Unified Information Access Can Offer A Competitive Advantage

Banks can use UIA to aggregate, connect and distribute information to targeted processes and audiences across many channels.

Most financial institutions are under significant pressure to reduce costs. Adopting an agile information model is a critical step in creating a meaningful competitive advantage. Unified Information Access (UIA) helps organizations get the best return on information by aggregating, connecting and distributing information to targeted processes and audiences across many channels -- applications, alerts, websites, dashboards, mobile devices and more.

Flexibility is the key advantage of implementing UIA. The universal information repository not only retains explicit data relationships, but extracts and links entities from content, so the aggregated information is intelligent and relational -- which in turn means that users get all the insight they need quickly. Developers can apply either fuzzy search-style queries to optimize for relevancy or standard SQL to construct more complex or precise queries. Users, who can retrieve information with free-form, search-style queries and advanced navigation techniques, gain on both ends: the method of seeking information is intuitive, and the pool of information is complete.

How is Information Unified?

UIA provides five core capabilities to ensure insight, flexibility and ease of implementation and use:
