When you wake up, the last thing you want to ask yourself is, “What did my data do last night?”

CDOs who find themselves asking that question can put a stop to it on March 19. IBM is bringing experts and leaders across data governance and integration to the annual Think conference. They can get answers about the latest solutions to ensure  enterprise data goes beyond compliance and is poised for insight-driven transformation. CDOs can make this the start of modernizing their analytics foundations to make sure their organizations transform at the speed of data.

What's in store for CDOs? Here are the highlights they definitely should take time to catch:
