CDOs Driving Data Maturity

 The path to AI is long, and even when organizations want to leverage its analysis, they're not always at a level of data maturity where they are able to. CDOs drive data maturity and can guide an organization towards customized and strategic deployment of limited technical resources towards a more data-driven business strategy. This white paper explores the challenges facing today's CDOs and how to overcome them.

We collaborated with Caroline Carruthers, CDO of Carruthers & Jackson and co-author of The Chief Data Officer Playbook, to explore these insights.
