For the fifth time IRM UK is hosting a CDO Executive Forum. Over the last two years we have formed a great group that collectively shares ideas that help define the CDO role and set direction on the effective embedding of CDO’s into an organisation. We will be presenting the key findings and proposals of our previous meetings during a session at the conference on Tuesday.

Given that most participants are seasoned CDO’s or have relevant experience on the subject we have an ideal setting for going to a level that really helps you deliver value as a CDO. This your chance to become part of this community of CDO’s and share your knowledge and insight to collaboratively advance the best practices.

During the November Forum we want to further focus on the value delivery, architectural patterns and collaboration model with the other “Data Roles” If you would like to address other topics there is certainly room for other items to be discussed.

Jan Henderyckx will introduce the following topics:

  • “Bi-modal, Four-modal, innovation,” … what’s the best value delivery model?
  • What are the responsibilities of the CDO? First line for all things data?
  • Architectural patterns for data value creation, do we need blockchain and AI?
