DSTi implement data warehousing solution at Swiss Re

Zurich – 29 March 2007

DSTi’s Investment Data Platform on Oracle has been implemented at Swiss Re Asset Management. Swiss Re chose DSTi’s specialist asset management technology to build an investment data hub to reduce the existing complex data architecture. The solution is comprised of a central data warehouse with inputs from multiple sources and outputs to multiple destination applications and systems. Swiss Re expects to benefit from streamlined data processing and improved business reporting.

Heinz Burla, IT Business Partner at Swiss Re Asset Management said, “The former landscape of asset management was complicated, with multiple point-to-point connections that led to duplication of effort, reconciliation needs, and complex tasks when upgrading systems. We selected DSTi’s Investment Data Platform to act as a data hub to provide a cohesive solution through a single store of investment information. Following an extensive tender process and proof of concept, we chose DSTi, on the strength of their investment data model and our experience in joint implementations. We are content with the results of the data hub, which has lead to real processing efficiencies.”

DSTi’s European Sales Director, Hugh Evans, said, “We have worked closely with Swiss Re Asset Management to deliver a solution to link seamlessly to their existing systems and to enable their business applications globally to integrate with and use the data hub. Our Investment Data Platform was developed specifically to meet the needs of the asset management industry and is both scalable and flexible.”
