Recorded Webinar: The time is now for buy-side firms to re-evaluate their approach to data management

10 November 2022

Increased cost pressures, rising volumes of data, and the challenges of legacy systems are pushing buy-side firms to re-evaluate current approaches to data management. The aim is cost-effective, optimised data management that can provide flexibility and scalability, support various data types including ESG data, and ensure headroom for development in line with business objectives.

Achieving the milestone of optimised data management can be challenging, but there are solutions that enable practitioners to make incremental, yet significant, improvements, drive value out of data, and deliver benefits to the business.

This webinar will provide step-by-step guidance on how to achieve data management optimisation wherever you start on the journey. In doing this, it will review the challenges of legacy systems and the opportunities of advanced cloud-based solutions from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) all the way up to full business process outsourcing (BPaaS).

Listen to the webinar to find out about:

  • The state-of-play in buy-side data management
  • Why now is the time to invest in improvements
  • Challenges of achieving data management optimisation
  • Cost-efficient and effective solutions to address these challenges
  • Benefits of getting it right, penalties of getting it wrong
