Data Lineage Overview


Global standards such as BCBS 239, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or US Federal Reserve CFO Attestation require banks to be accountable for their datasets and strengthen their risk data aggregation capabilities and risk reporting practices. Bank executives responsible for submitting reports and attesting to the numbers and positions need to trust their governance process in order to confidently sign off those reports. The person responsible for reporting should have confidence that the numbers and positions are correct.

Data Lineage GPS


AxiomSL’s data lineage technology can be compared to a GPS tracking your “data route” from the source to the final destination while collecting all types of critical information and analytics that will streamline and optimize the bank’s processes along the way.

AxiomSL’s data lineage GPS captures and documents data flows, data transformations, critical data elements and business logic from the point of data entry to the final regulatory or internal management report. The intelligence it gathers yields business value and faster time to market, and delivers the most “reliable and trusted route” to get to your targeted destination confidently and in a timely fashion.

Bank executives are thinking strategically about their data, especially when initiatives such as BCBS 239 have made data lineage a top concern. Regulators are asking for more information on a granular level on a timely basis from quarterly to weekly and in some cases daily.

Tactical approaches and manual processes used to capture lineage and even document it in Excel are not sustainable and create operational inefficiencies. Automation will also free-up highly skilled analysts, who can be used for data analysis rather than preparing reports or solving reconciliation issues. The cornerstone of data governance begins with data lineage, and high data integrity enables banks to enhance their decision process and drive business growth.

AxiomSL’s Data Tracer allows users to track the data flow of financial instruments rom the initial source to the final report. This is a game changer because users can now see all the different reports that reflect their positions in one place.
