Kyle Evans is chief data and analytics officer for property information services firm CoreLogic's Australian operations, which formerly went by the name RP Data.
The company takes data from 600 sources and combines it to produce intelligence for firms with an interest in property.
Evans estimates he is one of 400 chief data officers (CDOs) worldwide. Though most find themselves in the US or UK, the number of CDOs in Australia is rising.
Most CDOs are presently found in banks, telco providers, insurance firms and government - all recognised as information-intensive industry sectors.
Evans himself is RP Data's second CDO; he has held the role over three years, and RP Data were the first in Australia to create a CDO role some seven years ago.
