“Moving from why, into how”


This year’s event focus will be centered around moving from content regarding why into topics answering how. From speaking with experts in these positions from Federal, State and Local Government agencies and organizations, we know you understand why, more now than ever being data-minded is crucial, however, one thing that remains unanswered: how!

CDAOI, Government 2019 will answer your how questions!

  • How do we implement a CDO?
  • How do we get executive buy-in?
  • How do we ensure the CDO doesn’t fail?
  • How do we show ROI when sometimes there isn’t any?
  • How do we continue to attract top data-minded talent?
  • How do we ensure Data Privacy?
  • How do we ensure a data-driven culture is at the heart of what each agency is doing?
