Why The Chief Data Officer Is The Hottest Job Of The 21st Century
In 2012, Harvard Business Review boldly named the Data Scientist “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century.”
In 2013, reporters at CNBC gave the same nod to data analysts, saying it was one of the most sought-after positions.
Even U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker came out praising the Chief Data Officer (CDO), saying, “There is so much more potential to tap – and more data to be unleashed – that will strengthen industry and expand economic opportunity for millions of Americans. … Put simply, our Chief Data Officer will hold the key to unlocking more of our government data.”
