This book offers a key resource for understanding and implementing effective data governance practices and data modeling within financial organizations. Keenan outlines the strategies and tools needed for financial institutions to take charge and make the much-needed decisions to ensure that their firm's information processing assets are effectively designed, deployed, and utilized to meet the strict regulatory guidelines. It includes practical observations about how information assets can be actively and effectively managed to create competitive advantage and improved financial results. It also includes a survey of case studies that highlight both the positive and less positive results that have stemmed from institutions either recognizing or failing to recognize the strategic importance of information processing capabilities. -- Edited summary from book.
