We’ve just wrapped up the London CDO Summit and the ForgeRock Identity Summit, and they were a huge success!

Hundreds of attendees joined us to talk all things digital transformation, identity, and IoT.

Now the CDO Summit is heading to Amsterdam where we’re continuing our partnership with ForgeRock to bring you two great days of digital business focused sessions and networking.

On Wednesday 4 November, the CDO Summit will cover big data, digital transformation, and social and mobile media. Mike Ellis, CEO of ForgeRock, will be a keynote speaker, discussing the role of identity in enabling engaging, consumer-focused, digital initiatives.

The CDO Summit also features keynotes from Joris Merks-Benjaminsen: Head of Digital Transformation at Google; Sean Cornwell: Chief Digital Officer at Travelex; David Mathison: CEO of the CDO Club; and Patrick Hoffstetter: Chief Digital Officer at Renault.

Then, on Thursday 5 November, the ForgeRock Identity Summit explores how identity asset management is the foundation for transforming digital business. Delegates will learn how identity is the key to creating the secure, personalized digital experiences that customers and citizens expect.

The ForgeRock Identity Summit is headlined by keynotes from Accenture’s Floris Van Den Dool, Gartner’s Ant Allan, digital identity thought leader David Birch, and ForgeRock CEO Mike Ellis.

The Identity Summit will also feature presentations from leading digital organizations like Zalando and Swisscom.
