The data revolution has created seismic impact in every business sector, from life sciences to tourism, but few industries have experienced a technology-driven disruption quite like finance.
An expanding universe of financial and economic data is creating new technology-enabled job classes throughout the industry. Sophisticated algorithms are able to make smart trades faster and more reliably than humans. And new and evolving capabilities in data analysis and visualization are enabling greater agility for savvy investors, while introducing new risks and systemic challenges.
