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.

Structuring Data Governance to Improve the Digital Enterprise

With more data than ever flowing into the enterprise, data and analytics leaders must ensure their governance framework is agile and scalable. By evolving governance policies and structure over time, leaders can boost efficiency and enable self-service data.

Fostering a Culture of Data Literacy and Analytics-Based Decision Making

To stay competitive in an increasingly digital world, CDAOs should use data and advanced analytics to enhance decision making. To achieve this, leaders must inspire a data-driven culture —establishing a foundation of data literacy and transforming the way data is used and consumed internally.

Data Sharing — Driving Business Value Through Access & Collaboration

As the demand for insights quickly increases, it's imperative for the CDAO to accelerate the delivery of insights so key stakeholders can make timely decisions. Access and collaboration are key elements in creating value, ultimately resulting in the best business outcomes.
