For decades, business leaders have made decisions through more traditional means, based on a handful of factors or a gut feeling. But in the age of big data, organisations are shifting towards advanced analytics for critical decision-making. In fact, according to Gartner, 70% of public companies that outperform competitors on key financial metrics will report being data-and-analytics-centric by 2025. To establish a data-driven culture, CDAOs must show ROI by linking their data strategy to the business strategy, upskilling the workforce to be data-literate, establishing a framework of connected governance and prototyping use cases that advance mission-critical priorities.

In this interactive conversation, CDAOs will discuss their role in proactively contributing to analytics-based decision-making.

Topic 1: Driving Business Outcomes with Your Data Strategy

  • Are your workforce and C-suite bought into a data-driven mission?

  • Have you been able to execute on mission-critical priorities with your data strategy?

  • How are you demonstrating ROI from your data investments and connecting to your wider business strategy?

Topic 2: Identifying the Processes and Technology to Advance Decision-Making

  • How are you working to build a foundation of trusted data?

  • Are establishing connected governance to accommodate fragmented data across non-traditional sources?

  • Are you using AI or other advanced tools to augment decision-making?
