Rocket Software’s Blueprint for Data Excellence: Unlocking Business Growth through Data Analytics, AI and Compliance

Chief data officers (CDOs) find themselves at the forefront of a data revolution, tasked with navigating the complexities of managing and leveraging data as a strategic asset for their organizations. As organizations in the era of AI increasingly depend on data for informed decision-making and gaining a competitive edge, the expectation for CDOs to validate the ROI from data initiatives to executive teams is at an all-time high.

At the heart of the CDO’s role is the strategic management of transactional data stored in systems of record such as mainframes. These systems often form the foundation of an organization’s data infrastructure, housing copious amounts of vital information essential for routine operations and strategic planning. Effective utilization of this data demands not only technical expertise but also a deep understanding of business goals and objectives.

Moreover, CDOs face the hurdles brought by the adoption of emerging technologies such as AI and machine learning (ML). While these technologies have the potential to derive valuable insights from data and drive innovation, they also introduce new complexities around data governance, security, and compliance. Balancing the need for innovation with the obligation to safeguard sensitive data and ensure regulatory compliance is a delicate but crucial task for CDOs in the current data-driven world.
