What will the CDO do: Swim with the sharks or sleep with the fishes?

Tableau and Paxata are hosting an exclusive executive event and you are invited!

Please join technology innovators and information management leaders, Ameet Patel and Ben Haines, as they talk about why many organizations are hiring Chief Data Officers. In some cases, this person reports to the Chief Finance Officer or Chief Governance Officer. In all cases, it is a highly matrixed role, often with no budget. There is a need to be technical enough to interface with IT on data architectures and Business Intelligence stacks, well-versed in data compliance and governance, and savvy enough to represent the needs of the business. Ameet and Ben will share what they are seeing and open the discussion up for everyone to brainstorm what a 90-day success plan would look like for the new CDO. After the roundtable discussion you will be able to network with all attendees while watching the San Jose Sharks take on the LA Kings live at the SAP Center!

Please register now because space is limited.


  • 5:30pm - 7:00pm Roundtable discussion at The Grill on the Alley
