Find Out Why Every Organization Must Become a “Digital Master”
At the NYC CDO Summit: April 29 2015 at Thomson Reuters

The CDO Summit: the premier event for digital & data leaders
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 
Thomson Reuters in New York City
According to Capgemini and MIT’s Center for Digital Business:
  • Since 2000, 52% of F500 companies have either gone bankrupt, been acquired, or ceased to exist
  • 48% of successful companies relied on hiring specialist digital talent in the wake of a disruption
Quite simply, the digital disruption affecting all businesses today has made the Chief Digital Officer and Chief Data Officer roles critical to their survival.

It’s no surprise that new CDO hires are doubling every year, and now total over 1,000, with Q1 2015 appointments at the White House for their first-ever Chief Digital Officer and Chief Data Scientist.

To help participants of the upcoming 3rd Annual NYC Chief Digital Officer Summit understand what it takes to lead digital transformation initiatives, the Summit will feature sessions from leaders of Capgemini Consulting:
  • Senior Vice President and Global Practice Leader Dr. Didier Bonnet will highlight findings from a multi-year research initiative with MIT that was showcased in his book “Leading Digital”.
  • Chief Digital Officer Fernando Alvarez will discuss how to unlock the potential of big data to tackle digital disruption. Alvarez has been honored as one of the 100 most influential U.S. Hispanic business leaders by Hispanic Business magazine, and has received the Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
  • Vice President, North America Practice Lead, Business Information Management Jeffrey T. Hunter will moderate a panel on “Finding a Needle in the Big Data Haystack” with Christine Hung, Executive Director, Data Science & Engineering at the New York Times; Amen Mashariki, Chief Analytics Officer at NYC Mayor’s Office; Haile Owusu, PhD, Chief Data Scientist at Mashable; and John Caldwell, SVP Market Dev & Bus Ops at Neustar.
  • Vice President, North America Practice Lead, Digital Customer Experience Tony Fross will moderate a panel covering the challenges of digital transformation.
