Analysing data can generate business insights that can help BFSI organizations identify, consolidate and filter data to spot monetization avenues and transform customer experiences. It also helps organizations improve business value and operational efficiency. Data analytics tools can consolidate and filter all of this data to draw out the most relevant insights to improve efficiency, profitability and productivity. Some players operating in the data and analytics domain for the BFSI sector include Actify DataLabs, SG Analytics, Amglo Labs, among others.
According to Gartner’s top 10 data and analytics trends for 2021, instead of being a secondary focus, data and analytics is shifting to a core function implying that businesses are realizing the potential of data and analytics to accelerate digital business initiatives.
