Investing in Smarter Financial Reporting Saves Time and Money
If you work in the financial services industry, you are responsible for your clients’ outcomes. That’s a lot of pressure. Making anything less than a data-backed decision leaves too much margin for error. It’s no surprise, then, that financial reporting is practically the backbone of the industry.
Whether you manage a bank, broker mortgages or trade securities, you need access to accurate data—and stat! The last thing you have time for is sitting around and twiddling your thumbs while the IT or data department prepares a report. Hint: That could take weeks, if not months.
The Case for Financial Analytics
Investing in financial analytics really means investing in your present and future performance. For example, think about how much time and energy your employees would save if they could instantly pull insights from billions of rows of stored company data. Suddenly, everyone would be their own personal data analyst.
There are several financial analysis tools to consider here. The Relational Search Engine crunches numbers to find answers to users’ most pressing queries—returning them in seconds as a chart or graph. Meanwhile, the SpotIQ AI Engine uses machine-learning algorithms to dig up actionable insights you didn’t even know you needed. For reference, it could take human analysts as long as 40,000 hours to do what SpotIQ does in a click.
