A record-breaking Q1 2020 for CDO/CAOs: How, Why, and What’s Next?

2019 was the best year on record for CDOs, CAOs, and the CDO Club, with Q1 2020 continuing last year’s frenetic pace. Join CDO Club founder David Mathison as he provides a CDO/CAO 2019 global re-cap; explains the record-breaking Q1 2020; explores how CDOs and CAOs are dealing with and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic; and offers some guidance and expectations on the rest of 2020 and beyond:

  • 01/20: Normally a ‘slow’ hiring month, January saw new CDO hires at Bayer, Chubb, Cognizant, McDonalds, Microsoft, Panera, and Sainsbury’s, among others
  • 02/20: NINE CDOs became CEO and/or Board Director in just one month, a record.
  • 03/20: TEN CDOs became CEO or Director in March 2020, breaking February’s record.
  • Q1/20: THIRTEEN CDOs joined the boards of publicly traded companies in the first quarter, more than twice ALL of 2019, when six CDOs became Directors. Females represented the majority of the quarter’s new board appointments, with nine of the thirteen placements.
  • Q2/20: Which companies and sectors are/are not currently hiring CDOs/CAOs, and why?
  • Q2/20: What impact is COVID-19 having on our community of digital and data leaders:
    How are Chief Digital Officers dealing with COVID-19?
    How are Chief Data and Analytics Officers responding to COVID-19?
  • 2H/20: Given the ‘new normal,’ what can CDOs/CAOs expect for 2020 and beyond?

The CDO Club (founded 2011) is the world’s first and largest community of C-suite digital, data, and analytics leaders.

Why Digital Transformation Matters Now More Than Ever

In the past couple of months, the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged organizations in ways never seen before; but more important is to seeing how some organizations leaned on their digital technology investments to overcome these challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic is underscoring the importance of being an organization that is resilient, agile, and connected among other traits. When organizations do the post mortem on their performance during the pandemic, they will uncover areas where their organization came up short. These shortcomings will define technology investment priorities for the coming years.

Join Meredith Whalen, IDC’s Chief Research Officer as she:

  • Show examples of organizations that have been able to lean on their digital investments in order to get through COVID-19.
  • Shares IDC’s latest outlook for tech spending.
  • Identifies what organizations need to focus on next in their digital initiatives.

IDC, the premier global provider of market intelligence and advisory services, is the Exclusive Research Partner to the CDO Club and Presenting Analyst Partner for the NYC CDO Summit.

Fireside Chat: Using Data to Navigate New Business Challenges

As we navigate through these uncertain times, data – from fundamental to unstructured – can be converged, combined and leveraged to give decision-makers an additional tool to address business challenges.

Join Janice Ellig, CEO of Ellig Group for a fireside chat interview with Martina Cheung, President of S&P Global Market Intelligence on how the market can utilize the shifting limitations and expectations of data to make informed decisions during this critical time:

  • The changing limitations of data and how S&P Global Market Intelligence is investing in new data capabilities.
  • The shifting market expectations for data and how the division is adapting and filling that demand.
  • S&P Global Market Intelligence’s approach to business continuity and utilizing its own data to get ahead of the COVID-19 pandemic.

S&P Global Market Intelligence is the division within S&P Global that provides data, essential insights, and powerful analytics to help navigate the financial markets.

We wanted to do something for our CDO community, since this pandemic has not only had an impact on your business strategies but also your personal lives.

We know that leaders with digital, data, or analytics backgrounds are being called on to deliver real-time results now, innovate towards a much different future, and to get their personal lives back to normal.

We are excited to see what positive improvements the future holds as a result of your efforts. We are truly living in unprecedented times.

In the meantime, we’d like to showcase some thoughts from your peers through this sneak peek to bring a bit of our CDO Summit to your living room, home office, wherever you are, to provide a preview for what is to come at the future live event.

We hope you enjoy it!
