RDR Poll This Month: Are Chief Data Officers the Norm?

Reference data issues may be rising up the industry agenda as a result of risk management and regulatory considerations, but how much of a priority does your firm place on the data function. There has previously been a lot of talk about the increase in the number of chief data officers (CDOs) in the market, but how endemic are they?

Last month’s poll indicated that times are tough for data management teams out there, with the majority facing either a moratorium on hiring new staff or job cuts. Despite the increased market volatility and its knock on impact on data volumes, most data managers are being forced to make do with their current staffing resources. But are CDOs the casualties in these cost cutting exercises? Is data getting its rightful seat at the senior management table and, if not, what more can be done to ensure it does?

Let us know your views by clicking on the voting buttons on the right hand column and we’ll collate the results at the end of December – get voting!
