We are excited to bring a wonderful speakers to you for our 3rd Quarter Meeting on Wednesday August 14, 2013. We will once again be at the OCLC Conference Center ( in Dublin with the event kicking off at 12:00 PM with registration and lunch. Our topic for this meeting:

Making the Case for CDO:Reflections on Chief Information Officers (CIOs), combined with decisive performance measurements, indicate that IT management has been asked to do a job that it cannot do well. Data are assets that deserve to be managed as professionally and aggressively as comparable organizational assets. Studies show that approximately 10% of organizations achieve a positive return on their investments in data. In the face of the accelerating “data explosion,” this leaves most organizations unprepared to leverage a non-degrading, strategic asset. The redress assigns this vital, lacking function to its rightful owner and driver, the business. While transformation may require some organizational discomfort, we are confident organizations that successfully create CDO will achieve improved organizational performance results that directly and obviously come from better organizational data management stemming from the leadership of the individual occupying the CDO position.
