Report A Guide to Effective Data Storage in Investment Management
As asset owners and asset managers grow increasingly data-centric, how and where they store their data becomes more important. Firms may find that the legacy data storage repositories no longer keep pace with users' data demands, and the constraints and performance of on-premises data warehouses can make it difficult to locate and effectively use data. Data-centric firms need to democratize data by making it easily findable and accessible to all data consumers. In this research on data storage, we explore the new technologies that firms are adopting that aggregate and store common investment data and analytics. We cover data storage basics, member practices, and look at the vendor landscape. We also provide summaries of cloud-based data storage and data virtualization products.

To gain market share, vendors need to alleviate some of these challenges, keep pace as more investment managers invest in new asset classes, and address what are considered the very real threats of the 21st century. This report examines members' challenges and the risk management vendor landscape.
