Our Vision

The ultimate objective of the Institute for Chief Data Officers is to have a CDO in every organization worldwide. The iCDO is the first research institute dedicated to state-of-the art research. It is our goal to address complex societal changes that affect diverse areas such as finance and healthcare in the public and private sectors. In addition, the iCDO provides world-class training and education to empower a new generation of CDOs and others charged with leading enterprise strategy, governance, and management of information and data assets.

The Institute for Chief Data Officers is proud of its collaboration with the International Society of Chief Data Officers, as well as its contributions to the MIT Chief Data Officers and Information Quality Symposium. These collaborative efforts ensure shared experiences that empower, educate, and cultivate the free exchange of information, thereby strengthening the organizations that CDOs help lead.
