Industry Event

Description

Data is growing exponentially which creates new challenges: financial data is more varied and the increase of compliance regulations such as FRTB and TCA is rising. However, the emergence of existing and new data science tools such as AI and machine learning means that deeper insights and opportunities are available.

How do you integrate these new tools within your existing infrastructure to make shared data the center of your architecture? How do you take a Big Data approach to managing your data? What is the secret sauce?

Learn more about open technology, big data, cloud storage, build vs. buy, and legacy technology vs. new technology at our breakfast event.
