The global solution will be implemented in a phased approach, beginning with centralizing the firmâs market data.
"In an extensive vendor comparison, part of our criteria for selecting a data management solution was to find a vendor that could offer a flexible, robust solution capable of centralizing Calyonâs data for the risk, middle and back office, globally across all departments, to underpin our critical business applications,â said Louis TrÃ©hondart, Managing Director of Calyon. âFollowing a thorough analysis of the marketplace, we found that Asset Controlâs AC Plus was a cost effective solution to deploy, offering improved business benefits and value, both short and long term.
The solution will manage data from external data sources as well as internal sources, and will include equity, fixed income, foreign exchange, derivatives and commodities data. AC Plus will consolidate the management of Calyonâs reference data, corporate actions, and pricing data. Calyon will additionally utilize Asset Controlâs workflow to improve process management, ensuring efficient handling of the data to users and applications. The resulting high-quality consolidated information will be distributed to many diverse applications within the risk, middle and back-office, within Calyon. With a centralized database in Paris, Calyon users globally will access the solution via the AC Desktop.
âPlanning to centralize data management globally, across multiple business lines is a significant undertaking. Key in these decisions is having the confidence in the capabilities of the chosen technology and the solutionâs ability to provide quality data management.
