Clarient Global migrates to IBM Cloud, uses VMware  

IBM Corporation

Clarient Global, a financial service firm, has selected VMware Cloud Foundation on IBM Cloud.

Clarient is a joint venture by BNY Mellon, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, State Street and The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC).

With this new implementation, Clarient has enhanced its Clarient Entity Hub application with VMware Cloud Foundation on IBM Cloud running on bare metal servers.

Clarient Entity Hub allows users to securely upload, maintain and share information about legal entities through a secure, easy-to-use interface.

The platform automates the validation of client data and documentation, providing users with greater transparency and control, as well as improved risk management capabilities.

In addition to this private cloud solution,  Clarient has integrated with IBM’s Business Process Management (BPM) to provide clients with even greater data and process visibility and management.

“As the Clarient Entity Hub community grows, we continually assess ways to further enhance the solution workflow in order to improve the overall client experience and increase processing efficiencies. IBM’s BPM solution, in conjunction with the VMWare Cloud Foundation on IBM Cloud solution, will help Clarient to achieve these requirements while reducing the cost of platform maintenance,” said Natalia Kory, CTO, Clarient.

In addition to flexibility, the IBM Cloud provides Clarient with low latency network that allows for near real-time communication between datacenter locations, making it easier to keep replication sites in sync at no charge for network usage.

“By leveraging a partnership with IBM and VMware, Clarient is able to extend its global and controllable infrastructure footprint,” said Bill Karpovich, General Manager, IBM Cloud Platform.

With a global network of close to 50 cloud data centers in 17 countries spanning 6 continents, IBM is emerging as a top 3 player in cloud across public, private and hybrid.

In IDC’s latest Worldwide Semi-Annual Public Cloud Services Tracker, the IT major is ranked No. 2 in the overall server compute IaaS market.
