A-Team Group Hosts Outstanding Data Management Summit

Over 300 delegates join the event to discuss everything from digitalisation to diversity.

London, United Kingdom, September 29, 2018 --( A-Team Group’s Data Management Summit, which took place in New York City on September 20, 2018, hit an all-time high with a packed auditorium, buzzing exhibition hall, great line-up of speakers, market leading sponsors and interactive discussion throughout the day on how to deliver the next level of data management and business success.

A keynote presentation by Suvrat Bansal, head of innovation, chief data officer and managing director at UBS Asset Management, set the scene for the day with an inspirational presentation on the firm’s journey towards effective and added value digital transformation.

A second keynote, presented by Brennan Carly, global head of enterprise at Thomson Reuters, argued the case for putting data in the cloud in terms of scale, agility, reduced costs and greater data integrity. A final keynote from Peter Moss, CEO of the SmartStream RDU, reviewed today’s data management challenges and emphasised the need for a strong master data foundation that can be delivered by a move from sometimes dated enterprise data management systems to the next chapter of data management, the utility model.

The Summit also included a number of lively panel sessions led by industry leaders and covering everything from adding value using metrics and analytics to the data management response to forthcoming regulation, data lineage, innovative technologies, the utopia of data standardisation, alternative data and diversity in data.

With the Summit keynotes and panel discussions complete, and more delegate questions asked than could be answered during the conference, conversations continued during an animated drinks reception hosted by A-Team Group and joined by many of the summit participants.

Sarah Underwood, the Summit chair and an editor at A-Team Group, said: “This year’s Data Management Summit in New York City was a resounding success, with hundreds of delegates joining the event to learn from leading industry speakers, take part in interactive panel discussions and talk to technology vendors about innovative data management solutions.”
