AIM Software has announced the new release of its financial data management platform GAIN. This platform offers extended facilities for golden copy management and adds two additional financial data feeds: EDI and Reuters DataScope Select. The main challenge in reference data management lies in the reduction of manual exception handling by automatic data scrubbing rules. To achieve this, GAIN 4.0 offers a golden copy platform that allows for multi data feed processing and provides advanced data consolidation functionalities along with a better usability and an intuitive GUI. The company says that the recent release helps to further boost the data quality by an automatic audit trailing and error-logging and supports the reduction of error-prone manual work. Furthermore, the overall performance could be further increased to realize additional processing efficiency. Currently GAIN 4.0 is scheduled to be implemented in about 10 financial institutions in the first half of 2007.
