The proliferation of data is a significant challenge for banks: Hakkoda’s Latest Research Study shows that 44% of financial services companies use five or more different data solutions. Financial institutions are heavily divided into business lines and rarely rely on their own IT groups. This promotes a sense of decentralized data stores as well as a lack of cohesion and alignment.

“The banking industry is being disrupted by new fintech entrants and the key for traditional banks to compete with new options is to unlock the value of data dispersed across the institution,” said Erik Duffield, CEO and co-founder of Hakkoda. “As technology becomes an agent of change for the financial services industry, many institutions are struggling to find resources and talent for their data programs. Hakkoda has the expertise to solve both their data challenges and Under Anand’s leadership, Hakkoda can help financial institutions realize the true value of their data, delivering innovative results that turn data and analytics into a competitive advantage.”
