focus team created a strong partnership with my team to deliver the project.
Partnership is crucial. By choosing the right people…that are deeply technical, [Risk Focus] allowed us to shorten what would have been a two-year project and deliver it in one.
Instinet has a long history of innovation and are always looking to adapt new technologies. We connected with Risk Focus to help accelerate our efforts to migrate our platforms to AWS and adopt a more nimble DevOps-first approach. They have been able to leverage their unique technology expertise and understanding of financial services to help us transform our tech operational processes for sustainable future growth.
We have been partnering with Risk Focus on various initiatives since 2012, and we are excited to have extended our partnership to develop the APIX™ platform. The platform has been extremely successful at Tudor and we trust that Risk Focus will deliver the same success for other capital markets clients.
DTCC believes that the use of this [Risk Focus–built] tool internally will enhance quality assurance and pre-UAT testing within the GTR service, enabling us to improve the roll-out of our ingestion-related changes. Furthermore, the use of the tool by our Operations team will assist in resolving client queries as well as enhance the GTR client experience.
