What CDOs Need to Know
As a data leader, you already know that data plays a key role in your company’s digital transformation. And why it is integral in helping to navigate the ever-changing technological and business landscape. But it can be frustrating to manage this resource across many channels within your organization. A recent survey of 300 data leaders (CDOs, CAOs and CDAOs) in the United States, Europe and Asia Pacific shows this. Companies juggle data across five different data management solutions on average. This has prompted 46% of those surveyed to invest in new technology to integrate multiple solutions over the past two years.
It’s common to invest in a variety of platforms and tools to drive business outcomes. But ultimately there is only one platform that matters—your data. You cannot lose sight of your data as the platform that fuels business strategies and drives outcomes. Treating data as a platform requires comprehensive data management capabilities. This creates your end-to-end data value chain, empowering your company and data consumers to engage with trusted data. And then takes it to the next level by connecting, governing and delivering data to all types of users.
