JP Morgan, Northern Trust Search For Data Quality

The quest for greater data quality is driving new projects at investment firms such as JP Morgan and Northern Trust, data management executives from those firms told attendees at a webcast on April 17, sponsored by SmartStream, S&P Capital IQ and Inside Reference Data.

Overall, the functions that are proving important for improving the quality of data are verification, immediacy, metrics and regulation, the executives said, as did officials from data service providers who spoke in the program.
