Talking Reference Data with Andrew Delaney: That Was the Week that Was

I’m sure I’ve used that headline before but it seems apt: two conferences in one week, plus a data management training session in conjunction with our friends at EDM Works and JWG. Yes, last week was quite a week.

For those of you that attended, I’m sure you’ll agree that Thursday’s Data Management Summit was the best yet. We’ve been running these for three years now and I feel they’ve really found their calling, as it were.

Tuesday’s Intelligent Trading Summit was our first venture into this area of the business – building on our well established Low Latency Summits – and we’re very happy with the progress made. We expect to build on this in New York on May 13, when the two conferences will run concurrently, reflecting the convergence of interests between pre- and post-trade data environments. It’s a whole new world.

DMS London last week was an – erm – eventful event. There were many highlights, from Rupert Brown’s excellent kickoff address, through to the whole utilities discussion and Smartstream’s Adam Cottingham’s excellent summary of the drivers and benefits, through to great workshops from the guys at Diaku and from IBM and Goldensource. We said it would be action-packed and it was.

So what’s next, aside from New York?

We’re in the process of mapping out our events schedule for the remainder of the year, including our programme of webinars – which continues next week with an update on the LEI, what else? – and the possibility of some mini-summits focusing on specific functional areas and geographies. It promises to be a busy year.

To keep our lovely DMS audience apprised of our plans, we are establishing a new LinkedIn group; if you came to DMS London last week, you’ll get an invite shortly. We’ll also be extending this to our webinars and to past event alums.

Through this group, we will host discussions around possible future topics, post links to materials from previous events, and generally engage with our burgeoning DMS community so we can serve you better going forward.

We hope you get involved.
