The CDO Summit addresses the challenges and opportunities arising from AI, big data, the cloud, digital disruption, and social and mobile media.
When we think of digital transformation, we often think about how tech impacts different industries — how Uber shook up the taxi marketplace and Airbnb transformed the hotel industry. But the truth is digital transformation itself is also disrupting the entire way companies structure their businesses and their executive roles, even wiping out some traditional careers.
Enter the CDO role! Sometimes referred to as a Chief Digital Officer and sometimes deciphered as a Chief Data Officer. Whether you are concerned with one or the other, these roles are concerned with corporate transformation in digital and data areas, respectively – and they are both challenging the traditional CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) and CIO (Chief Information Officer) roles.
