Chief Analytics Officer Europe 2017

Chief Analytics Officer Europe was the premier event in 2017 for CAOs and senior analytics professionals, providing top-level strategic advice and discussion. CAO Europe brought the senior analytics community together to discuss the most critical data and analytics challenges faced by their organisations and the wider industry as a whole.

As businesses expand their executive teams with new C-level titles and place data at the centre of their strategic journey, the desire to change that data in to a strategic asset is growing – enter the Chief Analytics Officer.  It is the CAO’s role to create real business value through data analytics and promote the company's data-driven culture and it is predicted that within 5 years the Chief Analytics Officer will be one of the most strategic roles within any organisation. At CAO Europe, we brought together CAOs and analytics thought leaders to address challenges and solutions specific to their unique and evolving role.

Over 120 CAOs and VP-Level analytics executives from all over Europe met in London to examine the role of the CAO in more detail than ever before and discuss strategies for deriving real actionable and strategic benefits through analytics.


Key Themes for CAO Europe 2017 were:

  • THE DATA DRIVEN C-SUITE – The Role. Evaluating data analytics investment, prominence and acceptance in the boardroom.
  • CULTURE and LEADERSHIP – The Human Element. Defining, fostering and embedding a culture of data analytics and insight based decision making. Democratising analytics to foster insight and co-operation throughout the organisation.
  • THE INTELLIGENT ENTERPRISE – The Defining Factor. Driving innovation, agility and business value. Monetising data to deliver strategic worth to the business.
