Advances in data and technology are rapidly transforming the financial services industry, yet developers within investment firms continue to spend significant time and energy customizing various tools to manage, interpret, and analyze financial data at scale. Many of the existing solutions for financial data management and analysis are based on a patchwork of legacy technologies that struggle to meet the latency and scale requirements of modern investment practices. As a result, investment firms may spend their engineering expertise managing undifferentiated infrastructure and arguing over data, instead of innovating at the speed they’d like for their clients. the collaboration between goldman sachs and aws will greatly reduce the need for investment firms to develop and maintain critical data integration technology, and lower the barriers to entry to access advanced quantitative analytics in global markets. institutional clients of goldman sachs will be able to accelerate the time to market of financial applications, optimize their resources to focus on portfolio returns and innovate faster. Users of the Goldman Sachs Financial Cloud for Data will also benefit from more streamlined and secure access to best-in-class financial data from Goldman Sachs.

As a result, it is now easier for developers to analyze a wide range of financial data sets consistently and at scale using the latest quantitative techniques, accelerating time to market value.
