Decision making and Analytics
The shift from gut based decision making to analytics based decisions is a major cultural shift for  executives who do not have a full appreciation of how many of their business decisions are influenced by emotional factors or who don't regularly engaged in a disciplined rational analysis of their options.  There also needs to be an openess to what analytics reveal since the opportunity to include unstructured data will provide new insights that may be counter to their intuition. As well, the frequency of business decision may increase as the impacts of decisions or trends in the market  are revealed in real time versus monthly or quarterly reporting cycles. This may require exploring a new  balance between sticking with the plan and being responsive

Re: CDO vs. CIO
I share the idea of Susan, support a CDO can provide decision-making is also the complement of the current CIO IT, because this latter task should be focused on the research and implementation of new technologies to support the business, but the function is the CDO interpretración the fact that through technology can process better and faster. Definitely complement.

Re: CDO vs. CIO
I see one captain: the CIO. The CDO title won't survive. The CDO's role is clearly the modern CIO's role.

Re: CDO vs. CIO
Laurianne, 

"This CDO vs. CIO rivalry does not look to go away anytime soon."

Why do you see the CDO as rival of the CIO? The IT departments are getting overloaded these days with all the different technologies the enterprises are deploying. Having a data scientist's voice in the boardroom aliviates all the responsibility many CIOs have today.

More than rivals I believe they should be seen as two captains sailing the same huge boat, where only one captain in not enough anymore.

Security
Something had better change in security.  The current models have been out striped, outpaced and out flanked by mobile and the Internet of Things is only going to make it worse.  The is one of the pitfalls of consumer tech over enterprise tech.  Enterprise usually has their ducks in a  row before they deploy.  Consumer tech/tech du jour, races ahead of any consideration of procedure, process, or impact.  Improved security will help enhance privacy, but I fear that may be a lost cause.

CDO vs. CIO
This CDO vs. CIO rivalry does not look to go away anytime soon. Interesting that IBM sees it in the field as well. Readers, is your IT organization feeling power shift away from the CIO and to the CDO -- or is your company looking to add a CDO in 2014?

Re: Big data security?
One of the trend, i see around me is Smarter big data apps, we have been discussing about such kind of applications, but there is still no clarity on what exactly we expect these applications to do for us.

Big data security?
How is big data security different from regular old security?

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
