Indata, a leading industry provider of software, technology and managed services for buy-side firms, today announced the release of Architect AI Data Analytics, a SaaS (software-as-a-service) solution that provides investment managers with the ability to more easily aggregate data in order to provide enterprise-wide business intelligence reporting.
Part of INDATA’s cloud-based, web-based Architect AI suite of products that leverage AI and machine learning, Architect AI Data Analytics provides clients with the ability to easily aggregate data from various sources, resulting in a central data repository which then can be used to create web-based, interactive dashboard visualizations and reports for portfolio managers, traders, marketing, client services, operations and senior executives. Architect AI Data Analytics can be used on a stand-alone basis integrating with other third-party systems or in conjunction with INDATA’s other products for trading and portfolio management.
According to Gartner, “Investment firms urgently need to focus on figuring out how to make better decisions based on the data they have available. They need to provide real-time access to that data, with a flexible model that can easily accommodate new asset types and that supports analytics across the firm. The result will be an analytics platform that sits on top of a data-centric middle office. A well-designed, well-implemented business intelligence (BI) and analytics platform can deliver important long-term benefits. These include improved data accessibility and processing, the introduction of predictive analytics tools, and the ability to recruit the hard-to-find talent needed to turn data into insight.”1
Unlike traditional data warehouses and data management systems that require extensive resources to implement and maintain and that come at a very high cost, Architect AI Data Analytics utilizes the latest tech tools including Microsoft Power BI to easily interrogate and report on data, saving significant time. As a SaaS solution, the system is web-based and does not require installation, technical expertise or in-house programming resources that are usually associated with such systems. Architect AI Data Analytics is available via INDATA’s iPM Private Cloud or via Microsoft Azure depending on client preference and requirements.
“We are excited to launch Architect AI Data Analytics which we feel presents a compelling solution for investment managers looking to harness the power of BI reporting and also implement modern technology tools that will position them effectively for emerging trends like AI,” commented David Csiki, President of INDATA. “This is our second product launch this year following the success of our iPM Portal release in May and our launch of Architect AI in the previous year, which is part of our continued roadmap of enhancements that offer digitally transformative technologies to clients,” he added.
