Data governance and lock-in: A glimspe into the mind of today’s CIO

The role of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) has always had many challenges, but with the explosion of Big Data, it is difficult to determine roles and responsibilities of data governance. The question often becomes: Is it a business decision or an IT decision?

Getting to the heart of the matter, Tim Crawford, CIO and strategic advisor at AVOA, joined Dave Vellante (@dvellante) and Paul Gillin (@pgillin), cohosts of theCUBE, from the SiliconANGLE Media team, during the HPE Big Data Conference held in Boston, MA, to discuss the role and responsibilities of the CIO.

Crawford began the conversation talking about what’s on the mind of today’s CIO.

“It’s the same things as the last 18 months, how do we up-level the conversation?” he said. He explained that on one end of the spectrum it is about engaging the customer, and on the other end of the spectrum it’s about driving the things that lead up to your business vision.

The group discussed the issue of data compliance and the challenges for the CIO to protect data when it comes to regulatory or legal concerns. Crawford pointed out that there is a need to start having these hard provocative conversations.

“Let’s stop dancing around the problem and get right to it and move on,” he said.
