The role of the chief data officer has evolved from mitigating risk to creating business value with data assets. The pressure is on.
Organizations are mandating that the CDO create business value with data assets, although this is not without many challenges that thwart the success of critical information initiatives. Join us for a webinar where we explore the unique challenges the CDO faces and offer recommendations to avoid pitfalls.
Caserta principal data strategists, Doug Laney and Doug Gray provide their perspectives on the most important considerations and aspects that CDOs and other data and analytics leaders should address in order to achieve success in their role.
