Data drives every business process across the buy side. The higher its quality, the more reliable, accurate and transparent the resulting downstream business processes are likely to be. That's a simplistic characterization of what can be a highly sophisticated and complex industry, although the premise holds true: data permeates every facet and touches every function across the capital markets.
Read this whitepaper to understand the extent to which buy-side firms suffer from suboptimal data, the degree to which they acknowledge and understand their deficiencies, and the steps they have taken or are willing to take in order to remedy that situation.
It also sheds light on:
- Who specifically within buy-side firms is ultimately responsible for data management and general governance
- The specific business processes most affected by poor-quality data
- The extent to which buy-side firms have developed and implemented clearly defined data management/governance frameworks
- The common challenges facing buy-side firms when it comes to managing-and, crucially, sharing-data across their ecosystems.
