Market Data presents a large cost to the business. DataContent’s Smart Sourcing will leverage market data as a cost effective resource and maximise the Return on Market Data Investment (MDI). This guarantees the business directly profits from all MDI by licensing the data it needs to make superior decisions, while reducing punitive liabilities through unlicensed and out of contract data usage.


DataContent's uniquely developed tools maximises licensing rights and MDI, minimises risk and increases what we term ‘Return on Data Investment' (RDI).
