BILLERICA, MA--(Marketwire - Mar 19, 2012) - 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 regulations during a panel discussion and workshop at the annual Financial Information Management Association (FIMA) Conference 2012, March 19 - 21 at Bridgewaters in New York City.

"Data management, and the quality of financial and client data, is a critical consideration of all banking and investment firms in light of increasing pressure to comply with regulatory initiatives such as Basel II and III, FATCA, Dodd-Frank, and Legal Entity Identification," said Mr. Asprey, vice president, strategic consulting at Trillium Software. "By employing a transparent, repeatable and easily-deployable approach to data management across the enterprise, financial institutions will be able to obtain a significantly more accurate picture of their risk exposure within these critical regulatory regimes."

Mr. Asprey will be speaking at the following sessions:

Monday, March 19 - 10:30 a.m. EDT - Data Quality & Risk Workshop: "Building A Practical Data Quality Certification Process For Risk And Compliance Needs" -- 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 20 - 10:00 a.m. EDT - "Achievable Enterprise Data Management Tactics to Implement Today" panel discussion -- A panel discussion including senior banking executives and software/solution providers that offer data management products. Enterprise Data Management poses so many wonderful possibilities for your team; however, the hurdles in front of you may loom large. This panel will break down some tactical management solutions to help your EDM goals along. Key points include:

  • Discussing how EDM is developing at several leading banking institutions,
  • A focus on how process improvements can benefit your EDM goals,
  • Leveraging your existing enterprise infrastructure to streamline reference data operations,
  • Examining how to create uniform workflows that go across business lines,
  • Looking closely at gaps in technology, risk and organizational buy in.
