Chief Digital Officers (CDOs), on an average, are 34 per cent more innovative and 32 per cent more disruptive than other C-level executives. However, less than five per cent of companies in the Middle East have a CDO (Source: PwC). It is therefore vital for companies to understand the role played by them in achieving digital transformation.
Businesses that want to transform their operations require a dedicated professional who would thrives as an agent of change. The CDO is often the executive tasked with envisioning and implementing this strategy.
With an aim to focus on strategies for digital transformation, UMS Conferences announces the 2nd edition of the CDO Conclave. The event is scheduled for 15 to 16 March, 2017 in Dubai, UAE.
The conclave will be a collaboration of industry experts, tech gurus, and will help organisations navigate their digital journey and think like a CDO. The event will enable them to gain a clear idea of how to formulate a digitisation plan and align it with current capabilities.
The CDO Conclave will include sessions by industry experts such as Matthew Horobin, Head of Digital, Dubai Airports, Ajay Rathi, CIO, Meeras Holdings, Bhanu Shekhar, Chief Digital Officer, GE,; Carlos Domingo, Chief Business & Innovation Officer, Du Telecom and David Parkinson, Head of Digital, EMEA, Nissan Motors, UK.
The event will also feature the Digital Excellence Awards, which honours visionaries from the region who recognised the changing dynamics and transformed their organisations.
