Aim Software, FISD and Interactive Data Launch Reference Data Management Survey

Share article

Aim Software, FISD and Interactive Data have launched their fifth international reference data management survey, which aims to find out the challenges and trends in this sector over the next year.

The survey, which being carried out jointly by Aim Software and FISD and being sponsored by Interactive Data (Europe), is now available online on the Aim Software website.

The firms are hopeful that back office managers and risk managers will respond and provide information about how successful they have been at improving automation levels within reference data across their institutions. The survey is also attempting to find the driving forces behind this automation, how the financial industry is coping with new regulations and how mature back office systems are in the area of reference data. This year’s survey will also examine changes and advances between 2008 and previous years.

Martin Buchberger, head of marketing at Aim Software, explains: “We saw that the impact of new regulations is about to substantially change the whole operational infrastructure of financial institutions. We specifically took a closer look at risk management and reference data management processes in order to get a better picture of what shapes this development and to see how companies cope with it.”

The final results of the survey will be available by the end of 2008 and Aim says that participants will benefit from a free, comprehensive benchmarking to the rest of the market, country-specific drill-downs and charts.
