Market Data Health Check

The market data health check is designed to provide a deep understanding of a client’s market data usage and infrastructure, and seeks to answer the following questions:

 

• What are the systems and business functions using market reference data?
• What vendors and what products are used?
• How are data subscriptions managed in the organisation?
• Is there a central point of control or is data management decentralised?
• Are data subscriptions duplicated?
• Are the data products acquired fit for purpose or would other products or vendors better satisfy requirements?
• What opportunities exist for cost reduction or avoidance in data acquisition?
• What changes in the organisations data infrastructure would be required to support such cost reductions?

 

Issues relating to these questions will be documented and plans developed for optimisation of market reference data sourcing, maintenance and distribution.
