Fenergo Expands Operations to APAC and Appoints Head of Sales for the Region



Regulatory pressures creating demand for Fenergo solutions in Australia, Hong Kong and Singapore

Sydney, Australia, Sept 5, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - Fenergo, the leading provider of Regulatory Onboarding, Entity Data and Client Lifecycle Management solutions for investment banks and capital market firms, has today announced its expansion into Asia Pacific, with the creation of a local team based out of Sydney, Australia. The announcement was made during the Enterprise Ireland Trade and Investment mission to Australia led by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD.

The company has appointed Brett Hodge as Head of Sales for the region. Hodge brings extensive experience to the role having worked with Avox in the capacity of Manager of Asia for the last seven years and Regional Director of Algorithmics for nine years previous.

Speaking from Sydney Minister Bruton said: "ICT is a key sector which we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs. One of our key aims is to support more Irish companies to export - particularly to high growth markets. Today's announcement by Fenergo that it is expanding into the Asia Pacific region and placing senior staff members in the market is very welcome. Fenergo is a highly innovative Irish company and this is a strong sign of its commitment to growing its export sales in the region. I wish them every success and look forward to working with them in the future".

Commenting on the announcement, Marc Murphy, CEO of Fenergo, said, "We are thrilled to announce the expansion of Fenergo's global footprint to Asia Pacific and I am particularly delighted to announce the appointment of Brett Hodge, who will head up our APAC operations and sales activities. Brett's extensive local market knowledge will help to accelerate our expansion plans for the region, enabling us to deliver a superior local service based on global experience and world-class software solutions.

"We are already seeing a lot of demand coming from the APAC region, driven in large part by enhanced and new regulatory frameworks being introduced by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) and the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). With the ability to manage the compliance and client and counterparty data and document obligations for multiple regulations simultaneously on a single platform, Fenergo's regulatory onboarding and client lifecycle management solutions can help financial institutions across Asia Pacific to comply fully with regulatory requirements with the help of a centralized source of golden data and onboard institutional clients quickly and efficiently".

The Sydney Team represents Fenergo's third international expansion this year, having opened offices in Boston and New York in January.

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
While many government agencies have embraced the idea of employing cloud computing as a tool for increasing the efficiency and flexibility of IT, many still struggle with large scale adoption. The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds.

One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
