New Format

This year will see the IBM CDO Summit, Fall take on a new, exciting format, designed specifically with you in mind.

This year’s summit will kick-off with a welcome address and exclusive networking lunch on September 22. Then, across the afternoon, you will be able to choose from a number of Confab Groups, broken into 3 specific tracks based on the IBM CDO Look Book: Data Integrator, Business Optimizer and Market Innovator.

You simply select the session you wish to join on the day and are free to roam across all 3 tracks should you wish. The day concludes with our networking Drinks Reception, allowing you to unwind and connect with your peers in an informal environment.

On September 23, we begin with our bi-annual Data Divas networking breakfast, giving women and men alike the chance to discuss the position of women in data and the opportunities available to the next generation of data leaders.

Then, equipped with your ideas and takeaways from yesterday’s interactive sessions, you will enjoy a morning of plenary sessions in the form of on-stage panel debates. Here you can ask more questions and share your own experiences on the topics at hand.

Finally, we conclude at lunchtime with a takeaway/buffet lunch, allowing you to leave with plenty of time for the weekend ahead.
