Datamaran’s first European User Forum

Decoding your industry's future challenges

Amsterdam, 26 November 2018

The First European User Forum took place on the 26th of November at The Tire Station in Amsterdam. Exclusive to Datamaran clients only, the User Forum is a great opportunity to meet other Datamaran users and get actionable insights and the latest best practice on benchmarking, materiality analysis, and continuous monitoring of non-financial issues.

The event brought together like-minded professionals to exchange ideas in a fun and interactive way. To ensure the participants had the best experience we have discussed top non-financial topics or issues, based on the Datamaran Ontology.

In addition to a full day of inspirational talks, workshops, and fabulous networking–all tailored to the users needs–the participants were introduced to Datamaran’s newly launched Certification Program. The program will help users to build familiarity and competency in using Datamaran.
