This episode features
  • A look at the rocky road ahead for CDOs
  • How to effectively scale data teams
  • What’s your crisis comfort food?
Key takeaways
  • Data found itself in the front, as a product; not as back door anymore.
  • Over-centralization (such as all the data engineers sitting in one silo responsible for everything) — it doesn’t scale.
  • Data leaders need to zoom out from just the technical deep view and become more business-oriented.
