Yes the white paper was centered on the issue of data quality and didn't get into the infrastructure issues that you're talking about. Systems and integration and infrastructure will also be important for banks to get the full view across the enterprise that will help in complying with all of the changing regulations.

Some of these also seem like analytics/data management best practices that could be applied in other ways, to other kinds of business requirements. That could be helpful to banks looking to leverage necessary investments in ALM-related systems & resources. What I don't see here is anything about the need to look at ALM across the enterprise & the related systems integration and infrastructure issues.
