Digitalization, standardization, automation: these topics are currently important drivers in the financial industry. This is especially true for fund and private equity managers who are increasingly relying on digital setups. A leading partner here is AssetMetrix – and therefore also Airlock.
Good information is becoming increasingly important in the financial world. And with it, good IT. But the better the information, the more sensitive it is, especially in private equity. Because when venture investors receive relevant financial figures from entrepreneurs and venture capitalists transfer large sums of money, both the communication and the interfaces should be completely secure. That’s why AssetMetrix relies on microservices – and when it comes to security, on the Airlock Microgateway.
There are many arguments in favor of a modern architecture with microservices – such as fast scaling, standardized interfaces, and the decoupling of individual services. These arguments also convinced AssetMetrix, as the company’s Solution Architect, Rui Santos, explains.
Our customers manage hundreds of pieces of corporate data and communicate with thousands of contacts every day – and they do so with completely different IT systems. That’s why we chose an agile IT infrastructure, running microservices as containers in an OpenShift platform.
