Get more control with fewer systems

Amid mounting fee and revenue pressure, there’s no longer room for unnecessary overhead, prompting firms to cut costs and simplify operating environments. This has led to an overwhelming trend to towards IT system consolidation.

The investment management industry today is challenged with low yields, a high degree of reporting demands and manual workarounds.

Removing inefficiencies isn’t a choice but a necessity. Yet many investment managers still operate in a patchwork of single-purpose IT systems that aren’t connected, where data doesn’t flow freely and isn’t available in real time.

This patchwork of systems leads to:

  • Increased time-to-market for new products
  • Difficulty supporting regulatory changes
  • Inability to record events in transaction life-cycle or support entire book of business
  • Higher data reconciliation errors and inconsistencies
  • Poor or inaccurate overview of exposure and positions
  • Increased manual labor costs

We believe that your IT infrastructure should give you agility, efficiency and control. With SimCorp Dimension, you can consolidate your investment management IT systems and ensure you achieve your growth ambitions – no matter where your business moves.

 

Three key reasons to consolidate

Battling the disparate system landscape

Consolidation

We have achieved a much simpler systems architecture, having retired and decommissioned several internal applications as well as several serviced solutions.
Kjell Johan Nordgard, Global Head of Systems and Data, Norges Bank Investment Management, Journal

System consolidation isn’t achieved overnight

With SimCorp Dimension, you can consolidate your investment management system gradually to minimize risk. Our software is built in modules so you can start the journey in your front, middle or back office, and with only a few functions.

SimCorp Dimension’s software modules naturally operate with your existing single-purpose systems, but offer the potential for full integration. So, depending on your business goals and operational needs, you can start where you want, proceed as you need, and at a pace that suits you.
