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.

The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate. The massive amounts of Big Data requiring real-time analysis is flooding legacy IT systems and giving way to cloud environments that can handle the unpredictable workloads.

The information technology sphere undergoes what we like to call a paradigm shift, sea change or plain old ‘upheaval’ roughly every five years or so. Don’t ask anybody why this half decade cyclicality exists; it just has to be so. Accept that reinvention happens constantly and that major seismic shifts are tangibly felt by us human beings roughly every 1826.21 days… and we can move on.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges.

The evolution of the database is under constant upheaval, discussion, debate and (if you will excuse the expression) 'analysis.' This basic truth is now more relevant, pertinent and pressing than ever due to the prevalence of Big Data (and the need to impose analytics of insight upon it) driven by social, mobile, cloud and of course the Internet of (Every) Things. Today then, as a staple of our IT infrastructure, databases have been around for over 50 years now with first references of the ter...
