Dow wins 2024 CIO 100 Award for Integrated Data Hub

Foundry’s CIO 100 Award recognizes enterprise excellence and innovation in IT

Midland, Mich. — March 19, 2024 — Dow (NYSE: DOW) received a 2024 CIO 100 award for the Company’s Integrated Data Hub. This prestigious award celebrates organizations worldwide that demonstrate exceptional strategic and operational excellence in IT. This marks the third consecutive year that Dow has received this recognition.

"The Integrated Data Hub represents a significant milestone in our ongoing journey to harness data as a strategic asset,” said Melanie Kalmar, corporate vice president, chief information officer and chief digital officer. “Our approach to Data & Analytics encompasses not only technology design and implementation, but also a cultural shift centered around data access and value creation."

The Integrated Data Hub serves as a vital component of Dow’s Enterprise Data & Analytics strategy and aims to provide several key benefits, including centralized data access, empowered teams, data ownership and stewardship, state-of-the-art tooling, and streamlined analytics workflows. This innovative platform, which utilizes automated metadata consumption and domain-oriented data landing zones, ensures accountability for all data in the environment and offers advanced tools to simplify working with data.

A crucial aspect of the Integrated Data Hub is empowering data owners and stewards with the tools necessary to manage their data effectively. Through the data marketplace, they can control access to their data, manage business glossary terms, and maintain visibility into data usage.

To support the Integrated Data Hub, there is a wide-ranging Data & Analytics Literacy program that represents all parts of the enterprise and gives Dow employees the skills to read, write, and communicate with data in context. It ensures that all the data the company produces is reliable and high-quality for analytics and decision-making purposes.

Kalmar added: “I’m incredibly proud of the team, who did a tremendous job building the Integrated Data Hub. Implementing both technical and cultural changes in a company with over 125 years of history is no easy feat. However, the successful creation and utilization of the Integrated Data Hub demonstrates our ability to adapt and embrace today’s opportunities. As we celebrate this achievement, we remain committed to continuous innovation, driving transformative outcomes, and unlocking new possibilities through data-driven excellence.”

Executives from the winning companies will be recognized at the CIO 100 Symposium & Awards.

“The CIO 100 Symposium & Awards continues a tradition of over 25 years of the highest quality content for IT leaders and their teams. In addition to celebrating 100 organizations during the dinner and awards ceremony, I am thrilled to feature many of these IT leaders as speakers,” stated Elizabeth Cutler, content director, CIO 100 Symposium & Awards. “The award-winning teams share a passion for excellence, a customer-centric mindset, and a drive to invest in technologies that elevate business value."
