Re: Another chief, another seven digit salary
@asksqn: There's no doubt we'll see this position come to the forefront in the enterprise. The real question is: how much power will they have? What portions of the IT budget will they control? How will such a position affect the CIO, who in many cases is already fighting to reshape the IT organization into something that is valued by the enterprise? What human resources will be devoted to the DS department, at the expense of which other deparmtments? and will it be yet another place for silos to be created in the organization.
I don't have any answers yet, This trend will be worth watching closely.
