Tech Mahindra, a leading provider of digital transformation, consulting and business reengineering services, has selected Alveo, a leader in market data integration and analytics solutions for financial services, as the technology underpinning an integrated Financial Data as a Service Proposition to the Financial Services Industry.
The FiDaaS Solution provides a cloud-based, Centralized Market Data Platform which offers a comprehensive solution for pricing and reference data management and covers end to end Financial Data Management requirements.

Financial Services firms need to handle increasing volumes, additional data sources and need to provide their business users and applications with quality checked and validated information for risk, valuation, operations, trade enablement, finance, and advanced analytics. In this regard, FiDaaS will improve operational efficiencies by streamlining the management and control and tracking of data to enhance governance and verification for regulatory reporting.
The Tech Mahindra “Powered by Alveo” partnership brings together two global specialists with the complementary capabilities needed to realize transformative outcomes with a vision and a commitment to co-innovate.
Vivek Agarwal, President – BFSI, HLS and Corporate Development, Tech Mahindra, said, “Value and reliability of instrument data that financial institutions have access to, has far reaching impact on their reputation and regulatory scrutiny. Inaccuracy and unavailability of this data increases risk and causes significant financial losses. A sophisticated data management platform is central to ensuring data quality, data lineage, data cost monitoring, automation and self-services for global enterprises. Our partnership with Alveo is a step in this direction. Through this collaboration, we aim to help financial services customers to achieve the objectives of better-quality data at right cost while also getting the best analytical features from the historical financial data repository. We are looking forward to work with Alveo and driving the financial services customers towards Data -as-a-Service model.”
As part of the NXT.NOW TM framework, Tech Mahindra aims to enhance human centric experiences for businesses. This means focusing on investing in emerging technologies and solutions that enable digital transformation to better meet the evolving needs of its customers through our DigitALL framework.
Mark Hepsworth, CEO, Alveo, said, “Our partnership with Tech Mahindra is another step forward in rolling out Data-as-a-Service offerings to the financial services industry. The speed of onboarding, flexibility in consumption and lower cost of change whilst providing users a clear set of controls, dashboards and configuration options have made Data-as-a-Service the model of choice when it comes to sourcing data management capabilities. We are delighted to welcome Tech Mahindra to the ‘Powered by Alveo’ program and look forward to working closely together.”
