San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2015
With the current expansion of data and the role it plays in driving crucial business decisions, the need for chief data officers has become essential. Over 25% of Fortune 500 companies now employ CDOs, and their position is as diverse as the data being collected.
Implementing CDOs into a business is now more of a necessity than a luxury as the vast amount of data collected must be processed, analyzed and understood by decision makers in order to get the most out of the collated information. However with all newly developed positions there are challenges, many of which are shared by companies that are at the same stage of expansion.
The Chief Data Officer Summit returns to the West Coast on April 28 & 29, taking place at the San Jose Convention Center. Following the success of last year’s event, the summit will continue to provide fresh and up to date content, with a diverse line-up of 20+ industry speakers and 150+ data strategy professionals in attendance across 2 days of interactive learning.
Ian Kalin, Chief Data Officer at the US Dept. of Commerce will share his presentation 'America’s Data Agency: An Inspiring Past & Ambitious Future'. Ian is passionate about empowering people with better information and he has a colourful history from beginning his career as a Counter-Terrorism Officer in the Navy, to then being recruited by the White House before returning to the private sector to support large organisations such as Google, and start-ups like Socrata. In his presentation, Ian will disclose stories on where the Department has been, it’s present position, and what the future holds for its customers.
Other topics to be covered include:
- Data Virtulization in Financial Services
- Building a Data-Driven LA
- A CDOs Guide to Business Management
- Developing an Enterprise Analytic Strategy
- Beyond Shiny Dashboards: The ROI of BI
- Examining the Role of the CDO Across the Enterprise
"This event will bring together top data leaders for 2 days and promises interactive learning and excellent networking opportunities," says Gabrielle Morse, International Event Organiser. "Attendees will hear from CDOs and high-level executives within the enterprise data management and data strategy space."
The summit will also provide invaluable networking opportunities, and there will be every chance to speak with leading solutions and service providers, as well as a panel session 'The Role of the Chief Data Officer' led by Mark Ramsey at Samsung
