From Big Data To Chief Of Data - The C-Suite Opens Up

Skytree, a vendor of business analytics software, commissioned a survey that found nearly one in five companies have opened up their C-suites to Chief Data Officers, and about one quarter have created data science departments.

The survey also found that even though many companies have data scientists, more than 60 per cent of them have a poor knowledge of advanced data analytics techniques.
