Eagle Investment Systems’ Head of Global Professional Services shares implementation best practices and highlights on how clients can get the most out of their solutions.

Q. You’ve been with Eagle for nearly a decade now as the Head of Global Professional Services. Can you discuss what that role entails?

A. Over my tenure at Eagle, we have seen our business grow and the expectations of our clients rise dramatically.  With our leadership in the industry, clients expect us to help them improve their operation by implementing our technology.

We’ve done this hundreds of times, so we are able to steer clients down the right path with sound proven ways of doing things.

TSAM Recap: Managed Services Becoming Key Piece in Data Quality Puzzle

Jeremy Skaling, ‎Managing Director, Head of Product Management

meetingData quality was in focus at TSAM New York in June. In a panel on the topic—as part of a discussion that ranged from data lineage to data domains—I had the chance to highlight the continued focus within investment managers to employ data management best practices. These best practices include a comprehensive data governance program that aligns business owners with technology solutions and service providers.  By deploying best practices, firms find that data management can be as much about ensuring data quality as it is about finding new efficiencies. As a result, we are increasingly seeing that investment firms are considering new ways to integrate managed services into a more comprehensive data governance strategy.

As I underscored at TSAM, much of this has to do with the need for flexibility and agility, which are critical in today’s complex data environment, particularly in an industry as dynamic as financial services. Investment firms must have the right processes and disciplines in place to truly manage and govern their data.

Harmonizing Babel: Business Ontology Standards in Focus

Paul McInnis, Head of Enterprise Data Management, Data Management

Business Ontology Standards in FocusThe Wall Street Journal, in a headline six years ago, asked: “Are dictionaries becoming obsolete?” The article, to the chagrin of some traditionalists, implied that if the dictionary wasn’t yet obsolete, than the end would be approaching soon. Yet, in an era when even Scrabble saw fit to adulterate its official dictionary it with millennial slang — be it “lolz,” “lotsa,” or “ridic” — hope remains for the traditionalists, as best practices in data management are driving the adoption of thorough and comprehensive business glossaries. At this point, advocacy may be isolated to data scientists and CIOs, but make no mistake, appreciation and the demand for precision around ontology standards is growing as this uniformity, or lack thereof, is among the larger “gating” items for large-scale enterprise data management projects.

For the uninitiated, a business glossary is the definitive reference guide that establishes and cements a standard for business terms and relationships across an enterprise. In an era of ever-sprawling financial institutions, in which organizations stretch across regions, asset classes and cultures, a definitive business glossary is critical to engender a common understanding around what each term means for all employees and business partners, and in all cases.

Engage 2015 Coverage: Investing for Growth

Stephen Johns, Manager of EMEA Services Delivery EIS

It’s an age-old question: what comes first, growth or the capital investments that drive growth? At a panel Tuesday morning, “Growing Assets Efficiently,” four executives discussed their approach to this strategy question and highlighted that while it can be difficult to make the leap and overcome certain challenges that come with doing so, their investments to gain control of their data have indeed paid dividends across their businesses.

A survey cited during the panel seems to imply that most organizations in banking and finance still view IT and technology as merely a cost of doing business. Indeed, 67% indicated they are increasing their “lights on” IT spend, while only 20% view this as an investment geared for growth. It’s no wonder that nearly one in three do not believe their IT budget meets an expected ROI, and, among those polled, the average spend on technology came in below 7% of revenue.
