Modernize Japan’s financial services sector

To improve operational efficiency, Japanese financial institutions urgently needed to modernize their legacy systems. The industry faced several challenges, including flexibility, development speed, and complex regulations. To address these issues, NTT DATA wanted to build an innovative financial services delivery platform using open source technologies. The company chose Red Hat hybrid cloud and automation technologies to develop, deploy, and automate new applications for its banking customers.


Build an open source hybrid cloud platform

With Red Hat technologies, NTT DATA developed the OpenCanvas platform to link financial institutions with financial technology providers to modernize their cloud service infrastructure—and increase customer services. Additional platform enhancements, such as containerization, continue to boost efficiency. OpenCanvas runs the financial settlement system used by many financial institutions in Japan.

The platform also helped NTT DATA offer more competitive pricing, leading to a significant reduction in operating costs.
