Tattoo Data Tracking service
The Tattoo service from Ropnoy enables organisations to tag and track the use of external data across their Domains
Efficient tracking, effective governance, non-intrusive implementation and the ability to report on real-world usage for any file type.
File based data
Typically, End of Day or Reference Data in the form of Excel XLS, CSV, XML and pdf which are consumed by end users or business applications.
Typically the same End of Day files, but data elements are extracted from the downloaded file via an import schema and imported into a Data Warehouse.
Vendor provided real-time data streaming into the Data Warehouse or similar via an API from the Market Data Platform. Once in the Warehouse tables, the origination of this data is lost.
For Compliance, understanding whether files saved to the network or data imported to a warehouse have been accessed by unauthorised personnel, or re-used in downstream applications is becoming a business imperative and proving this to the regulators, a priority.
Our services use data ‘watermarking’ and we apply this in an innovative way, enabling organisations to track the use of data in the three principle data consumption categories;
Identifies vendor data use in downstream applications
Identifies real users of data for internal recharge
Identifies actual data used as well as origination.
Transparency for Compliance
Rapid implementation and results
Provides qualified knowledge on which to base business decisions
No network or application reengineering
Faster and more accurate than manual methods
