With rising demand for digital services and real-time decision making in financial services, there is a renewed focus on properly governed data as the fuel for this transformation — and the world of investment and asset management is racing to catch up. Following the arrival of on-demand culture, with employees able to call up the data, movie or product they need at the touch of button on Amazon or Netflix, the days of trawling through an Excel database or legacy systems for the information they need is no longer an option.

As a result, asset management leaders need to ensure that teams and stakeholders have access to the information they need for fast, efficient, and transparent decision-making in real time while ensuring that data governance and compliance controls are front of mind.

This podcast features a discussion with Dean McIntyre, Director of Strategy at FactSet, an integrated data and software solutions provider, to explore the issues surrounding data governance and how asset managers can empower staff from front to back office, reduce operating costs and ease compliance in an on-demand culture.
