Business Insight PapersBrickendon’s expert consultants take a deeper look at some of the main challenges facing our clients, offering sectoral analysis, providing detailed solutions and outlining the benefits of implementing change.
With the MiFID II implementation deadline already behind us, Brickendon’s experts look at the issues associated with data quality and lineage and why it pays to have a globally consistent strategic and holistic approach to sourcing and populating data.
Britain’s decision to leave the EU means many things for the financial services sector, including the possibility of being unable to properly service clients in all regions post-Brexit. Brickendon’s experts look at how best to prepare for all eventualities and avoid potentially significant losses of income.
RPA – Robotic Process Automation – is not about robots taking our jobs. It is about enabling organisations to make the best use of their employees in areas that add value to the firm’s operations by delegating repetitive tasks to machines.
With the deadline for MiFID II compliance already having been delayed by a year to January 2018 in response to concerns about complexity, implementation plans should already be well under way in most financial institutions. Brickendon’s risk, regulation and data experts look at how implementing the correct Target Operating Model (TOM) could help organisations on the road to compliance.
With less than a year to go until the deadline for compliance with the new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), now is the time to prepare. Billed as the biggest change to data privacy laws in many years, GDPR has the potential to massively impact the financial services sector around the globe. Failure to comply could not only cost your business large amounts of money – as much as 4% of global revenue, but also damage your reputation and expose you to lawsuits from clients. Brickendon looks at the things you will have to consider and how you can turn compliance into an advantage for your business.
Britain’s decision to trigger Article 50 in March of 2017 has caused ramifications across all areas of the business world. Location optimisation decisions that were once focussed purely on cost are now seeking to ensure businesses will be able to continue to service customers across the UK and the European Union. Brickendon looks at the new challenges businesses are facing in the light of Brexit and offers advice on how best to address them.
The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, aka MiFID II, remains one of the most talked about regulations in the financial services sector. Its impacts are far reaching – both in terms of the macro structure of the overall financial markets and the internal functional areas within the financial institutions themselves.
Software QA traditionally poses many challenges. Brickendon’s Quality Maturity Model (QMM) solution improves both business and delivery opportunities through a structured programme of proven and measured testing methodologies. It increases transparency and efficiency, improves time-to-market and tracks progress towards the client’s goals.
