B2B Data analytics News North America

US – Data and analytics software company Infogix and data management services firm 3d Innovations have partnered to give asset manager insights on their market data spend.

It will involve integrating Infogix’s data governance solutions with 3d Innovations’ web-based intelligence tools to give insight, via the data governance dashboard, on more than 800 market data services and vendors and 1,800 data products from more than 60 organisations.

Jeff Shortis, general manager of data governance at Infogix, said: “The process of surveying the market data landscape to assess vendor coverage, data quality, cost, and gain bench-marking information is intensive.

“By integrating 3di’s industry intelligence tools into our platform, we can now provide asset managers with access to detailed profiles and objective reviews on market data providers, making it easy for them to make well-informed decisions.”

Stephen Veasey, CEO of 3d Innovations, said: “In today’s day and age, you wouldn’t purchase a computer, buy a car, or go to a restaurant without reading honest user reviews or first-hand reports.

“We’ve taken 20 years of consulting experience and integrated the knowledge of more than 100 clients and market data service buyers to create the most comprehensive tool to capture evaluations on vendors to help our clients maximise their return on investment.”

The companies said the reviews follow a rigorous vetting process before going live.
