for real time decision making and regulatory compliance
London - 11th March 2013, DST Global Solutions, a market-leading provider of technology and data management solutions for the investment management industry, announces the introduction of the concept of "Intelligent Alerts", in their Anova data management solution. This will help allow targeted warnings and updates to be broadcast instantly. Anova is now delivered with preconfigured alerts in key areas including current market value of a portfolio, unexpected gains or losses and compliance breaches.
"Increasingly our customers do not want to make tomorrow's decisions based on yesterday's data," comments Julian Webb, DST's Global Head of Data Management and Analytics. "Our clients want to be alerted on significant occurrences when they happen. In the world of investment management a delay of minutes can significantly impact decisions and regulatory compliance. A key part of our product roadmap is to ensure that Anova continues to help deliver accurate, up-to- date analytics to inform real time decision-making."
DST's Anova solution provides investment industry with a software product suite offering post- trade data aggregation, comprehensive performance measurement and analytics, position keeping, compliance and a range of reporting options. Anova is designed to provide transparency across all investment data to meet the business, regulatory and operational challenges of service level agreements and other expectations.
The version (Version 2.1) released today also provides support for ad hoc performance returns. Performance teams are finding that the varying and proliferating demands for information from internal and external clients are creating a significant overhead on scarce resources. Versions 2.1 introduces an intuitive, "self-service" interface for building returns based on specific, user-defined criteria. "The ability to generate ad hoc custom performance returns comes up in every conversation we have with performance specialists," continues Webb. "The way we deliver this is innovative and will be very well received be users."
