1. Associated with NikkoCitigroup Ltd., a collaboration of Nikko Cordial-Japan and

Citigroup Global Services, here in Tokyo Japan, as a J2EE Consultant from Oct 2006 till Date.

I am involved in development of a Reporting Interface as a part of the team, which consolidates

daily trades. The system sources data from Equity back office system to produce various operational,
exception, management, and regulatory/settlement reports. This application provides viewing, searching,
printing and archival facilities for reporting.

The back office system sources variety of trades from different front office systems. It sends Stock
and Cash settlement instructions to clearinghouses. It also provides feed to General Ledger and other
downstream systems.
I am also involved in communication with the users to resolve daily issues and coordination tasks
involving support functionalities of an existing system, etc. However my primary responsibility revolves
around the development of the reporting application.

Project Title TORI - Tokyo Operations Reporting Interface

Institute/Organization Nikko Citigroup Limited
Tools/Platform JSP, Servlets, Jrun 4.0.6, Solaris
Duration Oct 2006 - Till Date
Team Size 5 (1)
Role Analysis, design, development, testing and deployment of
the Reporting application, Coordinating with the users for
different issues as well as for the user acceptance signoff
and maintenance.
Summary I am a part of a 5-member team, which is involved in
backend settlement of daily trades happening through Nikko.
As a byproduct of the daily trades, there are large number of
reports are generated, some of which are daily, whereas
some are weekly and some printed fortnightly.

The TORI Web Application was visualized to achieve a

paperless reporting system, replacing the current reporting
system that consumes huge resources in terms of stationary,
ink and most importantly crucial man-hours spent in reviews
of huge reports that are printed on daily basis.

The TORI Web Application removes the need to print the

reports created on a daily basis. The reports available can be
accessed online via TORI as when required.

The application provides the flexibility of searching for any

particular keys (A/c No., CUSIP, Trade ref, etc) and
traversing easily to the page containing this information.

Moreover the performance of the application is a very

important feature as even reports spanning thousands of
pages are traversed in almost no time.

Index based searching also provides the added advantage of

fast and flexible search based on multiple keys.
