NIBC LEVERAGES EFRONT’S PRODUCT HOSTING SERVICES

In 2015, NIBC decided to orient its IT strategy towards hosted software solutions, moving away from on premise models. At that point in time, there were more than 300 systems and applications running on premises. As a leading bank, though, NIBC was faced with the highest levels of regulation and security compliance. In order to implement a hosted software solution, NIBC’s IT team would need a detailed knowledge of the different systems involved.

In 2015, NIBC decided to orient its IT strategy towards hosted software solutions, moving away from on premise models.

In order to implement a hosted software solution, NIBC’s IT team would need a detailed knowledge of the different systems involved.

eFront and NIBC proactively partnered from the beginning in order to prevent the following risks associated with a transition to SaaS solutions:

Performance: Lack of access to services due to Internet outages
Security: Data security risks dependent on data storage
Time to Market: Time to deploy the software
Costs: Management of the total cost of infrastructure and operations
NIBC is using eFront Invest GP, hosted by eFront. Within this solution, NIBC uses the following eFront services and modules:

  • eFront Hosting: eFront software is installed on eFront’s managed infrastructure
  • eFront Core: CRM functionalities
  • eFront Investment: Tracking and reporting on alternative investment transactions
  • eFront GL: Management of alternative investment accounting activities
  • eFront Report Designer: Creation and delivery of tailored reports

“We did not notice any hiccups anywhere during this project.”
Joris van Dijk, Head of Operations Equity and Funds.

“The system is reliable, secured and easy to upgrade.”
Sjoerd Buis, Vice President Fund Administration, Alternative Investments
