Corporate Regulatory Reporting: Improving Data Quality - 1:45 PM

Thousands of public companies have been reporting their financial data in structured data format since 2009. More and more data providers rely on XBRL data as an efficient, cost-effective means to extract data from public company filings. The quality of structured data has been improving due to actions taken by regulators and by industry. This session will explore these initiatives, such as the use of inline XBRL and the XBRL US Data Quality initiative and their impact on the use of structured data for public company financials.

Moderated by Paul Penler, Executive Director, EY

Walter Hamscher, IT Manager, Office of Structured Disclosure, Division of Economics and Risk Analysis, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

Mike Starr, Chair, XBRL US Data Quality Committee; Vice President, Governmental and Regulatory Affairs, Workiva

Analysis with Smart Data - 2:30 PM

Standardized data is computer-readable and less expensive to manage, allowing analysts and developers to improve the way they work and perform analysis that is difficult, if not impossible, using traditional datasets. During this session, we’ll examine how XBRL data lets analysts find information not available in traditional databases. You’ll also learn what a fundamental index is, how it differs from traditional price-driven indices and how structured (XBRL) data can streamline the building of fundamental indexes. Experts on this panel will give a technical explanation and demonstration.

Alex Rapp, co-Founder, Calcbench
