LUMIQ was founded by data technologist Shoaib Mohammad, who has developed cutting-edge AI/ML solutions and data stack products—E2E Observability, DataOps, ML Risk Governance, Self-service analytics—for the FSI sector.
Addressing the announcement, LUMIQ’s CEO Shoaib Mohammad spoke to AIM exclusively: “Key digital transformation initiatives get affected if the data isn’t reliable or business-ready. Data manageability is a big challenge for financial services and insurance enterprises. A weak data backbone can have a major impact in terms of data security, quality, auditability, and compliance. Profitability takes a big hit. We operate across the entire data value chain to plug existing gaps and make sure that enterprise data is business-ready—for analytics, reporting, operations, compliance audits, AI/ML operationalisation and more. I’m truly excited about the next leap that LUMIQ is making. We are building data products to enable global enterprises with best-in-class data engineering practices and data stacks built-for-scale. “
