The CDO View is a series of webinars from the perspective of a successful CDO, giving insights into how technology can be utilized to deliver exceptional performance at large organizations.
Join us on Wednesday 13th April at 9:00 CT / 16:00 CET.
This series of three webinars is hosted by Simon Asplen-Taylor, previously CDO at Tesco, Bupa and Rank Group, founder of DataTick and regular fixture in Data IQ’s 100 Most Influential People in Data’s annual list of who's who in the data world.
In the previous webinar, we talked about quick wins. One of the criteria of a good quick win is that it can be built on or repeated at a later date. That later date has now arrived.
It’s counter-intuitive to think that by starting small you can achieve scale quicker, but this is indeed the case because when you limit your early scope you learn quickly and show tangible results. If you achieve something and it works, you can turn that into widespread board support and funding for a more ambitious project based on the same principles.
If you’ve not experienced that yet, it feels good. Very good.
Join Simon in conversation with Ramesh Pannakal, Customer Success Manager at WhereScape, as they discuss how Simon has successfully scaled the quick wins he's made in his position of interim CDO at large organisations.

Simon has also written a book, called Data and Analytics Strategy for Business, to be published on. June 3rd.
For many organizations data is a by-product, but for the smarter ones it is the heartbeat of their business. Most businesses have a wealth of data buried in their systems which, if used effectively, could increase revenue, reduce costs and risk and improve customer satisfaction and employee experience.
Beginning with how to choose projects which reflect your organization's goals and how to make the business case for investing in data, this book then takes the reader through the five 'waves' of organizational data maturity. It takes the reader from getting started on the data journey with some quick wins, to how data can help your business become a leading innovator which systematically outperforms competitors.
Data and Analytics Strategy for Business outlines how to build consistent, high-quality sources of data which will create business value and explores how automation, AI and machine learning can improve performance and decision making. Filled with real-world examples and case studies, this book is a stage-by-stage guide to designing and implementing a results-driven data strategy.
