It’s a new world, and in this new world, data is more crucial than ever. Getting the best data possible, and then being able to interpret that data to improve performance, will be a competitive edge that no company in the mortgage finance space can do without in the current environment of volume contraction.

Some of the companies we profile in this section would be defined as data and analytics companies — others are companies leveraging data and analytics to be the very best in their particular part of the mortgage finance world. All are committed to using data to eke out every efficiency, every advantage they can for themselves and their clients.

It’s a new world, but these companies are demonstrating how you can successfully navigate it.
