FINANCIAL

Increasingly, Financial Services Institutions (FSI) are experiencing an explosion of growth in data across multiple channels: customers, operations, social media, etc. At the same time, bespoke reporting and business intelligence, often commonly referred to as descriptive analytics, has evolved significantly to address new functionality including, predictive and cognitive capabilities, now commonly referred to as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). As a result, insight on performance, growth, and optimization has become more efficient, and cost effective – putting more accurate, more timely information in the hands of key decision-makers.  Today, market conditions, competitive, and regulatory pressures require a different, practical approach to addressing management’s need to know more.  In a data-first, cloud-driven world, savvy executives must use proven, innovative, technologically advanced techniques to stay ahead.

Additionally, the landscape of Financial Services continues to evolve and present challenges to the entire C-Suite.  Financial institutions have evolved through numerous acquisitions, years of addressing short term goals and the Great Recession to find themselves in an increasingly complex world. These have created environments that inherently represent high cost, high risk and high maintenance.  All of this in a world where transparency and process are required to meet the ever-changing demands of numerous regulators and Wall Street.
