The inaugural Capital Data Summit took place on Feb. 15, 2017 at The Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. Here on the NVTC blog, we continue to share content from this exciting event.
The Summit’s Role of the CDO panel explored the role of the CDO and provided insights into how the role is evolving. Panelists discussed the adoption of big data and analytics within their respective organizations and identified obstacles that they currently are facing in the performance of their role.
Panelists included Freddie Mac Vice President of Single Family Data Delivery Services Susan Burke, HHS Office of the Inspector General Senior Advisor to the Chief Data Officer Timothy Kropp and District of Columbia Chief Data Officer Barney Krucoff. Booz Allen Principal Data Science Dr. Kirk Borne moderated.
Some of the key points that emerged from the panel included:
- Data is an enterprise asset that must be supported by flexible architecture so it can be leveraged and utilized across different organizational teams.
- It is a responsibility of the CDO to reduce friction that prohibits the flow of data across the enterprise and between the enterprise and the public.
- Since data informs and drives business, many CDOs and their departments are structured under the CEO umbrella today; that doesn’t mean there aren’t strong lines of communication and partnership to the CIO umbrella.
