Tokyo Stock Exchange sidelines Fujitsu with new Hitachi system

30 January 2006  |  8183 views  |  0 TSE

The Tokyo Stock Exchange has introduced a new trade clearing system from Hitachi in a bid to upgrade performance of its faltering trading systems.

The new system has a capacity of five million trades a day, but can be easily expanded and upgraded to meet surges in demand, an exchange spokesman told Reuters.

The introduction of the new system comes after a series of computer bungles with the Exchange's Fujitsu-built trading technology, culminating in the recent enforced shut-down of the TSE after a trading spike exposed capacity constraints.

The TSE says it will continue using systems developed by incumbent supplier Fujitsu for receiving and matching orders.

The new system has been introduced within a week of the appointment of Yoshinori Suzuki as the exchange's new IT chief. He was recruited from NTT with a brief to revive investor confidence in the exchange's technology systems and a doubling of the IT budget.

Update In a report submitted to Japan's financial watchdog on Tuesday, the TSE announced plans to further upgrade its trading systems, create a new surveillance post and implement other measures to fortify its capacity to monitor orders and cancel trades if required.
