Managed Reference Data Services – Are Utility Models the Way Forward?

Join our panel of leading experts at next week’s A-Team Group Data Management Summit on March 6 in London, who will offer insight and fresh perspective as to how the groundwork is being laid and where it could deliver real business benefit.
