Top 5 Ways to Track Digital Transformation
with Walmart, Humana, City of Boston, BBVA, and Centric Digital

The CDO Summit is the premier event for digital & data leaders:
Day 1: Chief DIGITAL Officer Summit on November 16, 2016
Day 2: Chief DATA Officer Summit on November 17, 2016
Washington D.C., United States

“One of the things that people used to ask me when I arrived was: should we grow or should we be profitable?” said Anne Myong, Chief Financial Officer at Walmart eCommerce.

“And I thought, is that a trick question?”

There’s nothing harder than being honest with yourself…

And that goes double for Chief Digital Officers, who not only have to track their own progress, but also justify their digital transformation efforts in the context of what their organization is doing as a whole.

At the “Driving and Measuring Digital Transformation” panel at the NYC CDO Summit, presented by Centric Digital and hosted by Thomson Reuters on April 27, 2016, we assembled a group of digital leaders to discuss how they track transformation across sectors like retail, government, banking, and healthcare.

Sponsored by Centric Digital and moderated by Brian Dearth, Chief Strategy Officer at Centric Digital, the video of the panel is available in its entirety at CDOClub.com now!

Panelists included:

  • Lauren Lockwood: Chief Digital Officer at City of Boston
  • Jeff Reid: EVP Digital Center of Excellence at Humana
  • Jeff Dennes: Former SEVP – Business Development & Digital Transformation at BBVA Compass
  • Anne Myong: Chief Financial Officer at Walmart eCommerce
  • Brian Dearth (moderator): Chief Strategy Officer at Centric Digital

“Congratulations and thanks to David Mathison for spotting the need for community and collaboration in the growing Chief Digital Officer space, and for having the wherewithal, network, and organizational talent to put together such a top-notch event in its inaugural year. Next year’s summit should be even more of a must-do for anyone working digital at senior levels in all kinds of businesses.”

Teddy Goff: Chief Digital Strategist for the Hillary Rodham Clinton 2016 US Presidential Campaign. Former Digital Director for President Barack Obama, 2008 and 2012

“David, here’s a handy C^3 test for conference value: Did I learn at least three new perspectives? Check. Did I meet at least three interesting people? Check. Did I take back at least three relevant pieces of news I can use? Check. Flying colors for the Chief Digital Officer Summit 2013! Thank you so much, and yes, I’d be very pleased to participate next year!”

– Perry Hewitt: Former Chief Digital Officer at Harvard University
