Global investment management firm AB CarVal adopts Validio to ensure 100% trust in their data

Monday, May 20, 20244 min read
[Stockholm, 2024-04-22] AB CarVal has officially implemented Validio’s Data Trust Platform to enhance the data quality and discoverability of their data assets. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in the company's efforts to ensure the highest data quality possible for every decision backed by data.

“We are really excited about Validio. As we process data & bring it in with dbt [...] we want to be able to detect anomalies in the data that we've stored in Snowflake. Based on the metrics we care about, we create alerts in Validio, and if there's a spike or anomaly in the data set we know it right away.“
Albert Obeng, Director of Technology at AB CarVal

AB CarVal aimed to enhance its processes and tools to support scaling operations and grow its Assets Under Management. Their strategy focused on bolstering data trust by improving data quality and ensuring proactive communication in the event of data incidents. Additionally, they sought to strengthen data ownership by providing clear catalog and lineage oversight while empowering non-technical staff with the ability to self-serve and access data efficiently.

AB CarVal elevates data quality with Validio's AI-powered Data Trust Platform

Earlier this year, AB CarVal adopted Validio’s AI-powered Data Trust Platform, giving them complete oversight of their data, with a robust data trust workflow that enables stakeholders to collaborate and swiftly resolve data incidents.

“We have Validio looking across all our datasets. We put alerts on the metrics we care most about, and if there at some point is a spike in a metric, we will know about it.”  says Albert Obeng, Director of Technology at AB CarVal

Validio’s Data Trust Platform unifies data quality, observability, lineage, and catalog—giving AB CarVal one interface to achieve everything they need to establish full trust in their most business-critical data. With Validio’s all-in-one offering, AB CarVal’s teams can efficiently collaborate on catching and resolving data issues before they impact key business metrics. 

Albert continues: “We utilize Validio for data quality, lineage, and cataloging. It complements our data stack to give us the observability we need.” 

Prioritizing and optimizing data assets with Validio

On top of having guardrails to prevent issues from reaching the business, anyone in the organization can use Validio’s Data Catalog to easily discover the data they need, and use the Data Asset Insights to understand how it’s utilized. Highly utilized assets can be prioritized with advanced monitoring, while underutilized assets can be considered moving to cold storage for cost-saving purposes.

“It’s a privilege to work with the talented team at AB CarVal. I’m excited to drive business impact with them and see what they can achieve with Validio’s platform.”
- Patrik Liu Tran, CEO and Co-founder of Validio
