Information Enabled Banking - Information Management Survey (South based private sector banks)

  1. 1. Information Enabled Banking Information Management Survey - South based private sector banks kpmg.com/in
  2. 2. Foreword KPMG India’s Information Enabled Banking Survey (IEB) was conducted amongst select 10 banks. IEB aims to provide an overview of Information Management landscape across Small and medium private sector banks. Over the last 15 years banks have made sizable investment in Information Technology which brought a paradigm shift in the banking industry and information availability. Sustained focus on IT became a trend by itself raising apprehensions on it’s business impact. A focus shift from Information Technology to Information Management has become imperative for Banks to meet their business priorities and market demand. With the advent of technology in banking, huge volume of data is produced and stored digitally. Traditional branch/location specific banking is replaced by technology enabled anywhere/virtual banking. This transformation has also resulted in increased information availability that necessitates banks to implement Intelligent Decision Support System. The IEB survey identifies key areas in banks where Information Management plays a critical role, not just in day to day operations but also at a strategic level. Crucial Information at the right time at the right cost would enable banks to drive up their top line growth. Our survey identifies areas of Improvements in departments such as Planning & Development, MIS, Risk, Corporate Finance and Customer Care where IM can play a vital role in a banks turnaround. KPMG’s IEB survey encompasses all aspects of Information Management relevant to banks in detail and provides an expert opinion across Strategy, Data Quality, Data Standardization, Information Systems, Business Analytics, Data Security and People. © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

  4. 4. Information Management Information Management function helps banks to leverage investments in information systems and build a capability to use information as a key enabler. The ability of organizations to capture, manage, preserve, store and deliver the right information to the right people at the right time is one of the most success factors of Information Management. The journey of Information Management starts when the organization defines and aligns their business objective with Information Management Capabilities. As the IM capability develops within the organization, they start realizing benefits like lower cost on technology spend, better information for decision making, higher data security and lower resourcing spend. t Journey Information Managemen Business Objectives Data Availability Data Quality (Master data-Transaction data) Business objectives from IM defined Sufficient data is available in accessible systems Data validation and certification mechanisms in place Integrated Information Systems (Information Systems-Data warehouse) Extraction, Transform, Load (ETL) defined and technology in place for EDW Finalization of the IM Vision IM Capability optimized Refine IM vision to plan Implementation and value realization phases IM capabilities Analytics • IM process excellence • IM organization • Re-validate business objectives • Information enabled strategic initiatives © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

  6. 6. Strategic Management A bank’s Information Management vision is determined by its strategic business objectives. Leveraging information capabilities and enablers are key success factors for overall achievement of business. A well defined and documented IM vision statement aligned with strategic business objective shall provide a differential advantage to banks over their competitors. Building Blocks for IM Strategy Some key fundamentals of an IM strategy are Centralization, Self service delivery model, Automation, Rationalization and Harmonization, Standardization and Outsourcing & Performance Management. Each of these blocks will enable a Bank’s capability to leverage their IM capability and re align IM investments to their strategic focus. These components shall significantly influence profitability, reduced risks and improved ways of working. At an operational level these components would improve efficiency and reduce business complexity. These operational advantages can only be realized when key decisions on these components are taken with strategic focus.

  7. 7. Information Enabled Banking | Strategic Management IEB survey findings ‘‘ The board room agenda for bankers should include a review of their IM strategy and its relevance to overall strategy. This well defined strategy should be cascaded and driven from senior leaders to lower levels of the organization Have a Documented Roadmap for Information Management ‘‘ KPMG in India Analysis Although 100% of the respondents to the survey responded to having an Information Management Strategy 78% confirmed that this was aligned with the Corporate strategy of the Bank 56% of the respondents have confirmed outsourcing is a part of their Information Management Strategy 86% of the banks responded that their managers understood the criticality of Information Management IM Strategy Maturity MAP Self Assessment by Bankers 56 percent of the respondents consider their maturity of their IM strategy as medium, indicating a need for improvement. Key Take Away 1. There needs to be a better focus on better strategic alignment between IM and business objectives 2. A banker should adopt to a well defined IM strategy that will enable them to : • Realize business objectives faster • Make timely corrections in business strategy, processes and operations KPMG in India Analysis © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

  8. 8. Data Quality • Ad-hoc reporting • • Head office-imposed systems changes Sub optimal training /skills of data owners • Complex input processing systems • Unclear system logics • In-effective input validation mechanisms System/Process driven In Banking sector these six areas form the core of all information that is processed. Data Quality is the backbone for all these areas that ensure that accurate outputs are generated . Quality of information would result in quality decisions made through the accuracy of the reports presented. Key Challenges from the system perspective in Data Quality Organization Driven Data quality is one of the fundamentals for a bank in having robust IM capabilities. Ensuring quality of data is a common challenge faced by the banks considering multiple input sources, extensive digitization of existing  records and large data. Maintaining quality of data is critical for banks to leverage on IM capabilities. • Accounting standard changes • Changes in the regulatory environment • Changes in business activity • Multiple input languages • Corporate restructuring • Undefined Unit of Measurements • Reconciliation between systems • Duplicate Master data KPMG in India Analysis Data Quality touch points in Bank’s Ecosystem Analytics Master data rationalization Centralized Master Data governance Mechanisms DQ compliance audits Data cleansing and Migration projects Linking DQ to performance Management DQ score cards Document Management System Compliance Reporting System Input Validation Mechanism Master Data Management Management Information System Characteristics of Leading practices KPMG in India Analysis Data Quality KPMG in India Analysis © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

  9. 9. Information Enabled Banking | Data Quality IEB survey findings Only 33% of the respondents use automation in their monthly report Documented Standards for Data Ownership and timeliness generation process and 44% have minimal manual intervention, so as to reduce Data Quality issues. Banks tend to collect information across multiple locations and multiple formats, thus potentially creating non standardized data. 67% of the respondents claimed to have clean and standardized data across systems. KPMG in India Analysis Top 5 Data Integrity Checks and Controls used by Banks Financial Audit 1 Internal Audit 1 Compliance Audit 3 Automated Reconciliation System 3 Cash Clearing 5 IM Data Quality Maturity Map Self Assessment by Bankers Majority of the Banks perceive their Data Quality maturity to be average. Key Take Away Banks should measure Data Quality in form of a scorecard and linking performance management to these scorecards, thus increasing Data accountability in the banks.

  10. 10. Standardization Standardized IM processes would mean that banks have well defined and documented standards in place for managing data sources, information processing and delivery. Standardization across business eliminates data duplication, data redundancy and cost associated with resolving these issues. Information Management activities that can be standardized Standardization Report Production Report Delivery Master Data Management Data Management Standardization in Information Management – Quantifying what you save Full time equivalent: Knowledge Management: With automation in place through standardization, an employee’s involvement on routine activities is reduced thereby giving employees bandwidth to participate in more productive activities. The benefit of knowledge management could be classified as both qualitative and quantitative. Banks gather a lot of data but deriving meaningful insights from this large data will be made possible by continues refinement and implementing standardized structure to deal with them. Standardization helps in turning data to information and thereby empowering management with clarity for decision making. Cost reduction: A major benefit by standardization is that banks are able to save on operation cost. Standardization of processes by elimination of duplication of efforts and identification of potential synergies help banks reduce cost. Turn around time: Standardization results in optimized TAT on operations thus resulting in faster and more efficient ways of working in the banking system. Standardization would result in optimal TAT without compromising on quality. © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

  11. 11. Information Enabled Banking | Standardization IEB survey findings All surveyed Banks have standardized reporting formats at the local branch, region, zone and at the corporate level Scope for standardization in IM This would include analysis of current reporting requirements. Post this analysis, banks need to identify sources of the data that feeds into these reports. Harmonized reporting landscape offer good standardization opportunities and better data management process. These initiatives could be very effective levers for driving IM efficiency with in Banks. Rationalization of reports and process After gathering of the reporting requirements, banks would need to rationalize redundant reports from their IM landscape. Elimination of duplication of reporting processes and redundant fields in reports could also provide a banks better insights from the reports generated. An exercise of Benchmarking against the best practices in the industry would help a bank understand its current standing and initiate a gap analysis to achieve its objectives. Templates and Automation Banks face challenges in standardizing the report generation methodology despite having a standardized reporting form and clearly defined output. Harmonization of reports and data management processes With the strategic, tactical and operational objectives for reporting set, banks can institutionalize templates and dashboards to automate and optimize report production process. Banks can leverage automation of processes to obtain real time information feed on their key performance indicators. Banks use different technologies and databases to capture and store information. One of the key problems they face is that there may be multiple versions of truth available. IM Standardization Maturity Map Self Assessment by Bankers Only 11 percent of the respondents perceive that they have advanced Standardization maturity, indicating there is scope for improvements. Key Take Away Standardization is needed at Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) process which would result in process efficiency, reduced manual intervention and reduced costs.

  12. 12. Information Systems Information systems generate, store and deliver data to the users. There are multiple systems that banks use to capture and store data. Thus there are chances for data duplication, data redundancy and disparate data across multiple systems. Thus it becomes imperative to have these Information systems talk to each other and ensure that there is smooth flow of information across systems. Integrated information system shall deliver Optimization of processing time Minimal Errors Optimizing Automation opportunities Value realization from IS investments Continuous upgrade and innovation on IS applications User Adoption Advanced IS apps key enabler of growth KPMG in India Analysis With advancement in technology, every bank is seeking to leverage on the capability of information systems to generate, store and deliver data to internal as well as external users. Information collected by a bank may be varied as there could be multiple entry points for data. Data entered at a retail branch, an ATM machine, a rural branch or at an overseas location need to be seamlessly woven to streamline data gathering process for the bank. © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.

  14. 14. Business Analytics Business Analytics for bankers would mean the capability to mine from their huge historical data, combine unstructured data elements from external sources and use predictive modeling to provide business insight. Business Analytics help banks identify areas of competitive advantage and risks. Leading banks use analytics to track behavior of customers by identifying spending patterns to leverage on cross selling opportunities. Evolution of analytics in banking space would be driven by following enablers • Banks ability to predict market dynamics and their potential impact on growth. • Optimizing existing customer base through up selling cross selling • Wallet share maximization • Risk management – Advanced approach necessitate analytics capability • Customized product offerings by peer groups and international banking players KPMG in India Analysis KPMG in India Analysis The historical records can serve as both lag and lead indicators to banks. Watching the historical trend, banks can predict market dynamics trends and patterns. This would not merely be for their customer base but also more broader macro economic trends could be estimated. The ability to predict and take proactive measures in line with the predicted trend will have a positive impact on the banks growth. With more regulators across the world especially in the financial services sector, placing a greater emphasis on risk management, banks need to review their ability to manage risk. Business analytics caters to satisfy this aspect of a bank’s need as well. The Basel II norms requisite defined capital adequacy and provisioning norms for each category of assets. To ensure and enable these controls and provisions are in place, it necessitates an advanced approach to analytics capability. © 2013 KPMG, an Indian Registered Partnership and a member firm of the KPMG network of independent member firms affiliated with KPMG International Cooperative (“KPMG International”), a Swiss entity.
