A global fintech with over $8 billion market capitalization that handles millions of trades each day involving trillions of dollars, supports communications that reach 75% of North American households, and manages shareholder voting in 90 countries, leveraged Semaphore's Semantic AI platform as part of their Data Fabric, which regulates and supports the processing, analysis, and management of enterprise data.
The project - a global post trade management application – supports the organization’s information initiatives to:
Semaphore is a key component in the Data Fabric. Semaphore model management and visualization tools allow them to tune, streamline, simplify, and improve the model and enable them to deploy and integrate information universes.
The Data Fabric platform uses a document-centric NoSQL database. It combines data, search style indexing, and application server behaviours previously only available through discrete entities (i.e. databases, data warehouses, data lakes, or ETL tools).
The data fabric:
Using Semaphore’s Knowledge Model Management (KMM) model creation and governance capabilities, model developers, subject matter experts and other stakeholders iteratively created a common and standardized set of taxonomies using industry standards such as FIBO, SWIFT. Semaphore’s task-based model governance capabilities allowed them to improve model security, manage versioning, and eliminate manual model, term, and relationship tracking via spreadsheet.
Semaphore’s Model Mapping Tool (MMT) enabled them to automatically create relationships between proprietary and industry-standard concepts. This allows them to integrate Semaphore’s model index into the data fabric to identify and capture the sequence of information for financial transactions from the clearing house.
The organization has a harmonized set of financial vocabularies, which include proprietary and industry-standard information, that are consistently used across departments. Model versioning and governance workflows support existing enterprise policies and best practices associated with model changes in a precise and consistent manner
Semaphore’s modules and capabilities allow them to tune, streamline, simplify and improve the ontology using a collaborative and iterative process:
The Data Fabric and its associated services are foundational for the organization’s next generation Global Post Trade Management Platform (GPTM) technology. It allows them to easily deploy new and integrate existing universes to support their clients.
