Global Capital Markets and the Global Economy
• In a world of mass customization, standard financial statements have
less meaning and relevance
• need to verify process by which info is collected, sorted and reported
• Harmonize standards: data, GAAP, audit
• Change [reporting] toward the public release of more non financial
info, customized to user, accessed far more frequently

Data Centric Shifts the focus/culture
Application & System Centric
Standards & Data Centric
• Dependent on system
Integrators, developers,
architects
• Business rules are tied to data
source
• Expensive interfaces and
patches
• Open standards enable
interoperability
• Change is risky and expensive
• Changes made to taxonomy
PwC
• Semantic ‘consensus’
PwC
So let’s ‘containerize’ data and transport it
anywhere…..
