Cappitech Data Visualisation

Data visualisation for transaction reporting

“A picture is worth a thousand words”.  This is as true for data as it is for art.

With the advent of big data, there is a tremendous need to manage, interpret and communicate it effectively – because even the best data is meaningless without being able to understand it and then apply it to your business. Data visualisation transforms bland data into useful visuals that tell a story and, if done right, can be used with little effort to make data-driven decisions. And while these tools have traditionally been used only by front office, revenue-generating teams where the value is immediate and obvious, there are plenty of reasons why it can and should be adapted for internal, back office systems and users.

The maturing transaction reporting industry 

The regulatory reporting industry, although booming, is in many respects still in its infancy stage with massive variations in offering from very basic transaction reporting to those that are harnessing technology and innovation to enable users to derive value from their transaction data and improve their reporting quality. Automation and data visualisation are some of the best ways to accomplish this.

For regulatory reporting purposes, data visualisation can have immediate benefits, including:

  • Identifying ways to improve reporting quality and accuracy
  • Pinpointing root cause for pre-sorting issues
  • Measuring and enhancing compliance KPIs over time and benchmark those against your peer group

Founder & CEO I am the proud Founder and CEO of Cappitech, which I established in 2013, on the foundations of ITG Israel that developed advanced technology for the US listed broker ITG (now acquired by Virtu NASDAQ: VIRT). We have a great team that has been working together for more than a decade. I have been managing software development projects for over 20 years, across several regions and in different markets. Prior to Cappitech, I was a part of ITG for 13 years, with the last 7 as CEO of ITG Israel. Before that, I spent 4 years as the CTO of the company’s EU business in London. I am also a partner in the Angel investing fund, AfterDox. I graduated from Tel Aviv University in Electronic Eng. and MBA, both with honors. As Cappitech is much about technology, product and our clients, people are our main asset. I am a great believer in hiring and retaining top talent and have learned through years of management that teamwork is the way to prove math doesn’t always work and that 1 + 1 is sometimes greater than 2.
