The CDO Summit, hosted by Thomson Reuters and Capgemini, offers an opportunity to collaborate, network and engage with senior digital executives across industries.

Keynote Title:
Using Identity to Empower Digital Business

Identity is a fundamental requirement to digital growth. Businesses and organizations cannot properly take advantage of mobile, cloud or Internet of Things (IoT) technologies without a scalable and repeatable identity strategy. Without it, they have no way to engage with customers in a meaningful way. By implementing a common identity platform company-wide, business units can respond faster and more collaboratively to changing customer needs. Customer data and behavior is no longer siloed, but transparent across the lines of business, and provides a richer, seamless customer experience. Ellis will outline the essentials of customer-focused digital identity and how it helps businesses engage with their customers.

Mike Ellis serves as CEO and president of ForgeRock. He has more than 30 years of experience in the software and technology industries, and has held senior executive roles at SAP, i2 Technologies, Oracle and Apple. Ellis has also provided consulting expertise to some of the largest software firms and venture-funded startups to define and drive new growth and execution opportunities.

April 29, 2015 from 1 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET
