The Case for the Chief Data Officer.

Reflections on organizational IT performance, combined with decisive performance measurements, indicate that IT 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 their non-depletable, non-degrading, durable, strategic asset. The redress assigns this vital, lacking function to its rightful owner and driver, the business.  Transformation may require some organizational discomfort. We now have evidence that organizations successfully creating CDOs achieve improved results. Further, these directly and obviously come from better organizational data management stemming from the CDO leadership.
