Data Quality Management

Establish superior data quality standards for your CDO and win back the trust of risk and finance.

Data quality in your control: Expose, monitor and continuously improve your data quality

With CDO’s, regulators and business users showing an ever greater interest in data quality, it’s time to operationalize your capability to measure and improve it.

Get to grips with your data quality

Improve the quality of your data, wherever it is

Although you clean and validate daily data feeds, data at rest degrades over time. And data generated inside your business might not have gone through rigorous cleansing before being distributed and stored. With multiple instrument masters in which your data resides, unmasking and improving overall data quality is perceived as extremely difficult. But it’s no longer a daunting prospect, with a proven methodology and the right technology to hand.

CDO strategies, regulatory oversight, operational efficiency, advances in modeling and analytics, transformation programs and business demands

Data quality is the foundation for most significant business or operating model improvements. Insightful institutions are formalizing their data quality practices, putting in place a continuous improvement framework as an enabler for better business and smoother change.

Explicit, quantifiable, objective data quality management

When all data can be compared and quality-tested in a consistent way on a daily basis, clarity and objectivity is achieved. Also, the priority for making improvements is clearly exposed and communicated to the data owners.

In addition to dashboards showing data quality improvements over time, which is key for proving the ROI of your initiatives, data quality metrics, e.g. by asset class, can drill down to the individual errors and exceptions that need to be fixed. Data quality can also be analyzed by types of quality, e.g.:

  • Processing – are all data received and persisted?
  • Completeness – are all data sets and data items recorded?
  • Validity – does the data match the rules?
  • Subscription – are all data distributed timely and correctly?
  • Consistency – are all vendors providing matching data?

Hundreds of quality rules, plus yours

We work with your team to identify the critical data elements (CDE) from among your data stores across securities reference, clients and counterparties, accounts and products. Our out-of-the-box rules accelerate and de-risk the initial phases of your data quality project, ensuring rapid time to value. With weightings applied to rules and CDEs, when you see the reports it’ll be clear which issues need to be fixed first. And you can easily introduce custom rules to suit your particular processes or data types, ensuring maximum value across your business.

Data quality processing power

Whether you’re dealing with tens of thousands or tens of millions of instruments, the solution is proven. At first glance it doesn’t seem complicated to run a rule against a set of data. But compound that to multiple, complex, hierarchical rules, and expand that to large sets of data, every day. There’s also the processing power to do it and the optimization required at a database level.

We give you the ability to look past those things and, as operations users and business users, build out your data quality competence.
