9:00 am - 9:30 am FIMA Fireside Chat: Organizational Evolution, Scale and Efficiency to Reduce Cost and Grow the Business

Alex Golbin, Global Head of Data Services,BlackRock Michael Manbeck, Vice President, Enterprise Data Management,Fidelity Investments
For several years data organizations have been focused on defensive activities, meeting complex rules to satisfy regulators. As the demand for data increases, data organizations are being tasked with moving toward self-service to enable decision making and deliver value. How are data leaders re-engineering their organizations to keep up with this dual focus? What changes are needed to shift away from pleasing risk and regulators to servicing the C-Suite? What does scalability and efficiency look like, particularly where organizations are running lean? Two Heads of Data Management will weigh in on how they are updating their data organizations, including:

  • The drivers around different types of data, including transactional and client data and controls needed
  • How data is being provisioned to support and grow the business
  • Organizational changes necessary to enable self-service
