Chief Digital Officers - Business Transformers of the Digital Era

01-29-2018 03:14 PM CET | IT, New Media & Software

Press release from: UMS Conferences

Rapid technological developments have essentially transformed businesses, creating opportunities and threats for both, new and mature firms. Organisations are increasingly looking to make sure that their business strategies are underpinned by the right technologies. It comes as no surprise then that senior industry executives have been calling for the creation of a new C-level role – namely Chief Digital Officer (CDO) – a digital transformation evangelist who would take responsibility for all things digital. While their enthusiasm to embrace a digital agenda should be commended, it opens up an interesting debate.
The chief digital officer is set to become a key position in business, according to the latest research from analyst Gartner. As per third annual Gartner chief data officer survey, the number of organisations implementing an office of the CDO has increased by 47%, compared with 23% fully implemented in 2016. There has been a steady increase in the number of CDOs since 2016 – 57% in 2017 compared with 50% in 2016.
There is a need for organizations to address the change in business scenarios, dynamic business demands and innovate ways to quickly cater to these changing needs. Pervasive connectivity, cheaper and more powerful computing power, and variations in the behavior of digitally connected customers are shaping a new digital era.
Given this global phenomenon of digital transformation and how a CDO is instrumental to this wave, UMS Conferences has been organizing the CDO Conclave in the Middle East for the past 2 years which has received unparalleled response from various industry stakeholders. The 3rd edition of CDO Conclave will be held on 7th and 8th of March, 2018 in Dubai, UAE. With this as the driver UMS Conferences extends the CDO Conclave series to the African Continent with the 4th edition happening Johannesburg, South Africa on the 7th and 8th May 2018.
The summit aims at providing a holistic view of how digitization impacts each department and process in an organization and how the CDO aligns C-level executives for a common purpose. This year’s key speakers include Durdana Achakzai, CDO, Telenor; Paulina Klotzbucher, Chief Digital Officer, Travelstart; Martin Grunewald, Chief Payments Officer (Acting), BankservAfrica; Jaco Coetzee, CIO, FNB Fiduciary South Africa; Channan Sawhney, Global Head- Digital Marketing, Tata Global Beverages; Jason Piesl, Head Point of Sale, IS Executive & Senior Solutions Architect, Pick n Pay; Priya Thakoor, Head-Digital Strategy & Commercialization, ABSA and many more.
