The Chief Data Officer

The sponsor of data democracy 

The Chief Data Officer plays a key role in the overall data strategy of an organization; his role is to master data and facilitate data access in order to become data-driven.

From an operational point of view, the CDO works with numerous other data profiles such as data stewards, data scientists, anddata analysts. The data teams’ mission is to capitalize on an organization’s data assets by analyzing and exploiting them in an informed manner.

By facilitating their work around their data sets, they are able to increase their productivity and efficiency in the enterprise.

To help CDOs reach their objectives, Zeenea developed a next-gen metadata management platform.

Maximize the reliability and value of your data

In order to build a data-driven organization, it is essential for a CDO to have a metadata management platform.

This challenge can be addressed in a new way: Updating your data regularly in Zeenea Data Catalog and moving forward in line with the organization’s priorities and strategic use cases.

With a better understanding of, easier access to, and effective communication around your data, the Chief Data Officer will make sure your organization becomes data-driven.

What is a Chief Data Officer?

According to a Gartner study presented at the Data & Analytics conference in London 2019, 90% of large companies will have a CDO by 2020!

With the arrival of Big Data, many companies find themselves with colossal amounts of data without knowing how to exploit them. In response to this challenge, a new function is emerging within these large companies: the Chief Data Officer.

The Chief Data Officer’s evolution to a Data Democracy Sponsor

 With the exponential development of data, the role of the CDO took a new scope. From now on CDOs must reconsider the organization in a cross-functional and globalizing way.

They must become the new leaders in Data Democracy within companies and respond to the call of numerous data citizens who have understood that the way in which data is processed must change radically. The new CDOs must break the bonds of data silos.

Lean Data Governance Canvas

Zeenea’s Lean Data Governance Canvas is intended for Data Managers whose missions are to clarify and orchestrate data governance within their organizations.

It is important to know that this Lean Data Governance Canvas is a toolkit for implementing data governance. The intervenors will have to iterate in order to conduct the LDGC to have the least number of assumptions as possible over time.
