Mary Knox here. As we launch our survey of reference data management software vendors, I am struck once again by the level of fragmentation – and confusion – in this marketplace. Many of our clients have this same realization as they pursue reference data management centralization initiatives and look for a solution that can address all of their market data needs.
One of the outcomes of this research will be some segmentation of the available solutions based on focus – front office vs middle and back office; particular use cases; geographies served, etc – and on the primary business of the vendors (general master data management, front office vs middle and back office suite providers, specialized investment services reference data management solution providers).
I’ve compiled quite a list of vendors to whom I am reaching out. My questions to you:
- Are there particular vendors you would like us to invite to participate?
- Different vendor segmentations or use cases you would like us to explore?
