DataIQ is a membership based business with a mission of advancing the profession of data and analytics. They have been following the careers of chief data officers, chief analytics officers, data scientists, data governance experts and the leaders of key vendors and service providers and have put together a highly regarded ‘power list’ of the most influential data and analytics practitioners in UK organisations.
Inclusion in the DataIQ 100 list is a remarkable achievement for these individuals and we are delighted to see that some of the people who we admire most in the data industry appear in this year’s roll call, including some whom with we are honoured to work: Royal Mail have been leading the way for data and Business Intelligence (BI) now for a number of years; English Cricket Board (ECB) has attracted a number of organisations who have been keen to replicate or understand how ECB have reached their data successes.
The industry is really benefitting from the experience, understanding, leadership and approach of all of these data leaders.
Noticeably, with a balance to ensure vested interests are not dominating, the independent data management expert consultants add the value and understanding to those organisations needing a truly independent assessment of their options. A data management consultant recently saved one organisation over £4 million by approaching their data challenges differently.
So – well done to all for continuing to lead the way.
