The company is a leading provider of post-trade financial services—the clearing and settlement activities that happen after a securities trade is complete. Customers include many of the world’s largest banks and broker/dealers.
When the network carries tens of millions of transactions daily, even minor slowdowns can have a major impact on the business. “Our customers and internal stakeholders need be confident that we are on top of network issues so we can remediate before users feel any impact,” says the vice president of infrastructure services. As transaction volume grew and the company migrated more applications and data to a major public cloud, the infrastructure services team identified several areas for improvement. Teams needed better visibility into network and application performance and a way to map the complex infrastructure. The aging networkmanagement solution had become expensive to support, required extensive customization, and was difficult to use. Solutions with overlapping features led to unnecessary costs.
