Embracing Automation and Collaboration Tools to Inject Reference Data into the Trade Lifecycle

Digital transformation in the financial services sector has raised many questions around data, including the cost and volume of reference data required by each financial institution.

Firms need flexible access to the reference data required to ensure workflows can proceed without interruption. ‘One-size-fits-all’ bulk data licensing models are increasingly less fit for purpose.

Emerging solutions with the potential to decrease the cost of data and increase flexibility of access are data delivery mechanisms based on collaboration tools such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and Excel, the Symphony messaging network and OpenFin financial desktop integration platform. These tools, coupled to new commercial models, could break the traditional data delivery mould and deliver on-demand data services.
