7th NYC CDO Summit, Sponsored by Globant, Returns to Columbia University on May 8, 2019

NEW YORK, April 30, 2019. /PRNewswire/ -- Organizers for the 7th annual NYC CDO Summit, sponsored by Globant, a digitally native global technology services company, today announced speakers and the agenda for the event on May 8, 2019, in the Roone Arledge auditorium at Columbia University in New York City.

The CDO Summit addresses the challenges and opportunities arising from big data, the cloud, digital disruption, social media, and mobile media.

"This year, our summit is more important than ever, as Chief Digital Officers and Chief Data Officers ("CDOs") are being hired to help organizations across all sectors survive digital disruption.

From 11:30am-12:00pmEST, Emiliano Horcada, Global Head of Design and Digital Transformation Partner at Globant, will deliver a keynote titled: "Driving Tangible Transformation - how to transition your organization's digital aspirations into action." 

Emiliano will introduce a key framework that can be used to assess organizational fitness, and show how to use that assessment to build a roadmap to achieve digital maturity.

From 13:30-14:15 EST, Alejandro Scannapieco, EVP & General Manager of US East Region at Globant, will moderate a panel called "Driving transformation at scale: How digital leaders are helping their organizations stay relevant," with the following panelists:
