Big data matters – except when it doesn’t

Business Analytics Insights
As the global economic downturn evolves into recovery, financial services companies seek in-depth insights to solve critical business issues, reduce risk, and drive growth. By applying advanced analytics to capture and understand their data, companies in the banking and securities, insurance, and investment sectors can leverage their data to build stronger, more robust business models. In doing so, they can make more proactive decisions that deliver customer value.
Banking Analytics Insights
While analytics isn’t exactly new to the world of banking, plenty of banks are gearing up for their next big analytics push, propelled by a load of data and new, sophisticated tools and technologies. Why has business analytics jumped to the top of the priority list for banks? Pick a reason. Regulatory reform, managing risk, changing business models, expansion into new markets, a renewed focus on customer profitability: Any one of these are reason enough for many banks to reconsider what today’s analytics capabilities can offer. A host of significant, recent changes in the banking industry have resulted in a long list of business challenges that the practice of business analytics may be positioned to address.

Investment Management Analytics Insights
The investment world has been hit with a dual challenge: a prolonged low interest rate environment combined with the growing appeal of passive investment strategies. Regulators are demanding deeper insight and increased transparency into risk and exposure. Compliance requires firms to access and integrate siloed data from across the enterprise. That’s no small task.
Regulatory requirements, competitive forces, demographic shifts, and commoditizing products underscore the need for actionable insight to support strategic business decisions. Investment firms are increasingly looking to leverage business data to drive efficiency, grow revenues, and improve margins.
