Here’s Why Your Financial Firm Needs End-to-End Lineage Across Workflows and What Can Happen Without it

Reading time: 4 min   |  By Sonia Chopra   |  Published in Articles,

Within a financial institution, data is scattered across the firm’s landscape, residing in various silos, databases, data lakes, warehouses, and systems. These silos create significant challenges when it comes to managing data quality, gaining knowledge, and using it effectively. Therefore, firms lacking end-to-end (E2E) visibility and therefore the ability to actively track the lineage of their data encounters significant bottlenecks when it comes to operations, regulatory compliance, and business decision-making.

The Importance of E2E Visibility and Lineage Across Workflows

Without having a unified view across the organization, firms struggle with data quality, traceability, and auditability, especially when either the lineage of data is unknown or the genesis is poorly sourced.

When firms are unable to gain an end-to-end view nor track the transformations of their data over time, they can experience the following challenges:

  • A reduction in operational efficiency when teams must use extra resources to perform exception management, root-cause analysis, and error resolution.
  • Difficulties in providing auditability and traceability of inaccurate data in reports to regulators, resulting in hefty fines and an increase in capital reserve requirements.
  • The inability to accurately piece together knowledge to efficiently produce high-quality and actionable business insights.

Business Benefits of E2E Lineage

When firms are able to confidently track the lineage of their data and metadata across workflows, they can ensure data quality and process correctness.

Operational Efficiency
Firms can more easily identify and resolve exceptions by having an end-to-end view of each piece of datum.

Regulatory Compliance
By tracking the lineage of data, firms can audit reports and respond to regulatory inquiries more efficiently.

Business Decision-Making

Through E2E visibility and real-time lineages, firms can have more confidence in their analytics and actionable insights.
