Using blade systems to cut costs and sharpen efficiencies

Tech Panel We have a new study awaiting your input. It's specific to Financial Services, so if you don't have any involvement in that industry then we thank you, and you can skip this one. We'll be in touch again soon.

If you do work in any part of the FS industry, we'd really appreciate your input....

We frequently hear statements like "We're drowning in data, and yet there's no way to get a snap shot of how the business is doing". "We know we have the information, but we can't get at it". "Right information, right time, right place - nice dream".

Given the plethora of software and services on offer that promise to address all of those needs and issues, what is it that's still not right?

That's why we want to find out how your organisation is doing with regard to managing and retrieving information. What tools are you using? What for? What's going well? What are the obstacles to improving things?

It doesn't matter whether you work for a big investment bank, or a small IFA - please let us have your views (and simply ignore questions that don't apply to your environment).

You can get cracking here.

As always, we're hugely grateful of your input, and will publish the results when we've analysed them. All previous studies are available here
