Companies generate more and more data. The management, structuring, integration and analysis of all this data to turn it into essential information for decision making requires a new professional profile, the Chief Data Officer (CDO).
According Watch&Actthis data expert will be one of the most sought-after professionals in 2022 and beyond, because, sooner or later, all companies will need a professional specialized in these skills.
“Although originally it was a position in the IT area that reported to the Chief Information Officer (CIO), this is evolving into a transversal position, and the current trend is for it to report to the CEO, given its involvement in the different areas of the company and their participation in defining the business strategy and in decision-making”explains Javier García, CEO of Watch&Act.
