Martijn Groot's work in describing the world of financial content, data, and information is a comprehensive overview that spans multiple levels of readership.

For novices to financial technology, this book is the key manual in order to understand any financial technology application for the capital markets industry. By delving into various financial products, the content associated with it, and various industry players, the beginning reader gets a compass to navigate the wide world of financial data and financial products.

For more advanced readers and practitioners of financial technology and data, this book is a spot on read to make sense of the wide varieties and uses of this data. It really helps to put into perspective the kind of applications that are out there, and how this data is / can be used.

Also, what is new and intriguing to follow, is this concept taken from manufacturing - such as the supply-chain. Applying this concept and related metrics and ideas from other industries to the capital markets industry has been needed for a long time - especially in this day of rogue traders, operational breaks, and the resulting potential financial failures.

Definitely a must read at any level for industry experts and people who want to get into this space.

This "Atlas" provides a very elaborate overview to find your way in the jungle of market data and financial products.

By focussing on the instrument and transaction lifecycles it adds a time-dimension that brings data to life. It clearly describes the different needs with respect to data content, quality and automation in the different stages of these enlacing lifecycles.

This book will absolutely become a standard in financial information management, as it is the first time such a colourful and complete map is provided of the market data world.

I originally took this book out of the library and read it. It discusses financial instruments and tye supply chain amd explains in detail the financial life cycle amd transactions. I bought the book to have on hand from Amazon. I no longer work in that field but found this to be an excellent resource to anyone wanting to understand financial instruments and how tye trade cycle works. As a newbie I found it very helpful and this is not just beginner material. The author explains advanced concepts in a very reader friendly manner. I recommend this book highly.

This book is totally not accurate, but precise in the content it presents. it has barely any relevant and practical information on financial data and how it's accurately managed, stored and transformed on a tactical level. In other words it's useless.
