Faced with ever-increasing financial market volume and complexity, FINRA needed innovative AI/ML and big data initiatives to meet the challenges of our regulatory mission. However, siloed data, a siloed organization, and an aging technology environment were holding us back. FINRA needed a drastic shift in data strategy to foster innovation.
Early adoption of cloud technologies was a significant part of that strategy, but even more important was the breaking down of silos, both physical and organizational, to create a culture of collaboration where innovation could grow. In this case study we'll show you the path we took to collaboration and innovation and the lessons we learned along the way.
