FinTech Breakthrough has named Experian‘s Ascend Analytic Sandbox as winner of the “Best Overall Analytics Platform” as part of its awards program. The information services company was thrilled to be recognised for the second consecutive year, this time for empowering firms to take advantage of the increasingly voluminous consumer and market data.
The Ascend Analytic Sandbox combines industry-standard analytics, data visualisation tools and real-time-accessible data in a hybrid-cloud environment complete with industry and technical experts to maximise insights. James Johnson, Managing Director FinTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence and recognition platform for technology innovation and leadership, attributed Experian’s success to answering the “[Struggle] to find robust and reliable data and analytics platforms that provide them with the insights needed to confidently build products and scale their businesses.”
With current regulatory trends both for consumers to take back control of their data, and for companies to have greater (consented) access to it, Experian are driven to empower the greatest usage of these opportunities with a suite of analytical tools and advice. This was echoed by their CIO, Vijay Mehta, who noted the troubles of “staying ahead of constantly changing market conditions and customer demands,” lauding Ascend Analytical Sandbox as the answer “giving financial institutions the fastest access to the freshest data so they can get the most out of their analytics and engage their customers with the best decisions”.
The FinTech Breakthrough Awards provide public recognition for the achievements of FinTech companies and products in categories including Payments, Personal Finance, Wealth Management, Fraud Protection, Banking, Lending, RegTech, InsurTech and more.
