PDx™ Design Guide: Optimizing Financial Services Data Exchange

The digital economy is remaking financial services organizations, transforming how they create and deliver value.

According to IDG, data volumes are growing at an average of 63% per month.1 By 2025, over 463 exabytes of data will be created each day.2

This rapid amplification of data volume—or “data gravity”— is a significant bottleneck for traditional IT infrastructures in the financial services industry. At the same time, a new digital economy is remaking how financial services organizations deliver value.

To succeed, financial services organizations need to:

  • Operate ubiquitously and on-demand
  • Augment workflows with real-time intelligence
  • Serve customers, partners, and employees across all channels, business functions, and points of business presence

Data Gravity forces a new architecture, one that inverts traffic flow and brings users, networks, and clouds to privately hosted enterprise data.

Developed by expert Solution Architects, this design guide works as a companion to the Optimizing Financial Services Data Exchange Blueprint found in the Pervasive Datacenter Architecture (PDx™) content library. It’s intended for business strategists, technology leaders, IT architects, and those responsible for the design and implementation of technology solutions.
