EDGAR Online Participates in "Big Data" and Financial Services Webinar Hosted by FierceFinance
February 16, 2012

EDGAR® Online, Inc. (NASDAQ: EDGR), a premier provider of fundamental financial data, analytics and disclosure management services, announced today that Chief Marketing Officer David A. Frankel will participate in “The Coming Big Data Convergence in Financial Services” webinar hosted by FierceFinance on Thursday, February 16 at 2 p.m. ET.

The financial markets have historically been driven by data and information, but with the proliferation of data today, traditional methods of collecting and analyzing data are too time-consuming. In this fast-paced market, companies must be agile and quick to capture, use and analyze data for informed decision making and to drive value within the organization.

Within the broad topic of “big data,” Mr. Frankel will examine how companies struggle to handle, review and analyze the growing amounts of data. In addition to outlining the potential pitfalls of big data, Mr. Frankel will delve into the benefits of proactively addressing these problems and will demonstrate how companies can leverage technology to transform the collection and classification of data; standardize data creation; and standards-based analysis. By facing “big data” head on with the right expertise and tools, companies can gain greater control of governance, risk and compliance (GRC) efforts across all areas of the enterprise.

“We are in a data-driven industry. Firms must be able to quickly categorize, tag and analyze internal and external data to propel knowledgeable decision making,” said David A. Frankel, chief marketing officer of EDGAR Online. “It’s about using the data to drive value within the organization for improved enterprise risk management, increased regulatory compliance and enhanced governance.”

The webinar will also include the moderator, Jim Kim, editor of FierceFinance, and speakers Marco Pacelli, CEO of ClickFox and Chris Edgington, banking and financial services industry solutions manager at Kofax. Register for the online webinar here.
