Production Support & Technical Relationship Representative - Enterprise Technology Solutions - Tokyo
Posted Oct 17, 2019 - Requisition No. 79050
Financial firms rely on dozens of critical systems to develop and execute strategies, evaluate risk, track P&L, manage sales & trading and handle settlement. The constant challenge is the complexity of integrating these systems so that data moves correctly across the enterprise, at higher speeds and lower costs. Building solutions in-house can take a large team and a larger investment. Integrators and consultants may not understand a firm’s business model or data. That’s where we come in.
Here in the Enterprise Technology Solutions team, we help firms manage that complexity. Providing common tools, services and expertise, we enable firms to simplify technology relationships, which ultimately drives lower total cost of ownership, faster time to market and improved transparency. With our track record in delivering hosted solutions and our understanding of our customers’ needs, we believe we are uniquely positioned to help clients with this challenge.
