The Case for the CDO”
By Dr. Peter Aiken, Ph.D., Data Blueprint

 

Abstract
Reflections on organizational IT performance, combined with decisive performance measurements, indicate that IT management has been asked to do a job that it cannot do well.  Data are assets that deserve to be managed as professionally and aggressively as comparable organizational assets.  Studies show that approximately 10% of organizations achieve a positive return on their investments in data.  In the face of the accelerating "data explosion," this leaves most organizations unprepared to leverage a non-degrading, strategic asset.  The redress assigns this vital, lacking function to its rightful owner and driver, the business.  Transformation may require some organizational discomfort.  We are confident organizations that successfully create CDOs will achieve improved organizational performance results.  And further that these will directly and obviously come from better organizational data management stemming from the CDO leadership.

7:30 p.m.

Closing Remarks  - by TDWI DC President,  Vivek Sethunatesan
