To succeed in the hypercompetitive capital markets arena, investment firms require three things: Access to data Internal and external; proprietary and public; historical and real-time; company performance and competitors’ performance; political, social, environmental, and behavioral data; and more. Data intelligence Usable insights and intelligence derived from the data resources, via analytics and cognitive functionality, to identify market opportunities. Speed Ability to leverage data insights quickly - before competitors do so, and before conditions change. In short, an investment firm is only as good as its data and its ability to leverage that data to make smart trades. A firm’s ability to differentiate itself in meeting market needs and bringing new products to market all hinge on its ability to squeeze maximum value out of all available data. But when it comes to implementing the right technology and processes to support a data-reliant business, those three factors present tremendous challenges.
