The Challenge
UBS needed to comply with regulations for risk data aggregation and internal risk reporting in the wake of the 2007 global financial crisis. They needed to provide transparency into data flows and have detailed data lineage.
The Customer


About The Customer
UBS is a multinational investment bank and financial services company based in Switzerland. They operate in five main business areas and have offices in more than 50 countries. UBS needed a solution to comply with regulations and improve risk management.
The Solution
UBS built a data lineage and data governance tool called Group Data Dictionary (GDD) using Neo4j, a graph database. Neo4j offered advantages over a relational database, including easier traversal of connected data using Cypher query language. UBS synchronized Neo4j with their legacy Oracle system for smooth integration.
Quantitative Benefit
  • The solution provided real-time response time and agility, allowing UBS to resolve complex dependencies and generate data lineage easily. It helps UBS understand the flow of data through the organization and how changes and errors can impact the entire system.
