Talking Reference Data with Andrew Delaney: No Rest for the Wicked

Subscribe to our newsletter

I don’t know about you but the misconception that I could ease back into the swing of things post-holidays was rapidly blown away last week and continues to be blown away in a whirlwind of activity. At the risk of coming across as naively optimistic, members of our community across the board seem to be so busy as to be verging on frantic: green shoots at last?

High on our agenda here at Reference Data Review are preparations for our Data Management Summits in London on March 6 and in New York on May 13. As many of you know, I am reaching out to my industry contacts to get their assessment of what is driving our industry in 2014 and how the respective stakeholders are responding.

It’s early days, but all indications suggest our DMS events will continue in the same vein of high quality we enjoyed in 2013. Certainly, if our goal in establishing these events was to create an environment where the enterprise data community can meet, mingle, learn and compare notes, then I think we have succeeded. Expect more of the same, just a bit different.

I don’t want to get into too much detail here, because we still have a ways to go to finalising the agendas, and of course ‘loose lips sink ships’, as Thomson Financial’s Andy Mills used to say back in the day. But discussions so far with movers and shakers we respect indicate a compelling topic list. Here’s a snapshot of what we’re thinking in terms of headline subjects for panel sessions, workshops and keynotes:

  • Enterprise Architecture
  • EMIR, Entity Data and the LEI
  • Utility-Based Reference Data Management
  • The CDO and Managing Data Management
  • Data Management Team Performance Measurement
  • Enterprise Analytics
  • Enterprise Risk Management
  • FATCA
  • Benchmark/Contributed Data Management
  • Chat & Social Media Compliance & Control

As ever, if any of these topics pique your interest, or you would like to find out more about getting involved either as a speaker or sponsor (or both), get in touch soonest. We’ll be reaching out over the coming weeks, and updating everyone as things progress.

Here’s to a couple of great data management days!
