A little bit about ourselves...

At Datactics we bring order and control to the chaotic data landscape for global banks, data vendors, major governments, and a wide range of firms operating in the financial sector.

Our suite of software tools is praised for their cutting-edge capabilities and end-user friendliness, thanks to their open architecture, process automation, and flexibility at handling an extremely wide range of data types, including individuals, entity, reference, and instruments. They are easily configurable to different challenges, rules or regulations, making any Datactics deployment extremely fast and low-maintenance.

The applications are practically limitless: our clients use these tools to achieve compliance with stringent financial regulations including BCBS 239, MiFID II and FSCS; to validate entities, instruments and individuals for Know Your Customer / AML and Master Data Management; to undertake targeted data mapping or matching exercises; and to implement continuous data quality measurement and improvement at a department or enterprise level.

Every implementation comes with the benefit of our development work in this environment, including many hundreds of rules pre-built, and full support from Datactics data engineers. We provide our services to fit our clients’ businesses, whether that’s entirely client-managed or maintained on a consultancy basis by our engineering team. This is just one reason why Datactics clients stated that they are the most satisfied in a recent industry survey; to join them, drop us a line and we’ll meet up.

Leadership

Our leaders and board have significant experience in financial data, banking and finance, and growing technologically advanced companies.
