Welcome back to our Chief Data Officer JOBS Update, through August 2016.
Our regular readers know from our original research that Chief DIGITAL Officer hires have been doubling every year. And that is startling enough (see our Chief DIGITAL Officer Update for August 2016 here).
Even more amazing is the tremendous growth of Chief DATA Officers.
Last year, we tracked a few hundred. This year, there are over ONE THOUSAND!
We’re not alone in reporting this – Gartner is showing the same growth rate, and estimates that 90% of large organizations will have a CDO by 2019.
Happy Labor Day, indeed!
In this month’s issue, we listed new Chief DATA Officer appointments for August; we tracked over 45 articles and hand-picked a DOZEN CDOs who made the news last month; and we posted FOUR more new open CDO positions on our CDO Career page (for a total of 27 open jobs), including jobs at the Department for Work and Pensions, The City of Louisville, The State of Illinois, and The City & County of San Francisco, among others.
Clearly, these are exciting times to be a leader in building a data-driven culture!
