The Evolving Role of the CDAO in a Data-driven Enterprise

If last year’s black swan event had a silver lining it is that it illuminated the vital importance and strategic value of the role of the CDAO in an organization’s ability to quickly pivot and maintain resilience during volatile times. As a result CDAO’s have a seat at the table like never before. And as organizations continue to accelerate their digital and data journeys, the role of the CDAO will increasingly pivot towards more strategic, innovative and revenue generating responsibilities.

Join this thoughtful conversation with SAP’s own Global CDAO to discuss how to draw a roadmap for both yourself and the role of the CDAO within your own organization. Your Toronto CDO community will discuss:

  • The organizational structure and the role required for success at different levels of an organization’s digital and data maturity
  • Strategically combining offense and defense to simultaneously drive innovation and compliance
  • CDAO as a partner to the executive suite and storyteller to the board
  • Evolving the role towards driving a product centric organization
