hurricane-1245322_640.jpgThe financial industry is facing a perfect storm of disruptive drivers for data management. While regulators seek accuracy and transparency, institutions are struggling with fragmented data and IT infrastructures. The path forward is “data engineering” – applying consistent semantics with scalable infrastructure to harmonize data and enable traceable and dynamic analytics.

Watch this webinar to hear from industry practitioners and thought leaders on how this vision is being deployed and also see it in action.
