Finnish municipal pensions group Keva has signed for the SkySupport service to maintain its Wallstreet Suite installation and give it a complete package of assured availability and surveillance. Keva is currently upgrading from Wallstreet Suite version 6.5 to version 7.4 to take advantage of the new instrument framework and advanced asset management functionality. SkySparc now provides Keva with a trusted and proactive managed service to support their asset management operations, freeing up internal resources to work on the upgrade project and other business priorities.
“SkySparc has an excellent service reputation in the market,” said Juha Soininen, head of middle office at Keva. “We are a user of its SkyReport solution, so it was a natural extension to take advantage of SkySupport too. We know we can rely on the dedicated team of technical and financial experts at our disposal to ensure the high availability of our critical systems.”
