This survey from State Street and the Economist Intelligence Unit is a pretty good look at the opportunities and challenges of using data in the financial services industry. Many respondents noted the challenge of integrating lots of data sources, which is understandable and probably only going to get harder. It seems there’s a lot of promise in new services/data sources such as Dataminr and Premise Data, but they also represent a pretty big divergence from tradition.
