CDOTrends is Asia’s only content portal dedicated to the needs of the Chief Digital Officer. It shares the latest news, highlights best practices, examines emerging trends and provides an invaluable resource for CDOs and other Business Leaders engaged with a company’s digital & data strategy. It is also structured to evolve with CDOs, as their own job scopes and responsibilities expand in the digital era.

CDOTrends delivers insight and analysis on key topics related to an enterprise’s future by focusing on six core areas including Digital Strategy, AI & Machine Learning, Customer Experience Management, Digital Privacy, Analytics and our peer inspired leadership insights and case studies on CDOUniversity.

CDOTrends is also pragmatic. We recognize that the CDO title might vary slightly or is an additional responsibility of another executive like a CIO, COO, CMO or other senior title, but the job focus remains the same: define a firm’s digital strategy, execute it across the organization and build a digitally and data optimized enterprise. Our portal, newsletter and related events are designed to empower CDOs and those tasked with digital responsibilities, stay updated on the latest strategies, innovative technologies and best practices, provide a one-stop shop for related news, whitepapers, research and case studies and expand career horizons by offering leadership insights from CDO peers.

For marketers, CDOTrends is the most direct way to engage with CDOs and those empowered with the digital vision and strategy for their enterprise in Asia. The combination of our website, e-newsletter, research, conferences and customized events creates an engaged community of these hard to reach and identify executives.
