Bloomberg PolarLake Upgrade Allows CDOs to Extract More Value from Data

Bloomberg PolarLake has upgraded its data management utility to Version 8.0 with a view to giving chief data officers (CDOs) increased control, quality and insight into their organisation’s data universe. The vendor describes v8.0 as a ‘major update’ that allows users to extract more value and deliver better insights from their data. Current users of Bloomberg PolarLake can upgrade to v8.0 immediately.

Warren Buckley, CEO at Bloomberg PolarLake, says: “The Bloomberg PolarLake platform was designed from the ground up to simplify data management by offering control and transparency throughout the data supply chain. Version 8.0 increases that transparency and control on a day-to-day basis, while adding the ability to extract insights from an organisation’s data universe over time. CDOs can analyse changes in universe growth, rule impact and consumer behaviour, which means they can get a fuller picture of their data universe and supply chain, and pinpoint areas requiring increased control to benefit the organisation.”

The private cloud based platform, which is application and data agnostic, is designed to help asset managers, broker dealers, custodians, hedge funds and banks to more easily control costs, improve data quality and meet regulatory reporting deadlines. Additions to the platform in v8.0 include a data universe insight dashboard, enhanced data quality, ability to deliver data to the cloud on behalf of clients, improved exception management, workflow and navigation, and an index management platform that allows user to manage data from multiple index providers.
