Atkin Quits Outsell for Staff Director Role at Enterprise Data Management Council

Subscribe to our newsletter

Well, we called it (Reference Data Review, June 2005).

After just a few months with legal, scientific and B2B market research firm Outsell, Mike Atkin has moved on to become the staff director of the Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Council

The move was hardly unexpected; Atkin’s long experience with Financial Information Services Division (FISD) of the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) will be invaluable to the EDM Council, especially as it attempts to establish itself as a bona fide industry body that aims to help C-level executives at financial institutions achieve their enterprise data needs.

Set up by vendors IBM, SunGard Data Management Solutions and GoldenSource, the EDM council seeks to promote enterprise data management as a solution for today’s data management challenges.
After leaving FISD a year or so ago – his role was taken over by Tom Davin – and with backing from Strauss International, Atkin launched the Financial Data Coalition (Reference Data Review, February 2005), which aimed to take on some of the standards issues previously championed by FISD, particularly in the reference data space. A lack of industry support forced a rethink (Reference Data Review, May 2005), however, and Atkin sought refuge at Outsell before returning to more familiar ground with the EDM Council role.
