Chair’s Opening Address: Andrew Delaney, Chief Content Officer, A-Team Group


OPENING KEYNOTE ADDRESS: Gary Goldberg, Chief Data Officer, Mizuho International 

Using data to bring the business together

As data professionals, governance and technology considerations often overtake our agenda.  But the CDO is in a unique position to offer more.  Gary's keynote presentation offers advice and real examples about how this can be achieved.

  • Business Value: How to use business outcomes to receive buy-in and move beyond data governance
  • Business Change: Why data is a key unifying force to break down internal silos
  • Business Improvement: How to use data as a driver of business process improvement
  • Business Strategy: Positioning the Data Office as a vital contributor to business strategy

CDO (USER) KEYNOTE PANEL: From risk to opportunity: Making data work for your organisation

Data management teams are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of change coming from regulation and technology disruption – but how can CDOs bring structure and support change to facilitate growth, create efficiencies and add value?

The Chief Data Officer (CDO) panel will set the tone for the day and share practical insight and approaches into 2018 data management and regulatory priorities, as well as progress around data innovation initiatives.  

  • Regulatory outlook: Which regulations are on your radar for 2018 and what impact do you expect these to have on data management processes and principles?  To what extent can RegTech help solve the regulatory burden?
  • How do you make the case for data innovation when data is still seen as a risk from a data quality perspective?  
  • Promoting Innovation: How do we get buy-in for data lab/science/innovation projects when all the budgets are spent on regulation?  What model should we use?
  • What is your definition of a “data driven culture” and do you see this changing in 2018?
  • How can the CDO office help bring about the cultural change necessary to help create a data driven culture?
  • ROI and progress: What metrics should you use to prove the value to the business?
  • Can we monetise data?

An informative event with a diverse group of presenters and topics each relevant to my role somehow. This gave me and my colleagues some ideas on how to development our data governance framework further and also emphasised the importance of stakeholder engagement which outlined difficulties we all experience. All in all, a very worthwhile event

The Data Management Summit provided an excellent opportunity to hear about different initiatives underway in the market, and the experiences of practitioners across a range of industries, both through presentations and individual networking conversations. I have taken away a number of key points that will enable me to make change recommendations in my company, substantiated by the experiences of others that were shared at the Summit.

I always make sure to attend the twice-yearly Data Management Summit as I find it brings together the right industry thought leaders, and always has forward thinking and thought provoking sessions.

The Data Management Summit is a great platform which brings together industry thought leaders from within and outside of the financial industry to present and discuss the upcoming challenges.
