ACA Technology invites you to join us at the second meeting of the Data Management Working Group for the Alternative Investment Industry (DMWGAI) in New York on September 12, 2017. Two panels of industry experts will discus topics on Better Data before Big Data: A Blueprint for a Strong Culture of Data Management.

About the Event

Alternative investment data executives face growing demands from portfolio management teams, operations staff, regulators and outside investors wanting more transparency, more flexibility and faster speed -- all in the face of a push toward Big Data.

Please join the second meeting of the newly formed Data Management Working Group for the Alternative Investment Industry (DMWGAI) as we discuss a blueprint for effective data governance and best practices.

This second gathering of invitation-only industry professionals will feature two panels of industry experts. The first panel will examine how to develop a culture of data management within your firm and how data governance and best practices result in a better data foundation. The second panel of this morning event will discuss how data management professionals are addressing challenges associated with their ability to access, slice, dice, manage and interpret Big Data. This second panel will also explore evolving best practices to handle regulatory and compliance issues in managing and using Big Data.

This is an invitation-only, industry only (no media) event and space is limited. You must register prior to the event to attend. There is no cost to attend.
