Traditional Approach to buy a Reporting Solution
Most traditional banking systems for reporting and analysis involve predetermination of hardware sizing, availability of hardware and elongated procurement processes. Further, it involves long discussions around permissible software platforms – from operating systems to databases, the versions of each of these.
Argus’ SaaS Approach
We at Argus, focus on ensuring that our clients can derive the benefit of the solution without the hassle of infrastructure and hosting. The Argus solution is made available to our clients on a reliable, safe yet scalable cloud platform. We worry about the servers, the operating systems, keeping them up to date and a lot of other things – our clients get to spend their effort and time analysing and deriving value from their data. The cloud infrastructure that is deployed takes utmost care of the following.
Argus has partnered with IBM to provide an extremely secure environment that ensures safety of your data and prevent it against any malicious attack. Every client has a unique URL and is redirected via a secure web gateway that can detect any impersonation, fraudulent access etc. The entire install has a second firewall placed to prevent accesses from potentially dangerous IP zones as well. In the further interest of security, we ensure that a separate instance of our market leading platform is provisioned for each client – that eliminates any chance of data leaks.
The Argus cloud platform is built to be elastic – so don’t worry if your business is growing and so are your data needs. Additional storage and compute resources are available at the click of a button and at a very affordable price.
To ensure complete compliance to local regulatory laws and data privacy, the cloud install of this solution is hosted locally, within Australia. No data leaves or moves out of the geographic boundaries of the country!
Recovery and Continuity
The Argus cloud is built to have an inbuilt business continuity as far as this solution is concerned. The cloud platform provides for the ability to have a mirror environment brought up within very quick time. Further, pre scheduled weekly/monthly backups are created to be able to restore to a “point in time”, anytime !
