Application Compliance Manager - Calero-MDSL

For many financial firms, the management of market data application compliance is a time consuming, ad hoc, manual process which requires a lot of work, particularly to match application usage to the data license inventory. Application Compliance Manager (ACM) is a module in the Calero-MDSL product suite which integrates with Market Data Manager (MDM) to bring efficiency to the issuance, completion and management of market data compliance surveys. The purpose of these is to identify non-compliant market data licensing situations such as Non-Display and Derived Data misuse. Calero-MDSL have a standard set of customizable questionnaires which can be emailed out, in bulk if necessary, to nominated application owners. These questionnaires can be fully configured by the admin user through a drag and drop functionality, allowing necessary changes to be completed quickly. The owners simply follow email links to the surveys that feature questions driven by the firm’s inventory data (for example, vendor names, services, users, install locations, business lines etc.). Application owners can attach supporting files and can pass the questionnaires onto other stakeholders if needed. Once completed, submission of the questionnaire passes it to a designated Administrator for review. The usage can then be viewed with the license information in MDM. Reissuing of the questionnaires can be scheduled for annual reviews to ensure future compliance. ACM features customizable reporting models and web dashboards allowing firms to create reports to assist with compliance management and to prepare for vendor audits. Reporting on the responses allows firms to identify risks and visualise the relationships between applications and data lineage.
