With the debut of generative AI, the world of work has changed forever. This new cutting-edge capability transforms operations for data and analytics leaders, but also disrupts all organisational functions around the globe. According to Gartner, by 2027, the productivity value of AI will be recognised as a primary economic indicator of national power. And by 2026, Gartner predicts the chief data and analytics officers' ability to deliver data and AI literacy, culture and a skilled workforce will be a top-three determining factor in supporting business strategy. How can the CDAO reset D&A governance and influence culture to execute a successful D&A strategy?

In this interactive discussion, CDAOs will explore strategies and best practices in building a robust foundation to drive business and innovation with AI.

Resetting your D&A governance framework for AI

  • Do you currently have a strategy for governing AI?
  • Are there any changes happening to your data and analytics governance framework?
  • Do you have the proper people, processes and technology in place to evolve with next-generation governance?

Supporting a data-centric culture by inspiring fluency

  • Are you able to effectively communicate the value of your D&A program?
  • How are you developing the core competencies of the workforce to support D&A?
  • How are you influencing a data-first mindset?
