Sompo Japan DC Securities: Investment Company Strengthens Security and Performance of Critical Website
Sompo Japan DC Securities (SJDC) contracts with other companies to provide their employees with pension plans. SJDC offers a variety of services and features on AnswerNet, its one-stop customer-facing website, but this complexity taxed the system's disparate platform components. With its partner, Nihon Unisys, SJDC updated AnswerNet with the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 and deployed it on a platform that included Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008. The Microsoft platform's performance-optimization features and strong scalability help the company better manage its website traffic, and security tools have improved the safety of participants' sensitive financial data. Customer satisfaction has increased because of the website's improved ease of use, and flexible development options will help SJDC adapt more cost-effectively to changing business needs.
