CIODAY is the annual network event for digital decision-makers in business, government, and everything in between. Not necessarily about the latest tech, this event brings together the community of CIOs, CDOs, and CTOs to share ideas, use cases, and best practices in an informal but luxurious setting. This year’s edition is all about resilience, digital progress and digital strength. Our choice of nominees for the CIO of the Year Award and the new Tech Hero Award reflects this.

CIODAY2022

Dutch Design

Less is more… Minimalistic, robust, flexible, resilient, workable, ethical, aesthetic… A selection of the underlying principles of Dutch Design, which has proved to be of great social and economic value over the past century. The Dutch approach to creating and designing is renowned. It is a way of looking at problems differently, and thus arriving at different, often better solutions.

Modern technology has always played a distinctive role in this approach. That is why CIODAY2022 is all about what makes our country unique and will continue to make it: Dutch Design in the dynamic context of technology, economy and society. Because we can be proud of it. And because we believe that the above mentioned design principles are part of the solutions that are needed to keep our country livable.

New research reveals risk factors to business success in post-pandemic world

Being future-ready has never been a simple endeavor. But given the tumultuous events and seismic change of the past two years, being prepared for what’s to come is more difficult—and more critical—than ever. At Cognizant, we believe modernizing for the future is the number one priority for any business leader today. And that means learning to operate as if everything will be in a constant state of flux: reading the early warning signs, predicting what’s ahead, and acting in time to emerge with relevancy.

It’s not for nothing that the Star Trek starship was named the Enterprise. Most plainly, the word means a “project” or “undertaking,” but it also conjures up adventure-seeking and the intrepid curiosity that guides us to and through unknown territories. And it’s not for nothing that we’ve long referred to many of our commercial customers as “enterprises.” Looking back on the past couple of years, we find that label, with all its cosmic Trekkie connotations, especially fitting: our manufacturing customers have been tasked to boldly go where no one has gone before.
