KEYNOTE: What's the "D" in CDO?
Where does data governance go from here?
Conrad Chuang, Director Solutions Strategy, Orchestra Networks

Over the past several years financial services firms have established new data governance programs and recruited Chief Data Officers (CDO) to lead them. These teams have been hard at work documenting and assessing their respective organization’s existing data landscape, reporting on the quality of data within their organization, and devising new strategies and policies for governance and control. As many CDO’s have observed, it seems as if the “D” has thus far been more about “documentation” than “data”. But now with the finish line on documentation for key initiatives in sight, what’s next for CDOs in the data governance landscape?

In this keynote, Mr. Chuang provides case studies illustrating an expanded scope for data governance, including how organizations are building on their foundational achievements in defining and cataloging business metadata to pursue larger objectives in areas such as establishing linkage with reference and master data management, business rules management, big data catalogs, data quality and entitlements.

A Proven Data Controls Framework for Regulatory Compliance in Financial Services
Dan Meers, President, K2 Solutions
Carl Gerber, Executive, K2 Solutions

Data governance programs must provide a way to define, develop, deploy and continuously monitor data controls over regulatory data.  Risk data is now highly regulated and the controls required to comply with this regulation are also applicable in critical anti-money laundering, information privacy and information security environments.

Regulatory reporting requirements from Basel including value at risk models for capital adequacy, OCC, FDIC and FNRA requirements for loan loss reserve calculations, and enterprise risk management reporting for bank executives and regulators all rely on controlled data.  We will share specific controls in a proven, industry award winning controls framework.

The Data Conundrum: Creating Value and Satisfying Regulatory Demands at the Same Time
Simon Hankinson, Global Financial Services Market Lead, Collibra

We all know that our data is an incredibly valuable asset. But without good processes for governing and taking care of that data, we cannot unlock that value. Organizations need an approach that creates transparent, trustworthy, high quality data, and at the same time satisfies the growing regulatory requirements for data governance and management. Learn how leading organizations bring these two goals together, with a principled approach to taking care of their data. We will discuss how data governance processes created for BCBS 239, CCAR and other regulatory reporting increase the value and trustworthiness of data.

Data Governance: What's Important to the C-Suite?
Jeff Shortis, Founder and CEO, Data3Sixty

While data can be complex, how data is leveraged is a significant contributing factor to gaining a competitive advantage. Due to the nuanced details surrounding data, it can be difficult to have the ‘so what?’ conversations with the C-Level, ensuring that the message is delivered both in the right language and at the right level to be understood and actionable.

Drawing from his firsthand experience and expertise as the former Chief Data Officer (CDO) for a Global Asset Management organization, Jeff Shortis, CEO of Data3Sixty, will discuss Data3Sixty’s approach to connecting data governance initiatives to the achievement of business capabilities which are well understood by the C-Level.  Connecting the dots on how data governance can help move the meter on important strategic factors will ensure ongoing support and buy-in across your organization.
The session will highlight the implementation of a collaborative governance platform as a foundation for enterprise data governance, covering:

  • Mitigate Risk by Providing the Appropriate Visibility and Controls Over Data
  • Quickly identify, Resolve and Limit the Impact of Data Quality issues
  • Extract Additional Value from Existing Data Assets
  • Speed Time-to-Market and Reduce Cost
  • Visualizing the Data Governance Achievements to the C-Suite

Data Lineage from Cobol, DB2 and JCL
Siddhartha Banerjee, VP of Worldwide Product Sales, Compact Solutions

We will talk about our experience in implementing a major global bank's data governance program focusing on meeting data lineage and ancestry requirements. The projects involved proving dta lineage from Mainframe to Bid Data Cloudera.

What attendees will learn:

  • The approach used to deploy the Data Governance program focused on satisfying regulatory reporting needs based on deep understanding of system interfaces, to truly understand how does data flows and how it has been derived from the sources. We will demo end-to-end lineage from Reporting, ETL and Hadoop distribution and Source Mainframe systems.
  • Exposure to a Data Governance program in a complex environment where standardized business terms, data quality rules/policies and data lineage align to satisfy the regulatory requirements.

Changing Finance Behaviors to Achieve Policy Adherence
Carrie Fawcett, Finance Data Governance, TIAA
This case study reviews TIAA’s approach to developing and establishing best practices within their Finance and Actuarial functions to implement Data Governance Policy and Standards.

This presentation will cover:

  • Challenges to policy/standard implementation
  • Key success factors – what outcome do you really want?
  • Components of a solid foundation within your policy to build upon

Case Study on Data Governance in the Big Data Lake
Peter Carr, Principal, CapTech Consulting
Kristi Cunningham, VP Enterprise Data Management, Capital One
Learn how Capital One developed a method for ingesting data in their Big Data Lake and still provided important data governance in the process.

Learn about Capital One supported data stewards to implement data governance without stopping the ingestion of data into a Big Data environment. With the huge volumes of structured and unstructured data flowing into our Data Lake, implementing controls required for regulatory reporting while still providing data for analysis and exploration was a challenge. One of the key differentials that we have implemented is providing data context at the right stage of the process. Rather than applying complete context as data is first loaded into the lake, applying basic context early and detailed business context later (only when it is needed) can most effectively serve the needs of data consumers in a Big Data environment.

Blockchain for Recordkeeping
Roberta Kowalishin, Director, PwC

How are blockchain technologies starting to play a role in recordkeeping and enterprise content - to strengthen Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance functions that protect trade secrets, regulated records and privacy?    One specific use case - long-term preservation of electronic records is a serious challenge without a widely accepted solution.  20% of records require retention of 10 years or more and keeping records for 25 years and beyond is common in insurance, utilities, finance and medicine/ pharmaceuticals.  A signature embedded in a blockchain provides a compelling solution to this challenge.   This presentation will discuss the long term records preservation use case and several other examples of blockchain for records implementations across enterprise, government records and relief fund processes.  A framework for organizing recordkeeping technology approaches and risks and contrasting this approach with other uses of blockchain (smart contracts and cryptocurrencies) will be proposed.

Critical Data Elements: the Whole Story  
Ian Rowlands, VP of Product Marketing, ASG

The continued growth of the data estate makes identification of critical data elements a key challenge. Knowing which elements are CDEs is a vital part of understanding how to prioritize data management efforts and how to allocate resources.

What makes a data element a CDE? There's more than one way of looking at the question, and this session will explore the approaches. Next we'll look at how to understand where CDEs come from and what may happen as they flow through systems. Using CDEs successfully depends on understanding related quality and validity issues, and being able to react quickly to potential problems can impact business agility and profitability and contribute to risk mitigation.

This session will cover:

  • Ways to identify CDEs
  • Understanding the "where and how" of CDE lineage
  • The CDE "Big Picture" - business understanding, quality, valid values and issue management
  • Business / Technology CDE collaboration
