This can be hampered by the use of overlapping, legacy systems, which are unable to accommodate new asset classes and create confusion over where master data lies. They also create infrastructure that is costly and complex to maintain.
It goes on to consider the evolution of the industry response to this issue, finding that even standalone data management platforms can have failings in causing data fragmentation. In addition, overlaying new platforms over legacy systems is a “flawed compromise” that fails to address core challenges of providing reliability and quality data.
The paper concludes by outlining the ideal solution – an integrated, modular platform fed from a single source. This solves the problem of siloed data and complex maintenance arrangements, and allows business users to extract timely, accurate data when they need it.
