A-Team Group: Business Case for The SmartStream Reference Data Utility
Building the Business Case for Joining the Reference Data Utility

The benefits of joining a utility for managing reference data are clear: it’s an opportunity to enjoy improved data quality, simplify overly complex data management infrastructures, meet constantly expanding (and changing) regulatory requirements and – significantly – realise significant reductions in operating costs.

This white paper describes the four key business cases that can be addressed by adopting a utility-based approach to reference data management. It also describes common objections and how The SmartStream Reference Data Utility (RDU) business model addresses them. And finally it takes a look at the roles of the decision-makers and influencers and how to work to bring them onboard.

Whitepaper: The Reference Data Utility
The Reference Data Utility: How Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Morgan Stanley are breaking the reference data mold

For years, reference data management has been regarded as a necessary evil: a mission-critical function that requires significant resource in terms of data, staff and IT infrastructure, but which represents no true commercial differentiator for financial institutions across the board. Banks, brokerages and asset managers across the industry have long dedicated similar levels of resource to cleansing, normalising and aggregating the same data sets, creating a massive duplication of effort.

Past efforts to create some form of shared central utility to take away the pain of this have failed. Until now. The industry has its first viable utility in the form of the SmartStream Reference Data Utility (RDU), backed by its founding partners. This paper examines what was behind the decision for these Tier 1 banks to buy into the concept, the benefits they are receiving and how can adopting such a model help other financial institutions.
