Brian Cunningham, Bloomberg

It was clear that moderator Larry Shiller, formerly of Bridgewater Associates, expected the members of his panel to have a clear and articulated set of data principles. But even though they were at the Buy Side North American Summit to discuss data management challenges, none could put forward a firm-wide tablet of data commandments. 

“If you don’t have any data principles, how the heck do you know what you’re governing?” Shiller asked.
