Citizant and the Institute for Chief Data Officers (iCDO) are partnering to bring the 2-day CDO-1 Certificate Program to the Washington, DC area on April 25-26, 2019. The program is designed for enterprise data leaders at Federal agencies who aspire to fill a Chief Data Officer or Operational Data Officer role.
The CDO-1 Certificate Program is led by Dr. Richard Wang, director of the Chief Data Officer/Information Quality program at MIT. The CDO-1 program, previously taught at the Univ. of Arkansas Little Rock, is now being offered for the first time in the Capital Region. The CDO-1 program was originally scheduled for Feb. 28, 2019, but was postponed due to the partial government shutdown.
CDO-1 explains the definition and landscape of the CDO’s role and responsibilities. It introduces attendees to big data technologies, as well as data policy, strategy, governance, analytics, and integration. Attendees get hands-on experience with tools CDOs can deploy immediately to help drive business outcomes. Program presenters include Dr. Wang and other data leaders from both government and industry organizations, including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Department of Defense, PwC, SAP, and Citizant.
Registration for the CDO-1 course is open, with early-bird and government discounts on the $1,195 course fee available until March 8. The 2-day course will be held in the Westfields Office Park in Chantilly, Va. Full program information is available at https://ctznt.it/cdo1dc. Class size is limited to ensure a collaborative learning environment.
