London, United Kingdom, May 01, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- A-Team Group’s prominent Data Management Summit took a new stage this year, converting to a virtual platform to accommodate the industry during the COVID-19 shutdown. The three day event focused on how to align data and business strategy to drive revenue optimisation and operational efficiency.
Experts from top financial institutions, solution providers and consultancies lead discussions on how to strike a balance between data defence and data offence to achieve trust and value and how to create a new framework for data quality and data governance that is business focused. Consideration was given to the problem of data silos and data volumes and the need for a common language in the form of business-aligned data models. Further analysis included the role of AI, ML and NLP to increase automation and efficiency and how to turn data lineage from a regulatory response into a business advantage. Special attention was given to managing risk, regulation and reporting, particularly during these unique circumstances, as well as how new technologies, such as the cloud, can create new capabilities for the business. The three day event rounded out with discussions on embedding data ethics into data strategies and how DataOps can align data analytics, people, process and technology with the enterprise.
Distinguished speakers included AXA’s former Head of Data Services Edosa Odaro, HSBC’s GBM EMEA Chief Data Officer David Thomas, NatWest Markets’ Head of Data Sarah Walker, the Bank of England’s Chief Data Officer Oliver Burrows, HBSC’s Chief Data Officer, Compliance, Lorraine Waters, Lloyd’s Banking Group’s Head of Risk Angela Johnson De Wet, and many more.
