It’s been a significant year already for the rise of federal chief data officers and the government’s push toward better data governance. In January, the president signed the Open Government Data Act, which requires federal agencies to appoint CDOs.

He joined Federal Drive with Tom Temin to explain what the latest moves mean for data in government, and for CDOs.
