Executive Boardroom Session | Enterprise Data Officer ROI: Building & Sustaining a Business Case for Data

Success in any organization is dependent on the value of its assets, including data, especially in challenging economic and highly competitive conditions. Among many businesses cross-industry, the data program’s return on investment (ROI) is an increasing priority. This also implies the need for leadership to deliver data value. For today’s data leader to be successful, in any organization across any industry, the top “data executive” must be able to demonstrate that return on the investment. A lack of alignment of the data program to the benefits it brings will often lead to failure.

This executive boardroom session discuss the opportunities for having a defined Data ROI program, establishing internal “data companies” and considerations for data in the context of generative AI.
