Asprey to Focus on Critical Financial Data Quality Risk and Compliance Considerations During Roundtable and Workshop at Financial Information Management Association Conference

BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Trillium Software®, a business of Harte-Hanks®, Inc. (NYSE: HHS), and leading provider of Total Data Quality solutions, announced today that Trillium Software executive Jon Asprey has been invited to share his expertise and knowledge about financial data quality, risk and compliance considerations during a panel and workshop at the annual Financial Information Management Association (FIMA) Conference 2011, March 21 - 23 at Bridgewaters in New York City.

"Banking and investment firms are under unprecedented pressure to demonstrate that the data used to model credit risk and make capital reserve calculations is valid, accurate and verifiable in order to comply with new, stringent government policies and regulations," said Mr. Asprey, director, strategic consulting at Trillium Software. "By employing a transparent and repeatable approach to data management across the enterprise, financial institutions will be able obtain a significantly more accurate picture of their true risk exposure."

Mr. Asprey will be speaking at the following sessions:

  • Monday, March 21 - 11:10 a.m. EDT - Data Quality & Risk Workshop - Interactive round table workshops provide an informal opportunity to brainstorm about key data quality and risk compliance issues and ideas. Without a holistic method of ensuring data management, financial institutions will have trouble fulfilling the requirements of regulatory compliance, especially as the industry is now coping with tighter regulatory scrutiny. Each 25 minute session will be focused on a specific theme within data quality, risk and metrics such as managing data quality across the enterprise and establishing an integrated data framework for managing risk.
  • Tuesday, March 22 - 11:25 a.m. EDT - "Exploring the Current State of Data Management" panel discussion - The financial industry has been shaken by the credit and mortgage fallout. Behind the scenes, data management executives could have predicted this. So where do we go from here? Right now no one has great, clean data. But it is all about "staying the course." This panel takes a look at how data management priorities have shifted as a result of the heightened focus on risk including reducing risk and examining the evolving roles of data governance and stewardship.

Jon Asprey is director of strategic consulting at Trillium Software, where he has overseen the development of key solution deliverables for the financial services market. Jon has over 13 years of experience in information management and data analytics, working on behalf of both global consultancies and software vendors for many international Financial Services clients. Over the last five years, Jon has focused exclusively on data quality management and has provided advisory services to clients, defining data quality strategies, building business use-case justifications and planning for data management initiatives within Data Governance and Master Data Management projects.
