Uri Shavit, Executive Vice President, Chief Information Officer, Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE)


More speed, tighter security and continual innovation…CIO Uri Shavit shares the changes and challenges in IT that face  financial services and stock exchanges. He also reveals how his people and partners are the keys to success.



Tell us about Tel Aviv Stock Exchange and the IT challenges there

“We’re the only stock exchange in Israel. We offer equities and derivatives trading, clearing and settlement, indice calculations, data dissemination and more. The processes in stock exchanges, particularly clearing and settlement systems, are very different from other companies or organizations, so it’s quite a unique place to work. Speed has always been important for getting the best deal when trading, but now, with digitalization, we are required to accomplish things even faster. We are talking about micro seconds for transactions! So, data must be continually available and yet secure. We compete with other, larger stock exchanges so we are always looking at how to stay at the forefront of technology in order to reduce risk, improve capabilities, achieve non-stop operations and keep ahead of the game in cybersecurity."


What is the best thing about your job?

"One of the things I really enjoy about my role is being the link between business and technology; understanding what the business needs and how business processes work to find the best solution to address the challenges we face. It’s a really interesting and innovative place to be, working with different teams and across the stock exchange and keeping abreast of all the new technologies available."


How do you encourage innovation?

"Innovation is key – without it you just can't be competitive. We keep a really close eye on the market, always on the lookout for best-of-breed solutions for new challenges. I always encourage our staff and partners to come up with new suggestions and keep us aware of new products. Our team is really professional and has lots of experience, particularly in cyber security, which is one of the major challenges currently confronting stock exchanges and financial institutions around the world. In the last few months, we’ve signed an agreement with the new stock exchange in Kazakhstan, AIX, to share our knowledge and expertise. Our IT teams also have the freedom to try out new solutions - even if I’m not initially convinced, I like to keep an open mind and give them a chance to change it."


What are the keys to success for a modern data center?

"The modern data center needs skilled and passionate people that can be trusted and relied upon – whether those are employees or partners. The data center is right at the heart of everything we do and needs to keep evolving and improving our efficiency so that we can operate faster and without interruption. That’s one of the reasons we have been working with Hitachi for more than a decade. They have a great understanding of our business and systems and the latest Hitachi technology is providing greater automation and faster recovery times so that our data – and business - is protected no matter what."


Where do you come up with your best ideas?

"Most of the time, they come from our own staff in brainstorming sessions. The team also engages with their peers at other organizations, suppliers and counterparts who might have similar interests or special skills and they share views and ideas on where technology is going. Well, as much as anyone can predict technology as it’s evolving so fast! Following a great collaboration with several strategic partners, we recently launched a new securities lending platform based on cutting-edge blockchain technology. We’re the first player in the Israeli market to leverage this technology. The new platform will improve security and support growth."


How do you see stock exchanges evolving over the next few years?  

"Well here at TASE, we’re currently focused on creating international collaboration. We operate in a highly competitive market, and by collaborating with other smaller and medium-sized stock exchanges, we can challenge the larger organizations. I think we’ll see changes in terms of the public interface - we have some projects running at the moment around digital behavior and API management. Through all of this, we are looking to monetize our data by delivering new analytical and reporting services.. By promoting our IT innovations and advanced digital tools we’ll be able to boost our competitive advantage and increase transparency in trading and accessibility of information to the public."

Created in 1886, the TIMELAB Foundation provides two of the most prestigious horological (relating to timepieces such as clocks and watches) certifications: the Poinçon de Genève and the Observatoire Chronométrique +.


In maintaining their mission of full independence and neutrality, their laboratory offers horology industry expertise, testing, investigations and services for movement and watch specifications. These measurements need to comply with standard requirements (ISO, NIHS, etc.) or meet specific customer requests during the homologation phase, which includes the production and quality control processes.



TIMELAB’s expertise, testing, analysis and certification activities generate large data volumes that became too difficult to manage manually. This is further complicated by the fact their data spans over an entire century from the first written records in 1886. As a result, they lacked a complete and immediate access to their data to automatically verify, integrate and archive for traceability needs.


It became clear that TIMELAB could benefit from a centralized, automated and expandable system with modern and powerful analytical functionality. In order to comply with their independence and neutrality commitment, TIMELAB was searching for a solution that would retain all of its testing and certification data in its original format without allowing users to alter its contents.



TIMELAB’s choice for the Pentaho Data Integration and Business Analytics solution allowed them to replace a manually maintained Microsoft Excel based system that was managed by the Laboratory Manager and the Certification Manager. An automated data management process has resulted in significant time savings for data collection and verification. This new system provides an automated comparison of diverse measurement results for greater productivity and rapid compliance checking. Once the results are recorded by an authorized member of the TIMELAB laboratory, user defined access is administered via Pentaho’s user console in order to maintain high data integrity and comply the neutrality requirements mandated by the certification process.


Additionally, Pentaho’s self-service data integration capabilities provide other watch factories with the ability to import their testing results while upholding the integrity of their data.


“Thanks to Pentaho we benefit from a fully integrated view of our data that our laboratory teams can now access in a self-service fashion. Furthermore, we can quickly generate certificates following successful testing procedures, produce the certification history on demand, and associate a part with all of its attributes, » said Anne-Sophie Guerra – TIMELAB’s Managing Director. “Pentaho’s platform leverages our expertise to make it easier to meet the requirements of quality and autonomy.”


In collaboration with Pentaho partner Linalis, who specializes in delivering business intelligence and web solutions, TIMELAB has now integrated their Excel based system into its centralized database. Following the import of every file created since 2012, they will leverage Pentaho to gradually incorporate all of the handwritten registries into the system. Linalis has also provided support for interface personalization and ISO compliance testing.

By relying on Pentaho’s modern and flexible end-to-end platform, TIMELAB has been able to deliver a wide range of certification management and analysis functionality for enhancing the team’s performance. Dashboards and reporting provide completed testing results; and full visibility on all of the watch parts and calibration details.

“Pentaho allows us to visualize the environmental factors impacting the work in our laboratory. For instance, our charts highlight measurements trending towards a lower or higher tolerance or even changing conditions during the day. This allows us to detect easier non-compliant parts so it does not impact our certification process,” explained Guerra.

Pentaho ingests temperature and atmospheric data in the laboratory to ensure testing is not impacted by changing environmental factors. In the event temperatures or particles are recorded above the pre-defined threshold, an email alert is sent to the appropriate recipients within the laboratory to give them time to react before being out of tolerance.


At the conclusion of the testing process, a part certification number is automatically generated by TIMELAB. thanks to a peering system combining a unique movement number with a unique watch case. In the event a movement already is associated with another case, it will automatically update This automated management system also continuously validates tests, certificate recordings, entry mistakes and omissions from the process. Pentaho enables easy search functionality to verify a watch’s authenticity.


Today TIMELAB is advocating for other laboratories to adopt Pentaho’s platform in order to build the industry’s most comprehensive horological certification and archiving system.

Making data storage and management simple, yet powerful is the cornerstone of ThinkOn’s business. Based in Toronto as an Hitachi Cloud Service Provider partner, this wholesale provider of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) delivers innovative data solutions to a variety of value-added resellers and telecom providers – who resell ThinkOn services to enterprise and midsized customers across a variety of industries.


Challenge – Deliver wholesale cloud-based data solutions


As ThinkOn’s customers grapple with soaring volumes of unstructured data, the ability to manage and archive this data is key. These companies need solutions to help them retain older data to meet regulatory compliance needs, access that data for future business initiatives – and above all else – ensure the data is secure. “At the end of the day, there’s one thing you have to fully commit to: minimizing risk of destruction of customer data,” says Craig McLellan, CEO of ThinkOn. “That’s really what this is about – providing our customer with a rock-solid guarantee that their data is safe.”


Solution – Gain security and freedom in one solution


ThinkOn deployed Hitachi Content Platform (HCP), a cloud object platform that enables companies to store, share, sync, protect, and retrieve file data from a single system. HCP tackles exponential data growth and bridges traditional and emerging technologies to protect data while keeping it available anywhere, anytime. “Over time, we discovered that as an object store it has so many qualities that allow us to stand out over the alternatives,” says McLellan. “We continue to see advantages in HCP that other solutions don’t have. It’s an ideal long-term platform for us.”


Outcomes – Future ready with a scalable and secure solution


The value of HCP to ThinkOn include benefits to their bottom-line through cost savings and to their top-line through incremental revenue growth.

  • First, with its powerful intelligence and automation, HCP delivers digital transformation dividends to ThinkOn’s IT staff by simplifying the provisioning process, driving cost efficiencies out of its infrastructure and improving utilization to 100%. “When there are issues, we see a high degree of ownership and collaboration from Hitachi,” said McLellan. “It all goes back to Hitachi’s heritage of being such a strong, technically competent organization. There is a level of collaboration that we just love.”Second, HCP provides a foundation for building Object Storage-based solutions.  As a result, ThinkOn has been able to incrementally monetize the potential of HCP by developing several as-a-service offerings that include Data Storage, Disaster Recovery and Backup. So what’s next – leveraging HCP for a new level of services focused around Analytics and IoT.


The result - simple, scalable, value-add.

About ResEvo

ResEvo (ResearchEvolution) is an innovative technology company based in Slovenia. Since 2007, they have managed over 60 business analytics projects with over 100 installations. ResEvo provides their customers with software that supports their business operations and analyzes their current processes with the goal to improve them. Their main product, ASK.BI (, is built on the Pentaho platform and is recognized as the first business application within central Europe to be featured on the IBM Marketplace.


ResEvo’s mission is to develop complex, innovative and high-quality software solutions, and to become an increasingly recognizable brand within Europe They are expanding their business and looking for partners including integrators, ISV’s and distributors globally.


Too Much Data, Too Little Information

It has been quoted that the size of the digital universe will at least double every two years, a 50-fold growth from 2010 to 2020. Human-and machine-generated data is experiencing an overall 10x faster growth rate than traditional business data, and machine data is increasing more rapidly at 50x the growth rate1.


This data deluge is impacting all organizations. What companies do with their data is what separates successful organizations from less successful ones. The more data an organization collects doesn’t equate to success. Often too much data can be counterproductive; it’s about turning this data into practical and actionable business analytics for the right audience at the right time. What the C-Suite wants to see from the data is different than what a product manager wants to see.


Focusing on the C-Suite

ResEvo focuses on selling to C-Suite customers as they are viewed as the “owners” of the data and the final decision makers who need the data. It’s about having the data in the moment you think about it - even if it’s in the middle of the night or when you are jumping in your car. Employees have noted improvements in company’s culture, simply from having the data and analytics readily available to all.


ASK.BI is a simple and intuitive tool where any C-Level executive can ask simple questions and get answers in real time. Additional, they can “slice and dice” the data and apply filters to drill down to specific data points. Any user can extract valuable high-level insights or dive into the details if needed. As Tomaz Bergant, CEO points out, “if you know how to “Google”, you know how to ASK.BI”.


Fulfilling a Need

Although business intelligence tools have been around for decades, the market continues to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of the business. Over the years, many BI tool styles have emerged to match the varied ways that business people need to analyze data.


ResEvo identified  this need and built an interactive solution ASK.BI – which has reinvented how users can access the information they need. Through a search based mechanism like Google or voice command query, managers can instantly access insights and analytics on any connected device anytime, anywhere just by entering keywords instead of time consuming data mining, report creation or ordering analysis.


Along with partners across Europe and Russia, ASK.BI is offered as a standalone, or embedded product to their customers across many different industries. Their flexible product is based on Hitachi Vantara’s scalable data integration and business analytics platform, known as Pentaho. ASK.BI can be installed on premises or in the cloud (i.e. Amazon, Microsoft Azure and IBM Cloud)


Pentaho is “their window” into business intelligence. “If it wasn’t for Pentaho, ResEvo would not be in the business intelligence market. Hitachi Vantara’s data integration and business analytics platform is the foundation of their knowledge and software ResEvo” remarks Tomaz Bergant, CEO of ResEvo.


Hitachi Vantara’s Pentaho Data Integration is used to consolidate data across all of their various systems, including ERP, CRM, HRM and SCM systems. Additionally, machine generated data is added to the mix.


Pentaho Mondrian OLAP server is the key component to ResEvo’s offering. End users can benefit from Pentaho Mondrian OLAP rich reporting features as well as high performing SQL queries. ASK.BI can be used as the “whole in one” analytical platform or can easily be integrated or embedded via REST APIs.


ASK.BI does what is expected from a modern business intelligence platform: “At the end of the day, business intelligence, is about answering business questions. The goal of ASK.BI is to become the C/PCC - Company/Production Control Center with a great user experience”.


Early Results

Compared to other BI platforms, ASK.BI’s search features enable end users to answer their business questions quicker – in fact anywhere from 10% to 90% faster.


ResEvo’s customers include many of Slovenia’s top 300 companies from different industries, i.e. telecommunications, energy, government and healthcare. Some of their customers include the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Slovenia, Petrol (energy), Impol (aluminium production), DonDon (food services - retail), Iskratel (telecommunications), Cosylab (control system engineering and integration) and the Slovenian Chamber of Commerce (government). Their portfolio of customers spans technology, oil and gas, government, and healthcare.


ResEvo’s specializes in helping retail, finance and production organizations. They are striving towards creating company control centers (CCC). They believe that “intelligence is built from motivation and   data”. Motivation encompasses an organization’s vision, mission and values. In addition to these core principles, ResEvo firmly believe you need data and motivation to gain intelligence.


Bergant has stated that “Pentaho Mondrian has been an enabler and a key differentiator for his organization, especially as they embrace OLAP technologies.” Hitachi Vantara’s platform has empowered ResEvo to enter the big data world.



  • Pentaho provides ResEvo with IoT analytics which can handle their increasing volume, variety and velocity of data collected from their desperate sources.
  • The country-wide smart-cities initiative in Slovenia has driven ResEvo to be at the forefront of smart city technologies and the Pentaho platform has provided the necessary analytics, knowledge mining and predictions.
  • Improved progress to their CCC initiative with the help of Pentaho’s Weka and Mondrian technologies.

To Space Pole and Beyond!

Posted by cchaffey Employee Mar 7, 2018

Three Belgian Science Institutes Accelerate Data Delivery After Discovering Hitachi Vantara


What is discovery but the realization of what has always been there? For three Belgian organizations at the research forefront of weather, climate, Earth and beyond, discovery is the daily mission. 


The Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium, the Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy and the Royal Observatory of Belgium collaborate as the Belgian Science Policy’s space hub, aka Space Pole. The Belgian Science Policy provides the interface between the research world and partnering countries and institutions. Space Pole engages more than 500 scientists, Ph.D. students and administrative staff.


Belgian Space Pole space picture.png


Leading research partners around the world — and around the clock — rely on Space Pole data to deepen their understanding of our universe. Massive data volumes are generated, processed and analyzed to support further exploration across the space sciences. Unfortunately, Space Pole’s continual data growth and subsequent storage were becoming untenable and costly, jeopardizing computing capacity and performance.


Discover how Space Pole implemented  an Hitachi storage architecture to boost data access and relevancy, slash costs by 50% and supply stellar business insights to partners.


“For us, 24/7 availability is a must, and we simply cannot afford to lose instrument data from cutting-edge satellite missions and scientific experiments. The Hitachi solution gives us the reliable storage we need.”


— Johan Bulcke, IT Manager, Royal Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy
