Big Data is taking off in financial services markets as firms begin to pull together structured and unstructured data, and implement enterprise and risk apps dedicated to issues including finding alpha, managing conduct risk and analysing market sentiment.

The challenges and opportunities of Big Data were debated during a recent A-Team webinar entitled Practical Uses of Big Data in Data Management.
