Coming Soon

The CDAO Executive Summit agendas are driven by the mission-critical priorities identified among the community. Each agenda is uniquely crafted ’by CDAOs, for CDAOs,’ and will be available closer to the gathering. All topics and sessions will be inspired by the following themes.

Foster a Strong Data and Analytics Function Through Leadership and Influence

CDAOs must increasingly demonstrate how D&A can improve business processes, lead to better decisions and support digital transformation. CDAOs must foster critical leadership behaviors such as influencing, communication and building an engaged team to drive a strong data function throughout the enterprise.

Restructuring Data Strategy and Governance to Responsibly Deploy Generative AI

As AI and associated emerging technologies continue to disrupt businesses, CDAOs must continue to assess the organizational readiness, evaluate existing analytics capabilities, ensure effective governance and determine the true implications of generative AI throughout the organization.

Enhance Data Literacy Across the Organization to Drive Business Value

Making data-informed decisions a habit across the enterprise is key to driving digital business. CDAOs must work to enhance data literacy across all business units, making it easier for business users to integrate data and analytics into their workflow and generate business value.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming in-person gathering
