FINACLE OPERATIONAL DATA STORE

Get the most out of data, cost effectively!


Banks grapple with colossal amounts of data, often dispersed across disparate systems in their environment. The arising challenges include:




Collation and consolidation of information with minimal manual intervention
Transformation of data into meaningful enterprise-wide reports and undertaking data analysis for business effectiveness measurement
Unified presentation of data
Leveraging data to drive up revenues and profitability
Decision makers are constantly driven to reduce the time taken and the costs incurred to mine and leverage the wealth of information
available on customers, markets and operations. Consistent reports generation is deemed critical to empower end-users with relevant
information, to better segment understanding, increase cross sell opportunities, personalize products, identify emerging opportunities,
manage risks better and create differentiation. A proven means of addressing these challenges is a technology enabler that ably manages the
banks data.
