San Francisco, CA– Changes in technology, the rise of Big Data & the Internet of Things are just a few of the reasons why the Chief Data Officer role is becoming ever more prominent. There are now numerous potential sources of information that might be of value to an organization, across different business sectors and departments. Successful organizations need someone to take ownership of the vast amounts of data now available. What is the value of this data? Where can action be taken? Which data is a priority? These unanswered questions have created a culture of uncertainty amongst many data teams.

The Chief Data Officer Summit, taking place in San Francisco this May, will bring together informative speakers from across industries to discuss the challenges and accomplishments of their role and how they are boosting revenue generation through more effective use of enterprise data insight at every level.

Covering issues such as the roles and responsibilities of the Chief Data Officer, data governance and building a data driven culture, the summit will combine keynote presentations with open discussions, panel sessions & networking in order to maximize participation between attendees.

Amongst the agenda of 25+ data pioneers is Dianna Anderson, Chief Data Officer for the State of Colorado, who is responsible for championing, developing and maintaining the Enterprise-Wide Information Architecture (EIA) across the state. Both public and private sectors have increasingly become aware of the value of information technology, data integration and business intelligence, as well as the value of data as an enterprise asset. In her presentation ‘The Chief Data Officer Role – Knowledge Means Change.’ Dianna will take the audience through the stages of her career and the opportunities that have arisen from the knowledge that is now available due to advances in technology.

Dianna will be joined by fellow Chief Data Officers from HSBC, Express Scripts, TD Bank, OpticsPlanet, LA County, Conning & many more. For a complete list of speakers, agenda and registration details for the Chief Data Officer Summit, visit the event website.
