Innovation and growth. Those are the first two responses given when IBM speaks to executives about their priorities in dealing with data. Organizations are facing challenges in managing the scope and large-scale transformations that they need to deal with rapid data expansion. This new reality raises the question: Don‘t data assets, like any other corporate asset, need an executive owner?

Gartner research estimates that by 2015, 25 percent of large global organizations will have appointed chief data officers. To discuss this interesting and emerging role of the chief data officer (CDO), we spoke with three experts who have interviewed and seen many chief data officers in action. Over the past several months, our three guests have conducted face-to-face interviews and have leveraged results from other studies conducted by IBM Institute for Business Value to develop a new paper about chief data officers.
