IHS Markit (INFO), a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions, today announced that it has won two categories in the 2019 Sell-Side Technology Awards presented by Waters Technology. IHS Markit won ‘Best Use of the Agile Methodology’ for its FRTB solution and ‘Best Sell-Side Data Management Product’ for its Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solution. It is the sixth time that EDM has won this category.
“This award recognizes the investments we’ve made in our EDM solution to ensure it meets the sellside’s evolving requirements,” said Andrew Eisen, global head of EDM and thinkFolio at IHS Markit. “Our new data visualization tools help banks to better surface data, while our recently developed pre-packaged solutions for processes like independent price verification (IPV) make key functionality more easily available for clients, leading to reduced implementation time and cost. This year we are focusing on integrations with several of our other sellside offerings to expand EDM and deliver new use cases.”
It is the first time that IHS Markit has entered the agile category in the awards. As agile becomes the established methodology for product development, it is creating more innovative ways to add value and deliver better products.
“Agile is about more than following a process and having good infrastructure - it is about rapidly delivering greater value for our clients,” said Andrew Aziz, global head of Financial Risk Analytics at IHS Markit. “When the FRTB regulations changed in January this year, we quickly confirmed the product changes with our clients and the regulator and applied an agile methodology that enabled us to release the updated FRTB product within a month. We’re excited to see how agile will further improve our product development this year.”
