Session 5B

The CDO Role: A Decade of Progress- What's Next? - A CDO Panel Discussion

← Back to Agenda

According to NewVantage Partners annual executive survey, only 12% of firms had appointed a Chief Data Officer in 2012.  By 2021, 65% of firms reported having a CDO in place.  Yet challenges remain – only a third of firms report that this role is well established and successful.  This session explores the evolution of the CDO role over the course of the past decade with 5 distinguished Fortune 1000 CDO’s.  What’s working?  What’s not working?  What are the greatest challenges?  Where has substantial progress been made?  What does the future hold?  Join us for this compelling discussion of lessons learned and the road ahead.
