Tech hotshots: The rise of the chief data officer

“Wes Hunt is unambiguous about his objective as the first chief data officer at Nationwide Mutual Insurance: ‘Our goal,’ he says, ‘is to treat data as the asset it is and drive value from that.’ Hunt is one of a growing number of CDOs operating in U.S. and globally who are carving out a new domain that focuses squarely on data governance and management. According to Hunt, other CDOs, consultants and analysts, the mission of the chief data officer is to bring order to the plethora of data sources within an organization, tap the multiple analytics opportunities that exist, and develop a strategic vision around those opportunities.”
