What does a "Data Driven Business" look like from an organizational perspective? In particular, what are the new Leadership, Analytics and Data Science roles and where do they report to in the organization?

This discussion will be structured into two primary themes. The first will cover the emergence of leadership roles including Chief Data Officer (CDO) and Chief Analytics Officer (CAO). The second part of the discussion will focus on new analytical functions such as the Data Science, and the conditions necessary for those to be successful in a large organization.

  • Do you need a CDO and/or a CAO?
  • Do you need a "data organization" or an Analytics Center of Excellence (CoE)?
  • Can Analytics and Governance be run from the same CDO office? Should they?
  • What CDO reporting structures are proving most successful?
  • What is the goal of a Data Scientist?
  • Technical and analytical skills required by effective Data Scientists
  • What is a Data Engineer and how is this different from a Data Scientist?
  • Communities of Practice, Centers of Excellence, and Shared Services
  • How do Data Science roles relate to current IT organizations? To business organizations?
  • Data Science and Data Stewardship
  • What can be out sourced? What should be?
