Data Volumes

How to Cost‐Effectively Manage Higher Data Volumes

Read the Data Volumes Case Study

PROBLEM: Data Volumes are Increasing – but You Can’t Keep Adding Technology and Staff

You’ve no doubt realized that managing benchmarks and reference data is fundamentally different from other data sets. It’s more complex – so it takes more staff time to validate and customize the data for use by specific systems. Specific indexes are sometimes mandated as part of an investment policy, so there is often no alternative. And the number of indexes is large and continually increasing. This increasing volume is compounded by some distinctive technical challenges. For example:

  • The number of benchmark and reference data providers is greater than other, simpler data types – and each may format data differently
  • The number of users and uses within your firm may be large and diverse – so your needs for reformatting and customizing data may be large

You may be coping with the challenge of increasing volumes of benchmarks and reference data by using spreadsheets and manual workarounds. But with growing volumes, this can increase operational risk, compromise data quality, and reduce the timeliness of the data.
