November 2013 – Investec Asset Management selects Curium for Data Quality Management
6th November 2013
Sun Street Limited, the data management technology company, today announced that Investec Asset Management (IAM) has selected its Curium solution as a process control platform for managing data quality across its Investment Operations function.
Curium provides business as usual (BAU) controls for exception detection and workflow management over operational data sets and is initially being applied across the universes of security reference and positions data at IAM. The addition of Curium to Investment Operations brings the management of data quality to the forefront of the operational process and supports the key objectives of the business to minimize business risk and improve operational efficiency.
Waldi Schoonraad, Global Head of IT at IAM commented. “Curium delivers a very neat solution for Operations teams to be on top of data quality as a core business process. Data quality and its control have implications across the entire business and underpin our overall strategies for managing risk and regulatory requirements within the investment process. Curium gives us the assurance that we are managing the quality of our structured data as best and as efficiently as we can.” Waldi added “A key selling point for us was that Curium doesn’t require us to alter any of our existing data flows and architecture. This ability to deliver data quality controls but without a large IT project or data restructure exercise was a key requirement as we wanted to see business benefits delivered within a matter of weeks.”
Adam Saunders, Product Director for Curium said. “We are delighted to add Investec to the Curium client list. Our key message behind Curium is that you don’t have to invest heavily into the data architecture to bring about an effective data management process. Curium is designed specifically for Operations to give them the control and workflow features that these teams need.”
