Agenda


Coming Soon

The CDO Executive Summit agendas are driven by the mission-critical priorities identified among the community. Each agenda is uniquely crafted ‘by CDOs, for CDOs,’ and will be available closer to the gathering. All topics and sessions will be inspired by the following themes.

Expanding Digital Business & Accelerating Value Creation

The universal demand for digital business growth has increased tenfold, driving the need for CDOs to be hyper-focused on delivering value. Chief Data Officers are intentionally organizing and building ecosystems that shorten the space between time to value.

Influencing Culture & Collaboration with Governance

Creating a data-first culture continues to challenge CDOs, as they look to drive data democratization and accessibility. CDOs are building collaborative environments with data at the core, empowered by agile governance and real-time insights.

Orchestrating Change & Empowering Real-time Decisions

There are elements of business, economics and society that are constantly changing, but the CDO is orchestrating meaningful change across enterprises by fueling the decisions with quality data.

We look forward to seeing you at an upcoming in-person gathering
