FB09 - The CDO Workshop
by Peter Aiken


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.


  • Comprehending the particular nature of data assets and the value inside it.
  • Understanding the challenges faced by organizations when attempting to leverage data and the reasons why the CDO role is a key to improve results.
  • Recognizing different roles, responsibilities, organizational structures involved in data practices and identyfing typical principles for the success of data management initiatives
