MDM Compliance Systems (MDM) is a rapidly expanding business with a niche product for automating share disclosure in the financial services sector. Having identified a gap in the market, MDM built a share disclosure rules engine using Oracle Database. They chose to work with Oracle Partner DSP to develop a user interface using Oracle Application Express (APEX), hosted in Oracle Cloud.


"We chose Oracle for its scalability, flexibility, and reliability, as well as its strong reputation in the financial services sector. Speed of deployment was also critical, and by choosing Oracle Application Express and hosting in the Oracle Cloud, we were up and running within just a couple of months."

The Challenge

  • Develop a customer-friendly user interface for MDM’s shareholding and disclosure rules engine, enabling customers to combine daily market, company, and trading data to calculate percentage shareholding on a daily basis, to comply with financial regulations
  • Host the shareholding and disclosure service in a cost-effective, flexible, and secure way to offer the service to an increased market, with the aim of growing MDM’s business tenfold within two years
  • Bring the new service to market quickly, to meet growing market demand for a reliable, cost-effective, and highly secure way to help financial customers meet their global shareholding disclosure requirements

One of the main challenges for MDM is that all financial services and investment companies have to disclose details of their shareholdings on a daily basis, complying with 400 rules set by 90 different regulatory bodies. Non-compliance can result in multi-million dollar fines.


The Solution

  • MDM and DSP worked together to develop a user interface using Oracle APEX, they opted to host the new service in Oracle Cloud
  • Built and hosted the service using Oracle Platform as a Service and Oracle Infrastructure as a Service
  • Deployed Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Compute Cloud Service within two days compared to two months for an on-premises solution, at one-tenth of the overall set-up cost

DSP developed a user interface for MDM’s shareholding and disclosure product within just eight weeks, using Oracle APEX, to quickly bring MDM’s service to a broad and global financial services market. As well as provide a fully managed service offering for Oracle Cloud, delivering both expertise and reassurance to financial services customers.


The Result

  • The Oracle Cloud solution enabled rapid time-to-market and significantly reduced the cost of ownership compared to an equivalent on-premises solution
  • Enabled MDM to offer a rapid set-up and a service tailored to its individual customers’ requirements, priced according to how much data they have and how much computing power they require in the Oracle Cloud to undertake their daily shareholding calculations
  • MDM is now taking its new service to the global financial services market. It expects to grow the business tenfold over two years
  • Used complex algorithms combining daily market, company, and trading data to calculate percentage shareholding on a daily basis, helping investment and asset managers to ensure they remain compliant with global financial regulations at all times
