User Profiling from Screen Consultants enables market data administrators, analysts and business managers to easily evaluate user and desk profiles. Profiling can help Financial Institutions manage their market data costs and gain greater control by challenging market data requests and reducing market data vendor dependencies.
Effective market data management starts with knowing your user- base.
Screen profiles consist of:
• Data and functionality requirements of each user/ desk
• Market data services accessed by each / desk
• User dependencies that may prevent straight forward product substitution (data, spreadsheets, applications, trading features, etc.).
Profiling can then be used to visualize data needs and for challenging misconceptions and preconceptions around market data services and advise on alternative services which may not have previously been considered.
