Michael McNab – SVP Global Business Services, Franklin Templeton Investments

Much is written about how producing the right data could impact business results. But little is discussed about how the data consumption side can equally effect business productivity and profitability. Growing transparency requirements around the world have put a premium on the delivery of timely data dissemination and intelligent use of the data for effective client communications. Mike will provide a business sponsor’s perspective of the many benefits (both anticipated and unanticipated) realized from data virtualization on these issues. He will also share insights on lessons learned, success factors, and thoughts on some emerging opportunities.
