BOSTON -- September 24, 2013

Sapient Global Markets, a division of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), today announced
the “Sapient Global Markets Sentiment-Based Data Management Maturity
Assessment” (DMMA). Unlike evidence based data management assessments, the
Sapient Global Markets DMMA evaluates stakeholder perceptions of data
management maturity across the organization.

By taking the Sapient Global Markets DMMA, firms will be able to:

  *Benchmark and heat map the maturity of data management across the
  *Gain insights to help drive your data management strategy forward.
  *Use implied prioritizations from the assessment to better inform budgetary
    spending decisions.
  *Predict the effects of certain initiatives or scenarios on data maturity.

With data sitting at the heart of all activities across the capital and
commodity markets, market participants, regulators and intermediaries alike
need to gain a clearer, deeper understanding of their data management
practices across the enterprise. Understanding that every firm’s culture is
different; Sapient Global Markets offers variable levels of engagement, from
providing the self-assessment to full facilitation and assistance with results

“One of the biggest roadblocks to successful data management programs in
today’s environment is engagement from senior stakeholders across the
organization and the alignment of deliverables against priorities,” said Gavin
Kaimowitz, director, Sapient Global Markets. “Historically it has taken
companies far too long to understand their current state of data management
related programs. The Sapient Global Markets DMMA will help overcome some of
these roadblocks by providing an expedited framework from which to base
strategic data management decisions.”

Based on the Enterprise Data Management Council’s (EDM Council) recently
developed and industry recognized Data Management Maturity Model, the Sapient
Global Markets DMMA is designed to help benchmark the maturity of data
management initiatives across the enterprise. Results will help firms get a
better view of their data in order to make more informed decisions on
alignment of strategy, implementing governance mechanisms, managing
operational components, defining dependencies, aligning data with IT
capabilities, ensuring data quality and integrating data into business

“Enterprise data governance is a people and process-centric practice that
guides decision making in regard to creating and using business information,
holding data decision makers accountable for their decisions, and providing
consequences if decision makers, or their subordinates, fail to abide by
governance at an enterprise level,” wrote Mary Knox, research director,
Gartner and author of the report, Hype Cycle for Bank Operations Innovation,
2013. “While not itself a technology, it can be enabled by technologies such
as database management systems, data integration and data validation tools.”
