“The Chief Data Officer role is expanding in number, and breadth of responsibility, faster than predicted. Though typically initiated as a governance or analytical role, CDOs are increasingly being brought into areas such as product innovation, data security, customer experience, technology selection and marketing strategy. This is an exciting time to be part of the CDO community and we’re thrilled to have such a forward-looking agenda that reflects this dynamism,” said Tony Shaw, Founder of DATAVERSITY and chief instigator behind CDO Vision.

CDO Vision will be held in conjunction with the annual Enterprise Data World (EDW) Conference. EDW is a comprehensive, vendor-neutral data management conference, with over 800 attendees annually and hundreds of hours of sessions, workshops, case studies, tutorials, and networking opportunities. Attendees of CDO Vision will have access to the large exhibition area and extensive workshop agenda of the EDW Conference.

This two-day event is unique in its format. It is attended by mostly senior level information executives; the presentations consist of cross-industry and cross-disciplinary approaches; and the program is designed to be one-third presentation, one-third discussion, and one-third networking with small breakout conversations led by industry experts.

Key themes presented during the two-day event include structure and organization, structure and partnership, scaling data governance, data leadership and the CDO as a change agent, and enterprise data science. These topics will be discussed in presentations, interactive panel discussions, and workshop sessions.

CDO Vision speakers include corporate leaders, entrepreneurs, policy-shapers, and top-level CDOs such as Liz Rowe, Chief Data Officer of State of New Jersey. Executive Vice President and Chief Data Officer of BB&T James Tyo, and Michael Servaes, Chief Data Officer of the British Army. These are just a few of the speakers scheduled.
