Author Information

Caroline Carruthers is Network Rail's first Chief Data Officer, Network Rail runs, maintains and develops Britain's rail infrastructure where information and data management is a critical capability within this highly complex environment. She has established a small core team operating with a larger matrix team drawing together Information Governance, Information Security, Data Protection, Freedom of Information, Records Management and Business Intelligence to deliver the vision of effective, accountable and sustainable management of information across Network Rail. She draws on experience from a varied background covering CIO/CTO roles through to running large scale complex change programmes. It was the recognition that `everything we do is fuelled by data and information' that drove Caroline down the CDO route and she regularly describes herself as a Data Cheerleader. Peter Jackson is Southern Water's first Head of Data. Previously he was the Pensions Regulator first Head of Data. The Pensions Regulator (TPR) is an executive non-departmental government body (DWP is sponsoring Dept) that regulates 47,000 work based pensions and 1.8 million employers in Automatic Enrolment. Peter has a background as a business analyst and code developer, so his skill is seated in a firm business and technical foundation. Peter is passionate about data and believes that delivering the `data narrative' to the business is as important as being technically credible.
