Nomura Securities wins Google Cloud Customer Award in the financial services category ~"FINTOS!" Supported by Cloud Ace~

Cloud Ace Inc. (Headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, President: Makoto Aoki, hereafter, Cloud Ace) announced on June 15, 2022 that “FINTOS!”, an investment information smartphone app developed by Nomura Securities Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Chuo-ku, Tokyo, President: Kentaro Okuda, hereinafter referred to as Nomura Securities) with the support of Cloud Ace, was highly regarded, and Nomura Securities was awarded the Google Cloud Customer Award.

The Google Cloud Customer Awards are awarded by Google Cloud to companies that leverage Google Cloud technology to drive digital transformation (DX) with superior innovation and cutting-edge technology. This is the second consecutive year that a project in which Cloud Ace participated in received an award.

This award is related to the building of the investment information smartphone app "FINTOS!" by the Mirai Company, an organization established for the purpose of enhancing digital services across the divisions of Nomura Securities. "FINTOS!" is a service built on the concept of "Hints for investment" that supports customers' asset management by providing timely information, which helps customers of Nomura Securities invest in stocks.

We supported their development on Google Cloud, which enabled a cloud-native agile development to build simple structures faster. In addition, by analyzing the usage status of BigQuery users, we succeeded in incorporating the voices of users without slowing down the speed of service improvement. Nomura Securities has set the goal of building a "digital financial advisor," that is, a financial service that customers can complete digitally, and this award is considered to be a major step toward that end.

Mr. Hajime Ikeda, Managing Director of Digital Company and Marketing of Sales Department for Nomura Securities, commented as follows.

"We are very honored to receive the prestigious Google Cloud Customer Award. Nomura Securities aims to build a digital financial service that allows customers to manage their assets more comfortably, and is of high quality unique to Nomura Securities. In February 2021, we released "FINTOS!", a smartphone app that allows customers to easily obtain investment information. By adopting Google Cloud as its backbone, we are able to comply with the strict information security governance required by us. I feel that we were able to quickly develop and grow new services, such as analyzing usage trends and linking with various functions. This also goes for all development partners, including Cloud Ace. We are grateful for your help. Thank you.”

In response to the above, Ryo Takano, CTO of Cloud Ace, said the following.

"I am very pleased that Nomura Securities received the Google Cloud Customer Award. There were some challenges in the progress of this project, but all project members involved worked honestly to the end. As a result, we feel that we have been able to grow significantly, along with the promotion of the project. Thank you again for participating in such a wonderful project.

Cloud Ace is eager to continue participating in such a wonderful project in the future. We will continue to strive to be a reliable partner for the utilization of advanced technology."
