3d innovations (3di), a global data management software and services firm to buy and sell side participants, has hired market data specialist John Ikel from BNP Paribas to head up its main consulting and product unit for data governance.

Janelle Veasey, director and co-founder, 3d innovations, said, "We have spent fifteen years engaged in the financial markets building strong expertise in the governance and licensing domain. As part of a natural restructuring required due to the company's continued growth and success, we have brought John onboard to add the wealth of his experience in taking our regtech practice to the next level."

3di reported 20 percent revenue and profit growth in 2016, and struck a number of important partnerships in the industry, notably with Infogix and TRG. As a result of this success and continued market need, Ikel will take over the compliance and policies aspects of ongoing development with 3di flagship products Profiler and Data Compliance and Dependency Manager (DCDM). He will also lead the company's consulting teams in data governance engagements.

"I have been aware of 3di's outstanding competency and successful client engagements in the industry for over a decade. Having reviewed their products and plans, I am enthusiastic and optimistic to join a group of enlightened and dynamic professionals for the next stage of its development," said John Ikel, head of data compliance and licensing, 3di.

In his previous role as head of market data compliance and audit at BNP Paribas, Ikel spent a considerable amount of time reviewing various consultancies and solutions, making internal recommendations where appropriate. As part of the 3di team, Ikel will play a crucial role in the rollout of the company's July release of its new Exchanges and Trading Venue's policies module. The module constitutes the primary upgrade in Profiler version 4 and ensures the policies and rights management data is available within DCDM so that managed applications can be tagged with the appropriate policies.

Ikel said, "Housing all the necessary factors you need to effectively survey data licensing within one analytical dashboard is very important. The fact that DCDM can upload and interface into market data inventories, as well as directly access vendor and exchange policy content is very important. A single application and data management portal is exactly what the industry needs. It's a big move forward in transitioning market data management into a genuine business intelligence function."

Stephen Veasey, 3di CEO and co-founder, will be addressing market data risk management at the FISD General Meeting in New York on June 15, 2017.

3d innovations Starts Mapping the Future of Market Data and Reference Data Management

Upgraded application and data mapping tool now includes enterprise data model to improve app integration and reporting capabilities for buy and sell side institutions

London, UK and New York, NY, 30/09/2015

3d innovations (3di), a data management services company, today released version 3.0 of its Data Compliance and Dependency Manager (DCDM). Part of its 3di Managed Services Suite, the upgraded data compliance tool now supports a full-enterprise data model so buy and sell side participants can rely on DCDM to act as a book of records for any applications using and distributing market data and / or reference data.

“Recording all application data usage, version 3.0 now mirrors the same data used by e.g. trading, risk or portfolio management applications throughout the enterprise,” said Janelle Veasey, Director of Operations & Services, 3d innovations. “We now have the ability to integrate with these applications and structure their data in a way that is consistent with vendor licensing and end-user consumption.”

“Instead of focusing on internal reporting forms such as dashboards and end user data reports, DCDM 3.0 adds business logic. Market participants can now access and compute real application data sets, enabling them to issue accurate vendor, exchange, index provider or broker declarations,” said Janelle Veasey, Director of Operations & Services, 3d innovations.

While the product is still in the early adopter phase, a handful of clients are already running proof of concepts (POC). Company executives expect many of these POCs to transition to full production during the next 12 months.

Janelle Veasey, Director of Operations & Services, 3d innovations, adds, “DCDM 3.0 and solutions like it are the future of effective market data and reference data management. Buy and sell side institutions cannot license and manage data distribution in a compliant and efficient fashion without a clear, holistic view of where the data is and how it is being used in every part of the organization”.
