With the extraordinary explosion of data, CIOs ironically don’t spend time managing data. They’re focused on the portfolio of infrastructure initiatives, which have grown in direct proportion with the amount of data. Truly data-centric/information-driven organizations will have a role with the authority to leverage organizational data resources across the enterprise in support of business strategies and strategic competitive advantage. This presentation will provide a brief historical perspective of the role of CIO, and what is needed now for the top data job. Attendees will learn:

  • how to re-organize operational alignment for data-centricity
  • what data-centric development entails
  • the roles and responsibilities of the Chief Data Officer
  • touch points across the organization

A framework for data-centric thinking will be provided and discussed.
