Welcome back to our Chief Data Officer JOBS Update, through September 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.
Be sure to check out last week’s post “What? Chief Data Officers Surpass Chief Digital Officers!” that includes CDO Club founder David Mathison’s recap of the launch of IBM’s DataFirst platform, O’Reilly’s Strata+Hadoop World conference, and AdWeek.
Each of these events expose, from slightly different angles, why big data has gained traction in the marketplace, with no signs of slowing down.
In this month’s issue, we listed new Chief DATA Officer appointments for September; we tracked over 35 articles and hand-picked more than a DOZEN CDOs who made the news last month; and we posted TWO more new open CDO positions on our CDO Career page (for a total of 29 open jobs), including jobs at the Department for Work and Pensions, The Health & Human Services Agency (HHSA), 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!
