Processing Big Data
While others just talk about big data, for us it is an integral part of the advancement and evolution of our indexing platform. Smart data solutions are essential to retain our independence and technological edge and this is the exclusive mandate of our data research and development center of expertise.
Using the latest techniques in artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data and natural language processing, our data scientists are focused on sophisticated numeric and semantic-based data mining. Developing solutions for information and data extraction, as well as decision support. Transforming heterogeneous information sources into usable and accessible data. Innovating and designing novel ways to integrate cutting-edge methods into our index engineering solutions.
Turning Complexity into Simplicity
Our state-of-the-art calculation engine is at the heart of what we do. And our dedicated technology team is the genius behind this, responsible for the infrastructure, development, operation and maintenance of our IT engine.
High-performance, resilient and scalable platforms are our specialty. We combine expertise in organizing large volumes of information, integrating data providers and resolving complex calculations in a heartbeat.
The agile development environment is managed in a way that closely aligns development specialists with business teams, creating a highly effective and efficient development process and leading to a high degree of flexibility and rapid evolution in a controlled and extremely robust manner.
Solactive Unified Technology Platform
A well-resolved and consistently applied technology framework is key to our ability to deliver solutions across the business. Accordingly, we have built the Solactive Unified Technology Platform which sets standards and provides a coherent toolset, not only for the technology team, but also for the deployment of end-user tools complementing the core indexing activities.
Small-scale and nimble applications can be rapidly deployed within a harmonized and highly structured environment. When united with the power of our index calculation engine, this provides an unbeatable combination.
Technology, Made in Germany
Security, integrity and availability are the cornerstones of any information business, and the design and operation of our technology infrastructure reflects this across all of its different components.
Primary and secondary data centers, geographically separated and continuously monitored from our own Operations Center. Online monitoring of business processes and network traffic with automated alerts and resource management tools.
The network architecture provides redundant paths for all connections, with multiple levels of physical and digital security, encryption, and intrusion detection and prevention. And, of course, we have well-established and robust contingency solutions, data backups and mirroring, and immediate failover capabilities.
All in a day’s work for the German index engineering specialists!
