Financial Services Solutions

Regulations are ever increasing and most financial services firms find compliance challenging. According to a recent report from Grant Thornton, there are more than 1,200 key regulatory requirements around the world with an estimated $199 billion in fines incurred just between 2004 and 2013. Regulators expect proof that you have systems and processes in place for knowing how data flows across your firm.

With today’s rapidly evolving data landscape, most existing data management systems struggle to handle diverse data and metadata that support your operations. You need to be able to quickly understand large, diverse and complex data landscapes, map data to regulators' requirements, track decisions and controls on data and be prepared to respond to new requirements. In short, mature data governance is increasingly important to financial organizations. Indeed, it has been noted that even more than big data, it may be the defining data management challenge of our time. The 2016 Financial Industry Management (FIMA) survey reports a growing realization that having the right tools is very important factor for effective data governance:

  • 83% of respondents said that data governance is vital to their business
  • 50% of respondents indicated their firms are making investments greater that $12M in 2016 in IT solutions that improve data governance
