While data governance, data quality, and regulatory drivers maintain to be critical areas of business for data and analytics leaders, the new CDO is one who extends beyond these foundational underpinnings of the office to spearhead data-driven organizations. With an increasing dependence on data and insights as enterprises move to a digital-first mindset, it is up to the CDO to create or modernize their data and analytics programs and embrace value creation over risk mitigation. In this dinner discussion, CDOs discuss how to effectively usher their organizations into a digital business environment through stronger data literacy, data integration, and advanced analytics campaigns.
Topic 1: Taking the Lead to Improve Data Literacy
- How are you helping people develop a new mindset that establishes a new culture and set of behaviors around data and analytics?
- What areas of your business derive the most value from analytic insight, and how are you tracking the outcomes and benefits?
- Have you established ethical guidelines for your program? Do themes like transparency, data protection, and analyst integrity figure in to your ethical code?
Topic 2: Aligning Your Data Harmony Strategy With Digital Business Demands
- How have digital initiatives impacted your data governance and data sharing strategies? In what ways have these strategies coalesced into a “data hub” strategy (i.e. a hub-and-spoke approach to data integration)?
- What are you doing with your data lake (i.e. data in one system but not necessarily harmonized)? How are you tackling privacy and security concerns for your data lake or data hub?
- What emerging technologies have you implemented to streamline data production and analytic insights?
