Black Knight, Inc., an award-winning provider of integrated software, data, and analytics to the mortgage, secondary market, and real estate industries, announced the acquisition of eMBS Inc, which provides performance data and analytics on agency-backed securities to all market participants to inform better investment decisions and increase the yields on their mortgage-backed securities. With about $7.5 trillion in agency MBS outstanding, the expense of managing reliable and timely databases and analytics is costly and time-consuming, even for the savviest investors.

Clients provide access to granular organization statistics as well as summarised database-ready information with pre-calculated prepayments and several market aggregations. By removing the need for mortgage-specific databases, data feeds, and systems used to update, calculate, aggregate, and display this data, using eMBS' capabilities will eliminate the costs of data, systems, and resources. Black Knight will further incorporate eMBS technologies into its data and analytics solutions, including its AFT Prepayment & Default Model, which is now widely used by agency MBS investors to help forecast securities' potential results. Furthermore, integrating eMBS data with Black Knight's McDash loan output database improves the consistency of the AFT models, offering an unparalleled view of mortgage risk. Along with its ever-expanding marketplace of data properties, Black Knight's Rapid Analytics Platform can provide unparalleled ease of access to eMBS data in a cloud-based data science studio. About eMBS eMBS, based in Tampa, Fla., uses internet technology to provide all industry players with nuanced MBS information and analytics.

The majority of organizations surveyed are managing more than 1PB of data and spending more than 30% of IT budgets on data storage and protection -- a cost overhead that’s showing no signs of slowing down. Yet this unstructured data -- application data, user documents, video and images, research files -- represents untapped insights for future business value. IT leaders realize that migrating data to the cloud can help cut costs and enable data monetization. The survey finds that they need analytics to help devise a cloud data management strategy for better planning, cost savings and support for cloud-based data lake and AI projects. Highlights of the survey: Unstructured Data is Growing as are its Costs 65.5% of organizations spend more than 30% of their IT budgets on data storage and management. Most (62.5%) will spend more on storage in 2021 versus 2020. Getting More Data to the Cloud is a Key Priority 50% of enterprises have data stored in a mix of on-premises and cloud-based storage. Top priorities for cloud data management include: migrating data to the cloud (56%) cutting storage and data costs (46%) and governance and security of data in the cloud (41%). IT Leaders want Visibility First Before Investing in More Storage Investing in analytics tools was the highest priority (45%) over buying more cloud or on-premises storage or modernizing backups. One-third of enterprises acknowledge that over 50% of data is cold while 20% don’t know, suggesting a need to right-place data through its lifecycle. Unstructured Data Management Goals & Challenges: Visibility, Cost Management and Data Lakes 44.9% wish to avoid rising costs. 44.5% want better visibility for planning. 42% are interested in tagging data for future use and enabling data lakes. “The Komprise 2021 State of Unstructured Data Management Report provides valuable insights into key customer priorities in unstructured data management,” said Krishna Subramanian, President and COO of Komprise. “The survey shows that enterprises want analytics and systematic data management to make the best decisions on cloud migrations and archiving. The end goal is to cut storage costs and create new value from unstructured data over time.” About Komprise Komprise is the industry’s only multi-cloud data management-as-a-service that frees you to easily analyze, mobilize, and access the right file and object data across clouds without shackling your data to any vendor.
