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: Moving From Digital Transformation to Intelligence Transformation

  • How are you defining advanced analytics in your organization?
  • Where is your focus in advanced analytics and why? What best practices can you share in your journey around advanced analytics (e.g. chatbots, recommendation engines, personalization, NLP, etc.)?
  • How are you measuring and communicating the confidence in your advanced analytics (e.g. AI models) to the business?
