Investment banks and other firms in capital markets face several constraints on ways to increase profits. Basel III, the Volcker rule, and other regulations limit the riskier, higher-margin ventures of the past.
These constraints have prompted calls to shore up profitability by doing more with less across the organization. In IT, the adoption of a more powerful, more capable, more unified data platform technology makes this possible.
A global investment bank processed more than a billion transactions in one day of intense market volatility while providing concurrent access to that data for 250 different systems.
The data platform approach
- Ease the burden of complying with new regulations, including those on capital and liquidity
- Provide greater transparency
- Gain real-time business insights from analytics run against a comprehensive and clean data set
- Simplify IT infrastructure and lower software costs
- Create innovative new services
