MIT CDOIQ Symposium 2015 features Caserta Concepts’ president Joe Caserta and a forum for information quality education and thought-leadership
MIT’s Chief Data Officer & Information Quality Symposium (MITCDOIQ), led by data quality pioneer Dr. Richard Wang, is one of the world’s leading forums dedicated to enterprise data quality in business and industry. This year’s event celebrated the “Chief Data Officer” (CDO) with speaker presentations and panel discussions focused on recognizing the critical and strategic importance of enterprise data quality and management in public and private sector organizations.
The 9th Annual MIT CDOIQ Symposium took place on the MIT Campus in Cambridge, MA and featured a presentation from Caserta Concepts president Joe Caserta. Joe’s session, “The Evolution of Today’s Big Data Environment: Innovation with Unstructured Data for Strategic Outcomes,” struck a chord with the 200 CDO leaders in attendance from a variety of business sectors in industry, government and academia.
“The interest, energy and commitment to the power of data analytics was impressive,” commented Joe Caserta. “The CDOs in attendance have big data projects percolating, are seeking answers to complex technology questions and, recognizing the overall importance of maximizing data value, are ready to implement solutions today.”
Along with a keynote speech by Michael Stonebraker, adjunct professor at MIT known for his research and development of relational database systems, panel discussions included CDOs and analytics practice leaders from Fidelity Investments, Cigna, TD Ameritrade and Seattle Children’s Hospital. In his session, Joe led the audience through two client success stories illustrating how to achieve high data quality and assure accurate, complete, consistent and reliable data results to support a business’ bottom line.
“We are excited about the value our speakers brought to the event, encouraging a level of dialog, interchange and feedback rarely seen,” commented Robert Lutton, MIT CDOIQ Symposium Co-Chair. “Our speaker partners were able to engage in meaningful discussions with attendees, many of whom are now on their way to solve real business issues.”
