Citi adds additional features to Citi Velocity Clarity
Citi has made key enhancements to Citi Velocity Clarity, its data and analytics platform which utilises big data and private cloud technology.
Citi Velocity Clarity consolidates and analyses data across multiple Citi Custody and Fund Services (CFS) capabilities. It leverages Citi’s private cloud-based, secure big data on demand infrastructure to enable fast and efficient consumption of information drawn from multiple sources. Content can be consolidated into Clarity from a variety of Citi’s Custody and Fund Services systems, clients’ own internal data, and third-party data providers.
The latest enhancements include a new user interface aimed at offering seamless integration across existing dashboard, reporting and API components, plus the ability to move between functions and content to access an expanded library of user-customisable visualisations across accounting, custody, performance, risk and analytics data.
The platform now offers advanced capabilities to bookmark saved settings and filters for easy retrieval of custom dashboards, plus the ability to configure dashboard visualisations into highly customisable graphical reports with flexible and powerful filtering capabilities.
Users can also create Application Programming Interface (API) subscriptions to access the Clarity Big Data Lake content.
“As a pilot user of Clarity, we’ve been very pleased with the interactive nature of the platform and the additional flexibility that it has given us to swiftly interrogate and interpret data,” says Dan Hadden, Fund Accounting Oversight Manager, Old Mutual Global Investors. “The development pipeline is very promising and we believe that the platform will ultimately prove to be a very powerful tool.”
“We are pleased to announce these exciting new enhancements as a continued demonstration of our ongoing investment and commitment to Citi’s Custody and Fund Service offering globally,” says Sanjiv Sawhney (pictured), Global Head of Custody and Fund Services. “During the initial rollout of Clarity over the last 12 months, client and marketplace reception has been very positive.”
Clarity is fully integrated with Citi Velocity, the award-winning research and trading platform, thereby providing clients with a single point of entry to access Citi’s data, analytics, research and execution services.
