As the volume of data used in asset management firms has grown exponentially, so has the need to effectively manage, store, and distribute it. This CutterBenchmarking survey will reveal how your data management practices measure up against our Capability Model and other participating firms. Furthermore, by comparing the results to similar surveys we conducted over the last six years, we will be able to analyze trends over time.
The survey will cover categories across Cutter's Four Cornerstones of Data Management as well as across Data Domains:
Data management roles and responsibilities, as well as the level of sponsorship, adoption, and enforcement of your data governance.
You firm's data management applications and stores, as well as data integration between business applications.
The level of documentation of data management processes and how your firm manages metadata.
The resources and tools used to control access to and distribute data to your firm's consumers.
How your firm sources and ensures quality data by domain (Security Master, Client, Product Structure and Account, Trade, Accounting, and Performance and Analytics).
CutterBenchmarking focuses on helping investment organizations understand how they stack up to their peers and the industry across their operational platforms. By providing a clear picture of processes, ranked by a clear and consistent set of parameters, we provide the insight and evidence needed to improve operational efficiencies and systems frameworks. Armed with a set of specific, relevant measures, you can track and monitor progress consistently and accurately
