Most people dream of a white Christmas, but as we all know, things are different in data.

At our December CDO Hub event, Tim Carmichael stepped up to the open mic to perform his take on Bing Crosby’s classic, White Christmas – if you missed out on his original performance, you can experience the lyrical masterpiece in all its glory below.


I’m dreaming of the perfect outcome – 
Our Business Strategy demands,
When we harness data,
It’s not much later
Our profit margin will advance

I’m dreaming of opportunity
With business scared of being harmed
If data engineering
Is what they’re fearing
They need a CDO on demand

I’m dreaming of Data Quality
When Santa scrubs it all for free
And there’s no appearance
Of incoherence
Just trusted source data there for me

I’m dreaming of data protection
It’s like a condom for your files
Coz if you, like me,
Value privacy,
Then GDPR makes us smile.

I’m dreaming of data leadership,
This is the gang where we belong,
So sing along here with Cynozure
To our Christmas CDO Hub song!
