The Role of the Chief Data Officer (CDO) in Data-Driven Business Transformation


Much of the business transformation & innovation in today’s marketplace is driven by data. Business optimization, and entirely new business models, are emerging as data-driven technology provides unprecedented opportunity for innovation and change.

And how does this role differ from, or collaborate with, roles such as the Chief Analytics Officer, the Chief Information Officer?  Is the CDO a leader of business transformation, a supporting role that defines the technical infrastructure for change, or a combination of both?
