SimCorp Dimension as a Service

Application Management

SimCorp uses ITIL-based processes when managing the platforms and cloud services; from development to production for internal and external purposes. Our operational setup ensures that incidents are recorded, prioritized and solved in a standardized manner, and that all such events are documented. Strict access management procedures ensure that only appropriately screened employees can access data, and that their access matches their work-related need. Further, employee access is promptly revoked once it is no longer required.

Our change management procedure ensures that changes go through a flow that includes prioritization, test, approval before being deployed to production environments, and that all steps are appropriately documented. Similarly, all incidents and monitoring events are recorded and tracked through to resolution.

The relevant controls described above are covered by our SOC2 type 2 report. This report, prepared by a reputable and independent third party, is designed to assure clients of a secure and controlled operations environment, and typically covers client needs related to service provider compliance reporting. The report is available to clients and prospects – please reach out to your account representative if you wish to obtain a copy.

Furthermore, there may also be restrictions to a specific geographic location, such as within the European Union (EU).

We do not replicate or move your business data (e.g. transactional data) between regions unless on direct clients requests.

Vendor and platform management
