Data, Data, Everywhere... Bring in a new CDO

We all know the fast becoming old adage “data is the new oil”, with businesses around the world now strategizing on how best to derive value from the streams of data generated in the digital era. Unleashing the power of data is a problem with many answers, but in order to find such lucrative answers you must first empower an individual to take charge of the data journey – and that individual is the Chief Digital Officer.

The latest C-suite acronym sitting among the CEO,COO and CFO is the key player in the data game. The CDO is an enabler, the one with the vision, strategy and technical know-how who will unleash the power of data in an organisation.

However, although the CDO is a vital factor in the data success of an organisation, they are still a small, if elite, group of professionals. Recruiting from such a small pool raises obvious challenges, as well as the obstacles faced in trying to define and map such a role. Recruiting a CDO also comes with its own myriad of challenges, before and after such an appointment – where do you find a CDO? What responsibilities will they have? Who do they report to? Where do they sit in an organisation?

Join Hitachi Vantara at the famous Quaglino’s restaurant in London to discuss this compelling topic in luxurious surroundings. This exclusive Dining Club will look to address all of these CDO challenges and more, with peers and experts coming together to discuss this new, emerging and ever more important role.
