Are you among the 94 percent of companies that, according to Accenture, use data to identify new sources of revenue? If you want to maximize the benefits of that data for new business, you’ll need to improve your enterprise’s data management roles and possibly create new ones.
ObjectRocket has launched a new guide, The Emerging Skillsets of the Data Revolution: Defining Key Data Roles, that offers a big-picture view of two new data-management roles (chief data officer and chief analytics officer) and the skills you’ll need to fill them. It also looks at how the roles of database administrator and data architect are changing.
The e-book is free (no registration required) and explains how you can integrate emerging data skill sets into your own enterprise. It includes ideas and insights from Ali Farahani (chief data officer in the County of Los Angeles Chief Information Office), John Reed (senior executive director at Robert Half Technology), Kenny Gorman (co-founder of ObjectRocket), and David Murphy (lead DBA at ObjectRocket).
An infographic, summarizing the responsibilities and jobs skills needed in “4 Critical Jobs in the Data Revolution,” is available at no cost here.
