China's Shanghai Wind Information Selects IBM to Deliver Leading Cloud-Based Risk Service

New cloud-based analytics capabilities address Chinese regulatory requirements and help users make risk-adjusted investment decisions

SHANGHAI and ARMONK, N.Y., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Shanghai Wind Information (Wind Info) has selected IBM to help provide its users in China with new cloud-based analytics tools to better manage financial risks and meet regulatory requirements.

This partnership builds on IBM's expertise working with global financial institutions to help address challenging regulatory requirements in risk.

Wind Info, a leading service provider of financial data, research, information and software, serves more than 90 percent of the financial enterprises in the Chinese market, including securities, fund management firms, insurance companies, banks and investment firms. As the leading provider of trading terminals in China, its technology is present in virtually every bank and asset manager in the country.

Chinese regulatory authorities are now requiring more sophistication in risk monitoring and reporting to ensure stability and protect the Chinese financial system in an increasingly complex environment. To meet these evolving regulations, Wind Info needs advanced risk management capabilities for its Wind Terminal systems, which are used by traders to buy and sell stocks, bonds and other financial products.

Wind Info will incorporate IBM's cloud-based risk management software, IBM Algo Risk Service on Cloud, and the locally installed IBM Algo One Risk Aggregator directly into its Trading Terminals, creating a hybrid solution that will conduct sophisticated risk data processing in the cloud while keeping all client position data protected and confidential within the boundaries of China, an important requirement of Chinese law. The new solution is expected to be available later this year.

"As Chinese financial markets continue to grow not only in size but also complexity, investors from all around the world are looking to invest in this region, and we want to provide them with tools of the highest caliber to enable them to fulfill regulatory requirements and to help maximize returns," said Jin Jian, Vice President, Shanghai Wind Information. "Working with IBM, Wind Info is excited to bring new innovative services to our clients and help pave the way for financial trading success in China."

"With its extensive Chinese-specific market data and IBM's risk solutions and expertise, Wind Info is in the unique position to deliver a risk service focused on the specific characteristics of the financial markets in China," said Dr. Andrew Aziz, Director of Risk Analytics, IBM.  "We're pleased to be teaming with Wind Info to help their clients optimize their trading decisions."

Integrating IBM risk analytics software into Wind Terminals in China will provide a fully customizable, integrated risk framework for advanced portfolio and risk analytics that is first-of-a-kind in China, helping clients confidently address regulatory requirements, improve investor confidence, formulate investment decisions and overall, help make financial markets safer. Together, IBM and Wind Info will help provide their clients with world-class financial risk management capabilities to meet the demands of an increasingly complex business environment.

"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads. Yet many barriers remain until we can fully realize the opportunities and benefits from the convergence of machines and devices with Big Data and the cloud, including interoperability, data security and privacy.
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The industrial software market has treated data with the mentality of “collect everything now, worry about how to use it later.” We now find ourselves buried in data, with the pervasive connectivity of the (Industrial) Internet of Things only piling on more numbers. There’s too much data and not enough information. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Bob Gates, Global Marketing Director, GE’s Intelligent Platforms business, to discuss how realizing the power of IoT, software developers are now focused on understanding how industrial data can create intelligence for industrial operations. Imagine ...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
