By providing a central warehouse to store, access and report on portfolio information, the new solution is expected to improve business efficiency and data integrity at the firm.

“As we become a more data-centric organization, considering information as a strategic asset and critical enabler, the centralized data warehouse will be a fundamental building block, enabling current and future business initiatives,” said William Riemslag, head of IT delivery investments at Robeco. “The EDM Warehouse will also be critical in helping us meeting regulatory reporting requirements more quickly and efficiently.”
