In our webinar, our guest speaker from Forrester will describe the Informatica-commissioned research on the emerging CDO function. This includes answering the following questions:
•What is driving the emergence of the CDO role?
•Is the CDO a short term function and a transition point to something else?
•What are the key functions that CDOs are trying to accomplish?
•What relationships does the CDO need?
•What are the key things that a CDO needs to do to succeed?
In general, the May 2016 Forrester Consulting study, Data-Centric Business Need a Data-Driven Leader, showed that CDOs are business leaders that have as their goal to build data-driven businesses. This means managing business functions including data governance, data management, data science, and enterprise data strategy. After Forrester shares their CDO research, Informatica will review each of the CDO functions and share how an integrated data platform holistically addresses each function.
Over the last several years, companies have brought data and analytics into the c-suite in a major way. Primarily exemplified by the Chief Analytics Officer and Chief Data Officer, the creation of these new c-level roles illustrates — and signals to the rest of the organization — the importance of data and analytics.
But not without some organizational risk.
When created and defined with clarity, CAO and CDO roles provide a management structure around data management and security, analytics, and business intelligence, which have previously been decentralized and diffused within an organization.
But role proliferation in data and analytics can make organizational collaboration and execution around information and technology more difficult, sparking turf battles, confusing reporting structures, and conflicting priorities.
This webinar explores the opportunities, as well as the challenges and potential conflicts, that often arise when a company opts to name a Chief Analytics Officer or Chief Data Officer (or both). IIA Faculty Members Tom Davenport, Bob Morison, Bill Franks and Mike Lampa review examples from their latest research on the roles and responsibilities of Chief Analyitcs Officers and Chief Data Officers, and offer suggestions to help both data and analytics chiefs succeed within their organizations.

While this year’s Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) testing is behind us, it does not mean the industry is in the clear when it comes to quality data and efficiently resolving a variety of data-related issues. Despite investments in formal data governance programs, banks are far from streamlining and eliminating data quality issues that can affect existing risk management and regulatory reporting activities.
Mandates from CCAR and BCBS239 demand tremendous data governance and IT Infrastructure to support core business functions and prevailing regulatory requirements. It requires solutions which support effective data governance and stewardship to ensure the business has the data that is “fit for use” and “highly accurate” in today’s exceedingly regulated banking industry.
Join BNP Paribas, Informatica, and Xoriant to learn:
• The biggest data sourcing challenges banks are facing with CCAR and BCBS 239 and why
• Best practices on how to effectively deal with data issues across your data governance and data management practices
• Xoriant’s CCAR data quality and remediation solutions and services
• Informatica’s platform solution for enterprise risk management and compliance
Who should attend?
• Banks who are currently or will be subject to CCAR/BCBS 239
• Key data governance players (e.g. Chief Data Officers, CCAR Project and Program Managers responsible for reporting on data sourcing and issue management)
• Risk and compliance personnel (e.g. CCAR/DFAST Project team members)
• Enterprise, Information, and Data Architects working in the banking sector
Collateralized Debt Obligations – CDOs – have been the focus of much attention and ire in the wake of the credit crisis. But litigation over these structured financial products has been largely overshadowed by more high profile actions, such as subprime class actions and Ponzi scheme litigation. That could change in the coming months as a number of courts decide motions to dismiss that currently are pending in several CDO cases. Those decisions have the potential to invite additional CDO lawsuits or stop such suits in their tracks.
Join Jay Tambe and James Goldfarb of Jones Day, and Jeff Nielsen and Gene Deetz of Navigant Consulting at 2 p.m. on June 11 for a timely webinar focusing on CDOs, the current lawsuits, and the litigation risks and issues facing CDO investors and the professionals that create, market, manage, and administer CDOs.
Finding extra cash resources in businesses these days is unheard of. How many times have you needed money to implement an innovative idea but there’s no budget available? Guenther Tolkmit, Chief Delivery Officer of VMS, will talk about how VMS’s signature solution, SCOOP, enables its customers to simulate how to free up cash in operational processes and give answers to “unsolvable” questions.
Guenther will present a live demo which runs on SAP HANA One and describe his experience with working with HANA One. He will present actual uses cases where VMS successfully identified resources for customers and talk about how HANA One is instrumental in SCOOP’s performance.
Do you have trouble getting access to the right data? This has been a challenge for many data professionals — from CDO’s to data analysts. Though there is a wealth of data, only about 10% of it is actually accessible.
We need “big information” to be able to deliver business decisions as this continues to be a challenge for data scientists in the next 5 years.
According to Gartner, 90% of large organizations will have hired a Chief Data Officer (CDO) by the end of next year. That’s the good news. The bad news: Gartner believes that only 50% will succeed. Do you feel you have the people, processes and technology required to become a successful CDO? This session is designed to help.
In this engaging power session, Jim Tyo, Chief Data Officer at Nationwide and Tom Davenport, Harvard Business School, share the secrets behind building an effective “Office of the CDO”. They will focus on:
- Hiring the right talent: what specific roles should you hire (and which ones should you avoid).
- Establishing the right process: what practices yield the most results (and which ones will most likely cause you to fail)
- Choosing the right technology: what technology is in, what technology is out (how you should map capabilities to ambition).
Jim Tyo has been a Chief Data Officer for close to 10 years. Prior to Nationwide, he was CDO at large Fortune 500 companies BB&T and USAA. He brings a vast array of best practices and is a frequent keynote speaker. Tom Davenport, of Harvard Business School fame, is one of the top 3 business/technology analysts in the world and one of the 100 most influential people in the IT industry according to Fortune Magazine. He’s authored 18 books and written hundreds of articles on the topic of Business Analytics and Big Data. This session promises to be engaging and rich in information. Don’t forget to bring a notepad and a pen!

Recently Tesco went out in an Essential Retail article and defended legacy systems. “If you don’t have legacy, you are probably not in business”, said their CDO, Thomas Nielsen. So what would Vertica have to offer Retail if legacy is that good?
In this webinar we’ll look at some of the strategic areas that are transforming retail, its operations, and its interaction with the ones who call the shots – the customers. The best use of Vertica in a retailer might not necessarily be to deploy it as a replacement for any of its siloed legacy systems, but rather to provide a means to explore, analyze and visualize insights derived from several of these legacy systems.
This is exactly what Zoined, a Vertica OEM partner, does in its analytics offering. Zoined Retail & Hospitality Analytics is a cloud based SaaS product, which out of the box contains 90-95% of the metrics and KPIs used by retailers and hospitality operators to track and monitor their businesses, giving them support for smarter decisions and actions in key areas such as assortment, cross-sell and staff performance optimization, all in real time.
Styrbjörn Torbacke, the MD of Zoined will describe how Vertica allows them to combine, correlate and present operational insights in real time to relevant staff in a retail environment.
