Aite Group Announces Data and Analytics Partnership with Alphacution Research Conservatory

Aite – Boston – Aite Group, a leading global financial research and advisory firm, is pleased to announce a partnership with Alphacution Research Conservatory, a new data and analytics firm focused on technical infrastructure intelligence.

“We have followed the work of Paul Rowady and Alphacution for a long time and believe strongly that what is being developed here is unique, valuable, timely, and relevant to our clients,” says Sang Lee, partner and co-founder of Aite Group. “Through this alliance between Aite Group and Alphacution, we intend to provide our clients with greater insights into how market participants are actively looking to leverage technology to stay ahead in an increasingly challenging competitive environment,” he says.

Alphacution has developed a standardized data-driven framework that can measure technological leverage (the return on technology) and, more importantly, benchmark firms in its modeling sample and calculate a firm’s “tech dividend” or “tech debt.” With this standardization framework, Aite Group, in conjunction with Alphacution, is co-publishing a report introducing a new way of examining IT spending behavior within the financial services industry.

“It does not matter what your firm spends on technology; what matters most is what your firm receives for its technology investment,” says Alphacution director of research Paul Rowady.

This report provides insight into how to measure tangible returns based on IT spending, setting the stage for future deeper analysis from the partnership between Aite Group and Alphacution. This report will be available to Aite Group and Alphacution clients beginning on October 11, 2016.
