The concept of data management is relatively simple. Firms need access to high-quality, relevant data, provided in a timely and cost-effective manner. Access to accurate data is necessary for effective investment decisions, trade execution, securities pricing, risk management, regulatory compliance, and portfolio valuation and measurement. Delivering on this concept, however, is challenging, particularly in a dynamic environment marked by significant regulatory changes.
Data management involves much more than just technology. A holistic approach to data management coordinates people and business processes as well as technological innovation. Firms need to consider key elements such as data architecture, metadata – data about data – taxonomy, security and storage.
When these elements are properly organized into an effective data management initiative, firms can realize significant benefits including lower operating costs, better risk management, and fewer and less costly errors.
Effective data management can be a source of significant competitive advantage.
