      The popularization of data-driven approaches and the CDO profession, which was originally our goal, is very successful. The Award has gained fame and will continue to develop. Enterprises are increasingly working with data, and many projects are becoming cross-functional. It is quite obvious that they go to the level of the entire organization. And most importantly, there are results that CDOs are ready to share, and in many cases there really is something to share.
