Event description
Achieving Continuous Data Quality in Financial Institutions. Executing an Effective Data Quality Strategy.

About this Event

Date: Wednesday, January 27th 2021

Time: 11am EST

Data quality has become a critical priority for financial institutions. Their operational efficiency, regulatory compliance, and business decision-making relies on having accurate, trustworthy, and fit-for-purpose data. Low-quality data can quickly cascade throughout the organization, affecting the front, middle, and back offices within a financial institution.

The potential consequences of poor-quality data are too monumental to ignore. Lack of data quality continues to adversely impact operations, regulatory compliance, and business decision-making.

Here’s What You Can Expect to Learn:

  • Why is a data quality strategy important for a financial services firm?
  • What are the key ingredients for a data quality model that will increase operational efficiency, meet regulatory compliance, and enable better business decisions?
  • How does a financial firm implement an effective data quality tool that continuously addresses low-quality data across workflows?
  • How does a financial firm reinforce and measure quality to drive the change that is needed?
