About the Webinar

As organizations continue to embrace digital transformation, they are looking to their data to power these initiatives. The chief data officer (CDO) is quickly emerging as an integral role in ensuring this process runs smoothly. While the role is relatively new to many organizations, the value a CDO adds is widely acknowledged by other C-level executives. In fact, 82% of CIOs believe there is a compelling case to hire a CDO in most organizations today.

Yet, not all CDOs are set up for success equally. Less than half of CDOs are given a clear remit or objective when they join an organization. For many of them, they’re pioneering their role as they go along. In order for businesses to become data-driven, they need to empower their CDO to ensure quality information that can be used in a meaningful way throughout the organization.

Join us for an informational webinar in which we’ll share our findings from more than 50 CDO interviews. We’ll discuss how the role has changed over the last several years, and how the realities of the position may differ from the expectations set forth. Other topics will include:

  • A snapshot of the average CDO
  • Core responsibilities of the CDO
  • The CDO’s reporting structure
  • The relationship between the CDO and CIO
