At ViON, we have been evangelizing the concept of the "Data Driven Mission" - the idea that big data analytics, cloud and data management / protection should no longer be addressed as separate silos of IT, but as interdependent functions that enable organizations to maximize the effectiveness as their second most valuable asset: data. In case you're wondering, we believe that people are the most valuable asset to any organization. For any organization to derive value from their data through analytics, it needs to be secure, organized and accessible. To achieve this state, the right tools, technology, people and processes must be in place. While this function has traditionally rested with the CIO, increasingly we are seeing this responsibility fall under the Chief Data (Analytics) Officer (CDO/CDAO).
