In this moment from Bob Evans’ executive interview at Workday Rising with Rubrik CIO and CDO Ajay Sabhlok, the two discuss the importance of data, technology, and collaboration in Ajay’s role as a CIO.
00:08 — Sometimes, to get good certified data, you need the right technology. Very frequently, I find that the data engineers escalate things to me that are impacted by upstream processes.
00:25 — And that’s my chief information officer (CIO) job. So, in my case, I helped set the priorities on both sides. But when these roles are apart, if you have two different roles and two different people, they have to be joined at the hip.
00:44 —They have to have interlock plans, partner vigorously, and help each other out. It’s similar to what I do with the chief information security officer (CISO). Our CISO and I are joined at the hip. Form that strong partnership and achieve a lot of things.
