Why Attend?

While the Chief Data Officer (CDOs) role is not necessarily new anymore, it is still in its infancy compared to other C-level roles. And while we know that CDOs are responsible for data-driven activity across the organization, the specific responsibilities – and authority – of the CDO role varies significantly from organization to organization. As the CDO role grows in importance, defining it, and what makes it successful, is increasingly critical.

Should CDO success be judged by technology metrics, like the number of data assets certified and under management? Perhaps human capital criteria, like the number of data stewards on-boarded, should be considered too? Beyond the tech and the team, various business metrics, like growth, cost savings, or even revenue, may add pressure, but can also elevate the Data Office’s visibility and respect.
