Data and Data Analysts Take the Lead

Exasol’s new insight and business papers take a deep look into the role of the Chief Data Officer (CDO) and data management in today’s businesses.

In the insight paper, three industry experts give their opinions on why every organisation needs a CDO and why there is a current lack of them. From there they go into the path one can take to becoming a CDO, which includes data analysts taking measures to position themselves as tomorrow’s business leaders by using their skills in producing and making decisions based on data insights.

Additionally, Exasol also provide a business paper going into the more comprehensive subject of becoming truly data-driven with unparalleled data analytics performance.

About $1.3 trillion was spent on Digital Transformation last year and out of that amount it is estimated that $900 billion went to waste. Exasol lays out, in the business paper, how it can help organisations avoid situations like this, including: 

  • Taking steps to manage large data volumes and demand for better analytics, without adding pressure to legacy systems
  • Meeting the demand for predictive analytics at high volume – and preventing data bottlenecks
  • Making digital transformation painless.

These documents have been created to give guidance to those responsible for managing data and making key strategic decisions; for example, a Data Architect or Business Intelligence (BI) lead.
