Are You Using Blockchain or Platforms?
Complete Our Survey And Get An Annual
CDO Club Platinum Membership For Just $95

As you may recall, last year the CDO Club and General Assembly collaborated with the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School on an academic research project about Chief Digital Officers.

The results of this report will be released at the upcoming UK CDO Summit on 28 March 2018.

We are excited to hear about the number of CDOs evaluating use cases for blockchain, using AI, ML, DL, and cognitive systems, and leveraging platforms for project/product management, communications, collaboration, measurement, and data insights/analysis.

To dig deeper into these findings, we now have a brief follow-up questionnaire for Chief Digital Officers, and a similar survey for Chief Data Officers, below, that should take just 5-10 minutes to complete.

As a “thank-you” to CDOs who complete the survey by the deadline below, we’ll give you an annual Platinum CDO Club membership for just $95. That’s a whopping $1,400 discount off the regular $1,495!

Please complete the survey by Tuesday January 23, 2018.
