With the ever-increasing role of Data in the context of unlocking business value, the role of the Chief Data Officer (CDO) has achieved strategic significance.
We are delighted to launch the Opticos CDO network in an effort to engage with executives, showcase best practices, and foster interactions in the area of Data strategy, management and governance.
“The Opticos CDO network has already had two network meetings. The representation is very satisfying, and we have participants across various domains such as banking, transportation, security, manufacturing, and insurance. The participants are willing to contribute, and they appreciate the possibility of networking and knowledge exchange”, says Madeleine Tornard, project leader of the CDO network at Opticos.
For example, some of the topics in focus at the CDO network sessions relate to how companies’ Data Management will be affected by the new EU directives, namely:
Another interesting area which was discussed include “Data Governance – how do we work within our organizations?” This topic witnessed active participation by the attendees.
“The network and its initial meetings provided a great platform for me to exchange experiences and discuss current and future challenges with peers. I look forward to our future meetings and playing a role in expanding the network.”- CDO network participant
In response to the expressed interest in a face-to-face gathering, our next CDO meeting is scheduled to take place at our new Stockholm office on November 23rd. The meeting will cover other interesting areas such as Data Platforms, Architecture, Cloud/On-prem, and choices of suppliers.
