   DAMA - UK Chapter

The drive for the future is to successfully focus on providing quality support to core members whilst guaranteeing sufficient financial income to ensure sustained activity.

The four areas which DAMA UK recommends addressing over the next two years are:

Academic - to survey UK organisations to understand their Data Management skill set needs and then induce academic institutions to supply them.

Data Quality (DQ) - to benchmark data quality standards in the UK and encourage development of business awareness of the importance of DQ and help develop DG metrics.

Government regulations versus data - to increase awareness of the legal implications of data management, assist organisations in reducing their legal liabilities and support ETA (and others) lobby for "data clever" legislation.

Data Standards - survey requirements then work with other organisations (eg BCS) to develop effective data standards.

   EDM Council

About the EDM Council
The EDM Council is a neutral business forum founded by the financial industry to elevate the practice of data management as a business and operational priority. The prime directive is to ensure that all consumers (business and regulatory)  have trust and confidence that data is precisely what is expected without the need for manual recalculation or multiple data transformations. There are four programs of the Council:

  • Data Content Standards (FIBO): the standards-based infrastructure needed for operational management (identification, semantic language of the contract, classification).  We own the industry ontology for financial instruments and entity relationships and make it available as an open source standard 
  •  Data Management Best Practices (DCAM): the science and discipline of data management from a practical perspective (data management maturity, data quality, benchmarking).  
  • Data Implications of Regulation: translating the legislative objectives of transparency, financial stability, compressed clearing and cross-asset market surveillance into regulatory objectives and practical reporting requirements.  
  • Business Network: global meeting ground, CDO Forum and mechanism for sustainable business relationships

There are 135 corporate members of the Council (http://www.edmcouncil.org/councilmembers). We are governed by a board of 24 (http://www.edmcouncil.org/board). For more information visit www.edmcouncil.org.
