The Business Case for a Chief Data Officer
There is a compelling business case for a Chief data officers to establish authority, secure budget and resources, and monetize their organization’s information assets.

There is a strategic need, a financial need, and an improvement need for executive responsibility when it comes to these information assets.
But some organizations still struggle with making a business case for the role. And even existing chief data officers can be unsure about how to formally justify their existence.

Douglas Laney conducted a study of hundreds of organizations with and without a CDO to determine how businesses with a CDO operate differently, including:

• Do organizations with a CDO benefit in any way?
• How does having a CDO affect the level of data quality and data governance?
• How does having a CDO affect data democratization and monetization?
• How does having a CDO affect the ability of an organization’s to value its data?
• Is there a difference between actual C-level CDOs and those who are not?
• How do investors feel about companies with a CDO?
• Where do great CDOs come from and what is their desired career path?

Ultimately, is the CDO really making a difference?
