Historical data from the enterprise data management programs within our clients offer a level of quality management and predictive capabilities, if harnessed appropriately. In one example, legal entity data that has been classified with NAICS codes can offer machine learning opportunities to build models that can verify the classification accuracy of millions of entities, including additionally predicting the NAICS classifications of newly onboarded entities. In another example, retailers benefit from recommendations learned from past consumer behavior, for the benefit of timely product and complementary offerings.

Over the past few years, public accounting firms have invested in having financial institutions provide them files of holdings and transactions, which is commonly referred to as broker data import (BDI) and financial interest integration (FII). These files are then imported into their personal independence system to enhance ease-of-use and robust disclosure. By automating the import of brokerage data, compliance is increased dramatically and user satisfaction with the process goes up dramatically. To the extent that a process can be put in place to reduce the need for a user to log into a system and accomplish the goals of that process, the better. Also, by automating the process, disclosure of financial interests are automated. No longer are there situations where a person forgets to disclose - the system does it automatically every day. Regulators have been pushing organizations to move beyond policy to automated controls that provide compliance with the policy. Automatically importing the data is a powerful response.
