The changing role of the chief data officer

From data management to data advantage

Industry 4.0 signifies a new industrial revolution. It’s the transformation in how business functions, turning it into one that communicates, analyzes, and uses data to drive intelligent action.

To reap the business benefits driven by data, executives should shift their organization’s operations from classic data management to a data advantage perspective that is connected across the enterprise.

A strong data function led by an executive officer—the chief data officer, in particular—is critical to enabling the data advantage perspective. Companies that don’t address and adapt their operations will potentially disappear in the Industry 4.0 landscape.

The critical role of CDO leadership

The CDO role is quickly transforming and emerging as a critical enabler among the leadership team. CDOs are tasked with enhancing executive decision making, improving operational efficiency, and empowering innovation.

A successful office of the CDO needs:

  • Executive-level alignment
  • New talent model support
  • A leader who can deliver as an operator, catalyst, technologist, and strategist

Having data is no longer an advantage; the data advantage perspective comes with managing it and leveraging it as a primary business driver.

What we do

Through CDO–Smart Services, we will incrementally staff, build, align, and train your “data organization” for you.

We’ll help you:

  • Define the CDO goals, responsibilities, operating model design, and relationship with other C-suite executives
  • Develop a change management approach and build the case for change
  • Discuss maturity assessments, CDO data vision, and CDO strategy
  • Stand up the CDO organization, define skills and recruit roles, and fully implement and/or run the office of the CDO
  • Assist in the execution and management of strategic initiatives (i.e. data management, governance, and analytics) and the realization of the value (e.g. data-driven decisions, operations efficiencies, and data monetization)
  • Conduct periodic audits, maturity, and compliance assessments
