ADIA leverages technology to increase operational agility and efficiency.
With more than 40 years of experience, the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) is one of the world’s leading institutional investors.
ADIA continually assesses how the external environment, and the business of investing is changing, looking beyond passing trends and market cycles to focus on how ADIA can evolve and prepare for the future.
This long-term outlook requires an operating model that embraces the latest technology to enable greater agility, scale and efficiency.
ADIA has continued to adapt to the evolving nature of the global investment landscape since its creation in 1976, and we recognize that the pace of change today is faster than ever before. To sustain success in this dynamic environment, we have pursued numerous initiatives aimed at increasing agility and efficiency, including the adoption of new technologies to build new operational capabilities.
A core element of this ongoing, multi-year project has been to develop an operating model powered by a cloud infrastructure and services to help scale and secure investment operations. SimCorp's SaaS platform plays an important part in ADIA’s consolidation of its operations across multiple asset classes, with its data management services ensuring high quality data.
ADIA expects to achieve significant optimization in IT administration, development and testing time. In doing so, ADIA aims to continually intensify the pace and agility of execution, while simplifying and optimizing the overall investment transaction technology architecture. A prerequisite for those objectives is a solid data foundation across all asset classes with a modern cloud infrastructure that facilitates ongoing innovation.
