Accomplishing Risk Management in Financial Services

Cognitect believes that data is the most valuable asset for modern businesses, especially for financial services firms. Unfortunately, most companies have locked away a lot of those assets in multiple datastores and are missing the most valuable part of having that data to begin with. We will demonstrate how Cognitect and our innovations such as Datomic have solved some seemingly impossible problems, namely Risk Management within Financial Services organizations. We will demonstrate how we achieved this for a Top 10 global bank while guaranteeing 100% data consistency across their systems.
