Proper governance is vital to ensuring the accuracy, usability and security of data, which has now become the lifeblood of so many organizations. The right data solution, with the right governance, lineage and cataloging, is absolutely critical, particularly as outsourcing, and the associated movement of data, continues to increase. Specializing in portfolio management technology for alternative asset managers, Indus Valley Partners takes home the Best Data Governance Solution with its flexible and modular solutions that can be tailored to the specific requirements of any client’s portfolio management process.

The company’s Enterprise Data Management (EDM) platform has a built-in data governance module, with features including data quality management, exception management, workflows on exception, data correction and data stewardship.

It comes with a pre-built set of connections to various counterparties and market data vendors. These can be enabled and plugged into any existing data architecture and can connect to virtually any source, be it files, databases or application programming interfaces.

Users are able to model complete data flows with flexibility and can rapidly and seamlessly onboard the governance of new counterparties or funds and codify new rules. “We provide a built-in, pre-defined catalogue and dictionary, but with the ability to add more as the sell side invariably innovates. Being able to do this seamlessly, without requiring code change, is a big part of why we stand out,” says Gurvinder Singh, CEO.

Flexibility and business team empowerment are critical drivers within Indus Valley Partners’ solutions. “We have created a federal model of governance; IT teams are responsible for data delivery and for the ‘pipes’ that data flows through, but the content and the quality of that data is a business team role,” Singh explains. “Business users that have experienced this federal model feel so much more empowered. Rather than creating a single, top-down, data governance model, our solution provides flexibility at the individual team or group level. Our user interfaces are drag and drop, low-code, no-code, enabling business analysts to lay out their data flows, and we provide these self-servicing capabilities within all our tools.”

Looking forward over the next 12 to 18 months, Singh believes that “cost pressures mean outsourcing will continue unabated and, as a result, data management will become an even more critical success factor, reformulating many business models, especially within the buy side. Our goal will continue to be providing as much out of the box as possible to our clients, with rapid onboarding and strong self-servicing capabilities.
