Invitation Only

Discussion Theme:

A recent survey of directors, CEOs, and senior executives found that digital transformation (DT) risk is their #1 concern in 2019. Yet 70% of all DT initiatives do not reach their goals. Of the $1.3 trillion that was spent on DT last year, it was estimated that $900 billion went to waste.

Why do some Digital Transformation efforts succeed and others fail?

Fundamentally, it is because organizations fail to understand the mission critical role that data plays as part of a digital transformation strategy.

The end goal of creating a digital enterprise is to create a strategy where your data is your foundation to drive business outcomes.

This invitation-only dinner event will highlight advice and insight around the latest trends in using data to drive successful digital transformation outcomes.

Dinner & Discussion Takeaways Include:

  • Does your organization have an actionable definition of Digital Transformation? If not, how do you arrive at one?
  • What are the main reasons that Digital Transformations fail in regard to strategic data management? What can be done to prevent or correct these scenarios?
  • What do best practice data management programs in support of Digital Transformation look like? What are the initial steps to aligning with these best practices?

Leading the Discussion

Guiding the conversation will be Bill O’Kane, who recently joined Profisee as VP & MDM Strategist after eight years as a VP Analyst for Gartner leading their Data Governance and Master Data Management practice.
