Level:  Business

This discussion presents a condensed overview of the CDO Agenda, and will help you to:

  • Recognize when data challenges are really the root cause of underlying business and IT problems;
  • Build business cases to obtain requisite funding for these initiatives; and
  • Rapidly achieve tangible recognizable results ensuring further investment.
Why you should attend:

  • Data challenges are embedded in virtually all business and governmental initiatives – representing a very real "IT Achilles heel"
  • Very little time and attention is focused on data in either college/university education or practical training
  • Understanding the value of standing up a data team is much more effective than attempting to address these challenges piecemeal

Traditional approaches while fine in theory do not reflect the realities of today's regulatory and budget constrained environments.
