Recorded Webinar: How managed data services can support your digital journey

11 December 2019

While data management has been very much an in-house function for many asset managers, recent analysis pinpoints accelerators that can help buy-side firms adopt Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) to help them gain competitive edge.

The analysis, commissioned by SimCorp Gain, discusses the accelerators and obstacles of adopting DaaS. It also highlights the significant cost benefits and efficiencies of implementing these types of solutions – so what are you waiting for?

Listen to the webinar to find out more about:

  • The business and client benefits of managed data services
  • The shortcomings of traditional BPO and data service initiatives
  • How to outsource the core data management process to managed data services
  • How to get the fundamentals right for end-to-end managed data solutions
