Yes, the CDO could effectively ddrive strategy, but that is often a responsibility of the other C's and then it could become too many cooks in management.

Broadway, you mean if data is the core business? Nowadays just about every business is data dependent but in a support role, unless they derive income directly from data.

Unless your business depends on data, right?

My perception of why CDO is pinned a notch below is that the function it fulfills isis viewed more of a chief facilitator and not quite to par on the core business decisions level. In other words, he knows data but does he know business? I can see the traditional C-Suite quietly harboring the sentiment.

I agree that the position should drive startegy, but this needs to then be fit into the business context. There are costs and expected benefits that need to be fit into the overall budget. That would argue that maybe it should report to the CEO or COO.

@tomsg, I feel like I'm arriving late at my own party with comments to this blog. But to address your point ... for proponents of elevating the CDO, their argument is that the position should conceive of and drive strategy (which to me means they are driving the business). If you think they should merely implement strategy, then yes, they should report to another C-suiter (or shouldn't even be in the C-suite).

@Candidonick. Where would you place the CDO in the organization? What type of decision-making power should they have?

It might be interesting to poll CEOs and others in tip management to see what their reasoning might be for where they place CDOs in the organizational chart and why they limit or not their decision making abilitiy.

From what I've seen, a CDO's responsibilities have fallen under the CIO, or even the IT deptarment, which is laughably off course.

I have not seen it yet, but I have heard a couple of companies discussing it.
