Inside the creation of Adams Street’s data mart

How a venerable firm got a grip on 40 years of data, plus big news from the CFOs and COOs Forum team.

First off: big news on the CFOs and COOs Forum front. The director of the SEC’s division of corporation finance, William Hinman, will be on stage participating in a fireside chat. Details here.

Second: in the next instalment of our ‘tech tales’ series, Adams Street Partners’ CTO Alicia Pando walks us through the firm’s major project to centralize its four decades of fund data. I’m sure the situation the venerable firm faced – having years of data residing in different places – will be familiar to any longstanding business.

If you want to make the most of exciting new tech, then you need to get your data house in order. This was a big theme emerging from our deep dive into robotics and AI earlier this year.
