SlyceData to launch Investment Research Intelligence Engine with Snowflake

SlyceData Corporation
SlyceData has announced the release of a Snowflake-powered intelligent financial data wrangling and analytics platform. Investment analysts may use this solution from SlyceData and Snowflake, the Data Cloud provider, to seamlessly examine and extract their numerous financial data sources across vendors, substantially speeding up the production of investment ideas.

With its one integrated platform, Snowflake's Data Cloud provides customers access to a wide range of data sources. Snowflake, a technological initiative that accelerates the capacity of enterprises and application developers to produce innovative apps, powers SlyceData's technology. SlyceData takes advantage of Snowflake's performance and versatility to enable clients to easily merge their numerous financial data sources, allowing them to identify insights and generate portfolio returns more effectively.

SlyceData and Snowflake handle the time-consuming but critical challenge of producing research-ready data for investment analysis, allowing customers to tap into new sources and get fresh insights. As per a recent HBR article, data scientists spend 80% of their time preparing data and just 20% evaluating it, which is something SlyceData wants to change.

VP of Equity Investment Management Technology at AllianceBernstein, Mike Bauer, said that "Access to a vast range of data in the research-ready form is crucial for our organization's success. SlyceData and Snowflake are building technology to dramatically simplify the work of data delivery and wrangling, and we're very excited to see the value it should bring."

"We're delighted to work with Snowflake to provide customers with ready-to-use data at their fingertips. Our mission is to empower customers to get the most out of their data, to drive performance."

Radiant Logic Announces RadiantOne AI, with New Generative AI Data Assistant “AIDA”

Radiant Logic | January 11, 2024

Radiant Logic, the Identity Data Fabric company, today unveiled RadiantOne AI, its data lake powered Artificial Intelligence engine, and AIDA, its Generative AI Data Assistant. RadiantOne AI is designed to complement your existing tech stack and governance products by correlating data across multiple sources and providing contextual information to drive better decision making. The result is a radical reduction in the time and resources needed to gather the data required to effectively meet audit demands—meaning fewer security gaps and increased compliance with organizational policies. The first capability to be unveiled on RadiantOne AI is a truly automated user access review (UAR) process, expertly guided by AIDA. Many business leaders are familiar with the tedious UAR process – it’s crucial for demonstrating compliance and improving organizational security posture. But laborious processes can often end in a “bulk approval” to save time and check an audit box instead of accurately reviewing access rights to ensure the right business outcomes. RadiantOne’s AI-driven approach will be a paradigm shift in the way people work, forever transforming and streamlining the usually time-consuming UAR process down to days and minutes instead of months. “Historically, user access reviews are a highly manual process–a ‘necessary evil’ within security practices. This approach not only creates fatigue for the team but also introduces a considerable amount of risk,” says Dr. John Pritchard, Chief Product Officer at Radiant Logic. “While this may work in the short term to satisfy auditor requirements, the company’s assets are never truly protected. There is also still the risk that something may be overlooked, or someone within the business has retained access to something they shouldn’t. With RadiantOne AI and AIDA, existing IAM and IGA processes can be automated and simplified for overworked teams trying to comb through mountains of user access data to make the right decisions to protect their organizations.” With RadiantOne AI, conducting a user access review becomes as easy as following AIDA’s guidance. Using the power of large language models to drive advanced data correlation, contextualization and analysis, combined with an intuitive data visualization dashboard, AIDA will reinvent the user access review ritual. Based on an organization's proprietary data, the fully guided UAR experience will allow reviewers to interact and pose questions to AIDA using natural human language, like “where does this access come from?” or “show me who else has these access rights?” AIDA will highlight any potential user access risks, offer expert insight, and suggest remediations or access modifications based on an organization’s policies. Any changes, such as low risk bulk access approvals or revoking atypical access rights, are completed via a click of a button, so there’s less training required to complete the reviews and less risk of human error during the process. RadiantOne AI’s AIDA-guided user access review capability works to provide enterprise organizations with: Automated workflows: Leverage vast data sets and contextual insights to make intelligent and confident decisions about access rights. Simplified compliance: Easily detect over-privileged accounts or atypical access rights with intuitive data visualization techniques. Greater visibility into user actions: Get beyond roles quickly to see who has access to what and how they received that access so insights and remediations are easily actionable. Click-button remediation: Based on the insights and recommendations from AIDA, reviewers can approve or revoke access or atypical rights individually or take bulk approval/rejection actions with the click of a button. Data into the hands of business owners: Put relevant, risk-based identity data insights into the hands of business users in the language they understand to make it a breeze to adhere to compliance policies. “User access reviews with AIDA are just the beginning,” comments Joe Sander, Radiant Logic’s CEO. “Using RadiantOne’s AI engine, we see potential to revolutionize identity data management, governance, risk, compliance and cybersecurity processes by removing complexity as a roadblock. This frees up critical IT and security resources to focus on other business-critical tasks and expands the role of identity to truly be a business enabler.” RadiantOne AI comes on the heels of the completion of the integration of Brainwave Identity Analytics into the RadiantOne Identity Data Platform. AIDA will initially be available as a complement to the RadiantOne Identity Analytics solution. About Radiant Logic Radiant Logic, the identity data experts, helps organizations turn identity data into a strategic asset that drives automated governance, enhanced security, and operational efficiency. Our RadiantOne Identity Data Platform removes complexity as a roadblock to identity-first strategies by creating an authoritative data source for real-time, context-aware controls. We provide visibility and actionable insights to intelligently detect and remediate risk using AI/ML-powered identity analytics. With RadiantOne, organizations are able to tap into the wealth of information across the infrastructure, combining context and analytics to deploy governance that works for the most advanced use cases.
