David Newman is Senior Vice President and Strategic Planning Manager of Enterprise Architecture at Wells Fargo Bank. David also chairs the Semantic Technology program for the Enterprise Data Management (EDM) Council and is leading an industry-wide effort with the Object Management Group (OMG) to develop operational ontologies for the financial industry known as the Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO). FIBO is a free and open source ontology that semantically describes business entities, derivatives, securities, metadata as well as other financial instruments. FIBO can be used to support macroprudential and institutional risk management, regulatory compliance and reporting, as well as risk analytics and many other financial use cases. David is also a frequent speaker at industry conferences on semantic technology as well as at conferences on systemic financial risk. David was also a participant in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) working group that developed the SPARQL 1.1 semantic query language standard.
