Data integration for regulatory reports improves Banks’ approach to Data Centralization
For the past few years, there has been a drastic change to Indian Banking. Right from the rise of customer-centric banking products to the inclusion of new payment modes, more and more activities aim to improve customer experience, promote financial inclusivity, and increase informed lending.
Because of this shift, its dependency on technologies has increased, directly impacting the number of digital services and data generation. Subsequently, Banks need to manage their assets and liabilities better. In doing so, they can proactively adopt data systems that align with future goals.
In digitalization, regulators see scope for huge improvements in risk monitoring. Instead of just being responsible for customers’ misdoings after the deed is done, a comprehensive approach to data-first banking helps with proactive risk management.
Let's how policies that promote digitalization like the mandate for Automated Data Flow (ADF) benefit Banks in the long run.
Automated Data Flow: One Answer to All Banking Reporting Woes
RBI introduced the initiative of Automated Data Flow (ADF) in 2010. The Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) approach paper outlines a framework for putting in place a Central Data Repository (CDR) with various layers for data acquisition, data integration, data conversion, data validation, and data submission.
Since there is heavy diversification of systems, Banks require software experts that can be either third-party vendors or in-house IT teams. The data used in ADF reporting also works for detailed research reports such as Ind AS, IGAAP, and more.
Consequently, the process of centralizing data offers Banks a boost for internal data requirements such as cleansing, democratization, and research. Considering these benefits, Banks can preplan their data goals while implementing Automated Data Flow (ADF) method.
