  • The thinking behind IHS Markit’s recent launch of the Data Dictionary and the critical role it plays in EDM’s migration to a SaaS-based model. 
  • The challenges facing IHS Markit’s buy-side clients right now from a data management perspective and how EDM is helping them to address those challenges.
  • What the buy side can expect from EDM looking forward and whether there are any significant features and functions the firm is readying for the market.
