Changes in Government and Business Reporting via DATA Act and SBR to be Featured at XBRL International Conference, June 9-11, Orlando, Florida

XBRL International, the global standards organization dedicated to improving business reporting, today announced that its upcoming conference: Better Data for Better Decisions, will feature the implications and opportunities presented by the Digital Accountability and Transparency (DATA) Act.

The DATA Act is a key part of US Government financial transparency measures and represents a significant change in the way that public sector expenditures will be monitored in an age of open data. Together with a range of other transparency initiatives, it opens up a huge new set of opportunities and challenges for government agencies and all of those in the private sector that deal with government.

“Federal agencies, businesses that serve federal agencies and recipients of federal funds will need to adapt to the new reporting requirements in the DATA Act. This conference will help them formulate their strategy and take advantage of the opportunities this new legislation presents. The US is at the cutting edge of this kind of ‘transparency through big data’ and the conference is a unique opportunity for professionals from other countries to understand this new initiative,” said John Turner, CEO, XBRL International, “We will also focus on the long term efforts underway in Europe and Australasia to get government agencies to reduce red tape via standard business reporting, or “SBR”. These efforts work via active interagency cooperation in data collection. They result both in reducing the burden imposed on business and on the modernization of reporting, giving rise to new efficiencies in business-to-government as well as business-to-business interactions. It’s a story that needs to be told so that these outcomes can be replicated in other parts of the world.”

Government-focused sessions and topics include:

  • Keynote speakers: Linda Powell, Chief Data Architect, US Treasury; Joel Gurin, author Open Data Now, NYU E-Gov Lab; and Cees de Boer, Dutch SBR Council
  • Implications of the DATA Act: policy implications, which agencies are affected, what data is reported, which systems need to be transformed to adapt to structured data
  • Data transparency initiatives already underway at US Treasury
  • Case studies on how Australia and the Netherlands have reduced red tape and cost through SBR
  • Interactive workshop on successfully implementing an XBRL program in a regulatory environment
  • Technical demonstrations on inline XBRL, dimensional modeling, normalization, the XBRL specification, and more

Speakers will represent US Treasury, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), plus the Dutch Center for Standards, Netherlands Tax & Customs, Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs (HMRC) and more.

Regulators and other policy makers, IT professionals and technologists, government contractors and businesses that provide grants and contract management services should attend.

The conference will also feature a Financial track, with sessions and speakers on corporate financial fundamentals, corporate actions and banking.

About the DATA Act

The DATA Act legislation mandates the use of a widely-used, nonproprietary data standard for reporting by federal agencies. It requires the U.S. Treasury Department and the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to adopt data standards for all spending reporting and was passed by both the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate in April. The legislation gradually phases in standards for reporting by agencies to openly available databases at Treasury, OMB, Commerce and GSA.

SYS-CON Events announced today that Secure Channels will exhibit at the 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on November 1–3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. The bedrock of Secure Channels Technology is a uniquely modified and enhanced process based on superencipherment. Superencipherment is the process of encrypting an already encrypted message one or more times, either using the same or a different algorithm.
If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Natalia Ponomareva, Software Engineer at Google, provided tips on how to be successful in large scale machine learning...
In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics.

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale.
