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.
In a world that values data as an asset, governance is paramount to harness the full potential of organizational insights. With generative AI emerging as a major advancement, data and analytics leaders must consider the risks, benefits and ethics to implement a governance program to address it.
To sharpen decision-making, data and analytics leaders must upskill the workforce to embrace a culture that puts data first. To achieve this, leadership must foster an environment of continuous learning, educating the enterprise about the context of data and the analytics tools available.
Augmenting workflows and improving the customer experience through artificial intelligence and machine learning are top of mind for CDAOs. Many are treating data as a product, evangelizing the value of analytics and optimizing operating budgets to do more with less.
Venue information will be available shortly.
