INDATA iPM - Intelligent Portfolio Management® is a new platform and set of technologies for buy-side firms that allow end users to collaborate in real-time across the enterprise. iPM is designed to increase end user productivity, enhance the investment process and offers real-time risk, compliance and performance monitoring as well as integrated tools for marketing.
According to Denise Valentine, an analyst of research advisory firm Aite Group, top business priorities for asset managers in 2010 emphasize new business development, attention to supporting and enhancing the investment process, and risk mitigation through system and process improvement.

Asset managers need technology to help meet these goals with ease and speed." says Valentine.
