Chief Data Officers Play A Leading Role In Business Transformation

September 11, 2017


Why Read This Report

Until recently, the chief data officer (CDO) was the new kid on the block. Today, half of data and analytics decision makers report working for a firm with a CDO. At the 11th Annual MIT Chief Data Officer and Information Quality Symposium, emerging data leaders described new initiatives that demonstrate a shift in their responsibilities from "defensive" to "offensive" or value-generating. This report helps CIOs understand their colleagues' new responsibilities and how best to partner with them to drive data innovation and business transformation.
