Why and How Chief Digital Officers Must Respond
to the Collaborative Economy, featuring Jeremiah Owyang

The CDO Summit: the premier event for digital & data leaders
Wednesday, April 29, 2015 
Thomson Reuters in New York City
Analysts agree that more Chief Digital Officers will be hired in 2015 than ever before, continuing the trend we predicted that the number of CDOs would double every year.

So many Chief Digital Officers are being hired for a reason—usually to deal with digital disruption.

And today a large part of that disruption is coming not from large competitors, but rather from the people formerly known as your customers:
  • It took Hilton Hotels 93 years to build an inventory of 600,000 rooms. Airbnb got there in just 4 years and now has 900,000 rooms around the globe, from everyday people, many of whom were previously customers;
  • BlaBlaCar now transports more than 2 million people every month, more than the number of people transported monthly by Eurostar;
Welcome to the Collaborative Economy: an economic model where commonly available technologies enable people to get what they need from each other.

This is where Jeremiah Owyang comes in. He’s the founder of Crowd Companies and is our featured speaker at the Chief Digital Officer (CDO) Summit on April 29, 2015, at Thomson Reuters in New York City sponsored by Capgemini.

Owyang has spent the last few years researching and even living in the Collaborative Economy. To get a sneak peak at some of his insights, click here.

Chief Digital Officers know that a long-term trend like this cannot be ignored. All previous CDO Summits have sold out of attendee tickets, weeks in advance.

Jeremiah Owyang, our featured speaker, is the Founder of Crowd Companies, which focuses on how large companies tap the collaborative economy, maker movement, and customer collaboration. Jeremiah will discuss the disruptive impact of the “Collaborative Economy” (Airbnb, Uber, Udacity, indiegogo, Bitcoin, etc) on incumbent organizations and business models, and how CDOs should respond.
