Hug a CDO (Open to All)

Tuesday, October 10 | 12:00PM–12:45PM CT | W192a, Level 1
Session Type: Meeting
Delivery Format: Meeting

Data is the glue that binds people, processes, and technology. A panel of CDOs (and/or those who function as such) will describe what that means at their institutions. Candid questions will be welcome to contextualize the CDO (or similar) role at other institutions. Our objective is to build rapport between IT, business units, and data functions, and to provide support to anyone currently serving in, aspiring to, or attempting to understand the CDO role.
