A large variety of information flows through a financial services firm. This information can come from a variety of sources, both external and internal. It is a significant task to reconcile the data from multiple sources and ensure that it is correct before being used within the firm.
In this paper we will describe the pipeline through which a portion (security master data) of this information flows. We will discuss a variety of issues impacting how the information is processed and stored. We will conclude the discussion with a proposed solution using the Entity-Attribute-Value (EAV) pattern. Though, we will focus on security master data, the same analysis can be applied to other types of data such as pricing data as well.
