How it works

※What is “SYNTAX on T-MONOLIX”?

  • SYNTAX on T-MONOLIX is a service using a shared system (including hardware) operated and managed at NRI’s data centers. While maintaining the same functions of standard SYNTAX solution installed on the client side, this has been developed to be used among multiple data-disclosing companies.
  • Operating procedure for SYNTAX on T-MONOLIX is almost the same as that of SYNTAX installed on the client side. NRI manages servers.
  • NRI’s data centers, where SYNTAX on T-MONOLIX and other banking clients’ systems are operated, are under strict security control, ensuring the reliable protection of clients’ data.
  • SYNTAX Circular Download enables T-STAR/GX on T-MONOLIX to retrieve and process data within NRI’s data center, eliminating application requirements for receiving users.

Functions

For users who disclose data

  • SYNTAX manages all disclosing data with a single server. When adding new receiving users, disclosing users simply register the data of new users on the screen.
  • Network connection to receiving users is handled at NRI’s network centers; therefore, disclosing users do not have to worry about complicated network settings and testing as the number of receiving users increases.
  • Disclosing users can view disclosing data at their office and, by configuring a LAN connection for disclosure in the office, they can also use the data download function for end-user computing (EUC).

For users who reference data

  • Receiving users can obtain disclosing data using a web browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer). It is easy to receive data from custodian banks with simple operations commonly used for web-based services.
  • To receive data, it is only necessary to have an operating system environment with Microsoft Internet Explorer and network connection. There is no need to install expensive hardware or special applications.
  • Receiving users can access to multiple custodian banks in the same system environment. There is no need to configure a new environment even when the number of custodian banks providing disclosing data increases. Disclosing data can be obtained seamlessly from different custodian banks within the same browser screen.
  • SYNTAX has some other functions such as collective data acquisition from multiple disclosing users, automatic data acquisition at regular intervals, and import of data into an internal database (Circular Download Function).
  • Receiving users can use functions for data conversion to create import files and data matching for T-STAR/RX system if they are using the T-STAR/RX service.
