Modernizing Data Quality & Governance: Unlock Performance & Reduce Risk

Good data quality is absolutely essential to help financial services companies minimize risk while better informing business decisions. Unfortunately for many of these organizations, data quality tools that were purchased for IT to fix data issues have not keep pace with the ascendance of data governance programs that require business and IT to co-manage the quality of data as a business asset. FIMA's latest whitepaper evaluates how financial services companies are managing the challenges posed by data quality management. By analyzing which data types and data characteristics businesses are struggling with, it uncovers the true business costs associated with data quality.

Creating Smart Data Insights Through Intelligent Data Integration: A FactSet Whitepaper

Transforming Financial Institutions Through Data Governance

Although data management practices have been around almost since the inception of the computer, data governance has only become a central strategic priority for financial institutions over the past few years. The catalysts for this relatively novel emphasis on data governance are rooted in two of the financial industry’s most fundamental values: minimizing risk and enhancing value from business intelligence. First-rate data governance serves both of these interests, mitigating the regulatory and financial risks associated with data mismanagement while also opening up new opportunities for organizations to leverage data to make more informed business decisions. Put simply, effectively managed data can be an organization’s greatest asset; this is the importance of good data governance. Click on the image to the left to download.
