Talking Reference Data with Andrew Delaney: The Morning After the Night Before

Even if I say so myself, our Data Management Summit in London on Tuesday was a knockout event. It felt just right: all the right people were there, meeting with the right contacts. It had an intimate feel, even though it was heaving. And everyone learned a lot from the compelling presentations and discussions.

We’ll be offering session-by-session coverage over the coming days, but I thought I’d just get my 50 cents’ worth in before we do, with some personal highlights from the day.

Like Wipro keynoter Paolo Mittiga’s excellent flow diagram that started with the security at the top and ran through the trading workflow all the way to the client entity, and then was flipped on its back 180 degrees to illustrate the emerging entity-centric world view. And for his acronym for DATA: Desired Asset Thrown Away.

Like emerging tech scene-setter presenter Colin Gibson’s zippy but poignant talk on the need for analysis rather than archaeology when designing data management projects.

Like Bloomberg pre-lunch keynoter Pete Warms’ blow-by-blow account of the upcoming roll-out of the global legal entity identifier (LEI).

Like Barclays’ afternoon keynoter Chris Bannocks’ warning of the death of the domain expert – or else its relocation to India.

These presentations were clever and relevant and resonated with an appreciative, attentive audience. They were complemented by some real panel discussions that in some cases descended into an audience-driven free-for-all – in a good way, of course.

So yes, you guessed it, we’re being asked if we’ll do more of them. And despite my grumpiness in recent weeks – lot’s of muttering about ‘never again’ (although a broken ankle and hand surgery didn’t help) – I think there may be some news on this front very, very soon.

Thanks to everyone for your support. It means a lot to us.
