CDO Matters Ep. 38 | It’s Crunch Time for CDOs with Mark Stouse

November 30, 2023

Episode Overview:

In this 38th episode of the CDO Matters Podcast, Malcolm interviews Mark Stouse, the Founder and CEO of Proof Analytics.  An accomplished business leader with decades of experience in leading data science initiatives, Mark shares his perspectives on the growing frustration that many organizations are experiencing because of an inability to realize significant benefits from investments in data management and data science.

The risks of CDOs saying they aren’t ‘ready’ to provide business value from AI and data science are real and increasingly unwelcome from companies looking for more immediate returns from their data teams.  This is producing an immediate need for CDOs to be unabashedly lean, with an unrelenting focus on a very limited number of specific business needs and outcomes.
