Are you a Chief Data Officer?

What is the Chief Data Officer Circle?

The Gartner CDO Circle is designed to address the needs of chief data officers (CDOs) and executive-level data and analytics leaders, including emerging roles such as chief analytics officer (CAO) and chief digital officer. This exclusive program provides an opportunity to network and collaborate with peers and learn current trends and best practices facilitated by members of Gartner’s Office of the CDO.


CDOs have a big job: You’re responsible for determining how to utilize information as a business asset. Gartner predicts that through 2019, 90% of large organizations will have hired a CDO, but only 50% will be considered a success. The Gartner CDO Circle addresses the unique challenges of this new and evolving role.
