Financial institutions have shifted to a cloud-first strategy for managing their data. In fact, 52% of firms are using the cloud for their data management.

Data quality checks, data ingestion, data profiling are all examples of tasks that can be set to run automatically. This can free up significant time for a team to work on more meaningful projects.

Without some form of data quality control, bad data can spread throughout an organization and create a perpetual lack of trust for every department that wants to use it. This can be avoided by focusing on the internal processes and workflows associated with gathering data. What does your data management menu look like?
