re: Will CDO Steal CIO's Leadership Role?
So this theory proposes the CMO and CDO become the CEO's important new best friends and the CIO is left keeping the lights on? I agree Chief Data Officer may be a title on the rise -- for good reason -- but must that position be superior to the CIO? I don't see why.
The many CIOs already driving line-of-business innovation are not going anywhere. Perhaps the CDO and CIO work together for the CEO, much as the CIO and CSO do. And speaking of CSOs, CDOs can't give CEOs the whole range of necessary security expertise. What do you think, IT leaders? Chime in.
