By 2019, Gartner predicts that 90% of large organizations will have hired a chief data officer; of these, only 50% will be hailed a success, due to a lack of focus on business-relevant outcome improvement. The success of a data office is highly dependent on the organizational structure that is put in place.

The rest mentions no business outcomes at all, or list qualitative goals such as "better decision making"- "more agility" or "coming to the one version of the truth", not the best way to justify your position as a chief data officer, or data and analytics leader. As information becomes a recognized business asset and as digital business models are based on the creation and exchange of data in a smart way, we can and must come to more tangible metrics.

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3305318 Gartner Webinars The CDO's First 100 Days New chief data offers (CDOs) must act quickly and decisively when they take up their posts or risk failure.

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 12:00:00 EDT 3305319 Gartner Webinars Helping Midmarket IT Leaders Change the Conversation From Cost to Value EDT: 11:00 a.m. | PDT: 8:00 a.m. | GMT: 15:00 Many midmarket IT leaders report that they are often required to reduce IT spending. With CFOs measuring IT against a single metric - "IT spending as a % of revenue," - there is a heavy focus on reducing IT's costs with little focus on increasing its contribution to the business. This has led to many midmarket IT leaders being unable to move the conversation from cost to value. The result is usually the business failing to innovate from within and utilising IT to optimise business performance. In this webinar we introduce the Gartner Cost Value Matrix as a new way to measure IT's contribution to the business. The Cost Value Matrix focuses on how IT has contributed to improving business metrics, rather than its record on cost cutting, a much improved and fairer way of assessing a CIO's performance.
