Financial Services Data Quality and Governance

High-quality data is a required foundation which drives external regulatory reporting requirements, internal policies and processes, and executive decision-making. Capgemini’s QualityData Advantage℠ offerings provide financial institutions with the right strategy, vision, approach, achievable objectives, and – most importantly – a technology-agnostic execution plan.

Data quality has been an important initiative for financial institutions for many years. But operationalising data quality – the implementation of a data quality strategy across departmental/organisational boundaries – continues to be a challenge for many banks, insurance companies and capital markets firms.

Fundamental to our QualityData Advantage℠ approach is acknowledgement that a successful data quality initiative spans business and technology departments, affecting individual operations, processes and applications on both the business and IT side.

Improving and sustaining data quality requires an ongoing programme, not just periodic IT projects that apply data profiling technologies. QualityData Advantage℠ focuses on solving the data quality problem holistically and practically. Our solution integrates seamlessly with the services-oriented enterprise information platforms that many financial services organisations are beginning to put into place.

Solutions to address your data quality challenges

QualityData Advantage℠ includes offerings in three core areas:

  • Compliance: To assist clients in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia with data quality, Capgemini developed a methodical and implementable approach to operationalising data quality that is easy to implement and has proven to be highly successful for compliance applications.

  • Basel II and III: Capgemini helps banks successfully manage and improve data quality across organisation boundaries. Our QualityData for Basel Compliance offering connects your financial regulatory reform initiative to proven, credit, operational and market risk models to optimise risk-weighted assets for the benefit of the business and regulatory compliance.

  • Solvency II: Capgemini’s QualityData for the Solvency II offering includes an approach, methodologies, and tools designed to help insurers make fact-driven decisions to improve data quality and governance in an effort to optimise risk management and decision support.
