Front to back data architecture controls data and delivers cost savings for investment bank
Ortecha created a complete front to back conceptual information architecture for a major investment bank. The new architecture covers the complete breadth of the bank’s business functions; and multiple data flows between internal business functions and external sources and consumers. The data models govern data domains including risk, trade, market and reference data (including both instrument and client data).
Working with the bank and its stakeholders, we created a new conceptual data model and information architecture for the bank, supported by change management and governance processes. The introduction of business process optimisation and standardisation offered the bank an opportunity to achieve its strategic aims of reducing the number of applications in use, consolidating functions and processes and so saving the company time and money. The project helped to identify significant cost savings and a return on investment that can be achieved in the near and medium term.Back to Case Studies
