XBRL data has promised ease of use, greater accuracy and timeliness, and the ability to quickly and easily consume and analyze large volumes of company-specific data. This group of panelists from the data aggregator community will discuss how their organizations are planning for the use of XBRL and are actively consuming XBRL data today for their buy- and sell-side clients. Discussion will cover challenges and benefits of XBRL from a database standpoint, e.g., what needs to be done to prep the data, and how it can be beneficial from an analytical standpoint.
