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.
