Nobody wants to own reference data; it often crosses lines of business, or is imposed upon the business by external sources such as regulatory agencies. It is so often seen as an unwanted stepchild and is usually left behind.

This talk describes common symptoms of lack of reference data management:

  • What to watch for, and the remedies for a cure.
  • Natural Entry Points: how to take advantage of events in the business.
  • What to do when reference data crosses Lines of Business
  • Dealing with Regulatory Bodies: Various ways to connect
  • Creating new ways of informal governance for reference data
