Accenture/MIT CDO Survey - the results are in!
Earlier this year, Accenture partnered with MIT to co-create a CDO survey that was sent to the 2000+ Symposium members. We thank those who participated and are excited to share the results. According to this research, lack of talent to operationalize, cultural/adoption, and lack of long-term funding are the top 3 challenges faced by CDOs. The findings from this research support the immediate need for organizations to reinvent how data and AI initiatives are executed against business strategy results and ultimately build the case to move from AI pilots to enterprise-wide business transformation.
