  • CeRebration: CIO of the Year 2005-2018

  • Last year we had the most ‘funcky’ opening ever with Candy Dulfer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=10&v=aJ1nakyt-K4 And as any year the past 14 years we will surprise and inspire you during the Grand Opening of the 15th edition CIODAY. This year……. No! We will not tell you. We did not do this the past 14 years, so also not this year. We will not ‘mind-fuck’ you with some half clues nor put you on the wrong leg so to speak. Just (a)wait and see until Tuesday, November 26 at 09:15!


  • On behalf of the Diamond Partners, John Kitchingman will present a recap of the pre-conference held on 25 November.

  • How do we make sure the intelligence gained from innovation is created and managed ethically? CTO of BCG GAMMA, Andrea Gallego, takes the CIODAY stage to share how the team creates more ethical, inclusive, and comprehensive AI solutions.



  • To understand their drive, mission and vision the six candidates for CIO of the Year 2019 will share their thoughts with you in some inspirational and motivational speeches.

  • In 2017 we introduced the so called Tech Heroes. In this part of the program we asked start-ups and scale-ups to share their vision and How they did it/make it happen. There are also numerous great transformational stories to share that resonate within the majority of the delegates (CIOs/IT Directors from the top1000 enterprises). Therefor this year, 2019, we will expand the programme with the so called Digital Masters. Together with the Start- and Scale-ups the Digital Masters will complete the setup for the Tech Heroes.

    Tech Heroes are business leaders of young fast-growing companies that bring about a major change in the way we do business and the way we work. They have a strong technology driven approach and are able to disrupt traditional industries. These industry heroes will present their case on how they were able to make innovative new discoveries and products through technology. See some Tech Heroes of last years:
    Lightyear
    Picnic
    Swapfiets

    Digital Masters are inspiring leaders who have achieved a high degree of maturity in digitizing their business. Not in the form of new, promising startups, but rather of the more established companies that have shown that they are able to adapt quickly to our changing world through technology. These companies are an example for our industry, society and BV Netherlands. They work inspiringly towards the large group of traditional organizations helping the Netherlands to make a big impact in its international competitive position.

  • HRH Bernhard van Oranje-Nassau will present the award ceremony of the CIO of the Year 2019 Award.


  • A few years ago, Philips radically opted for a switch to technological innovations for healthcare, a sector on the eve of revolutionary developments. At Philips, the journey to healthcare technologies is accompanied by a rigorous digital transformation. The ambition of corporate IT is even to exceed the speed of that development. The cloud plays a central role in this. More than 100 data centers were migrated to the cloud within a year. In this session Hans Koolen will disprove a number of myths about the cloud. In addition, he questions in detail various important points of interest around "people and processes", such as the choice of integration partner and the question of whether there is sufficient knowledge available.

  • So many organizations lack a true culture of innovation. Developing great ideas and turning them into real-life propositions is often a responsibility of the happy few. Or worse, ideas simply stay ideas. How to turn innovation into day-to-day business? CIOs have an ideal position to foster a culture where every employee is involved in innovation and where experimenting and making mistakes is dealt with in the right manner. In this session we will discuss the road to a culture of innovation, but also the best methods to innovate and the availability of technology to bring testing to a higher level. After this breakfast session you will understand how to accelerate your digital initiatives.

  • Ecosystems are a hot topic. Apparently they are seen as the holy grail of cooperation between customer and suppliers. The reality is different: there are conflicts of interest, margins are always under pressure, products and services are offered by multiple partners in the ecosystem ... Some ecosystems flourish, among other things due to robust conflict management systems. How do you develop such an ecosystem? It is important to map out an ecosystem well in advance and to look at the risk of conflicts. Openness in the tendering phase is needed, puts conflicts of interest on the agenda before contracting. Sourcing expert Eric Foppen, previous winner of a Tommie (The Outsource Manager Award) at ICT Media, will present a number of statements during this discussion table. Based on this, you get a good picture of the do's and dont's when developing an ecosystem.

  • Many organizations experience the pressure of the market: it must be faster, more customer-oriented and more agile. Whether the response is to opt for bi-modal IT or not: this has the necessary consequences for the IT organization. IT is becoming increasingly intertwined with business processes; hiding in the "run" is no longer possible. The question is how the IT organization can be modernized. It starts at the top, at the MT. But the design and above all getting the processes working is essential. Pieter Schoehuijs currently busy with a carve-out of Glencore Agriculture from the Glencore group - and the associated repositioning of its IT organization - explains a number of issues during this session, to formulate a number of good practices through dialogue.

  • Innovation does not start with hip terms or embracing hyped technology. Directors and companies are advised to start the renewal agenda close to themselves and focus on business outcome instead of chasing technology hypes. They often rely on start-ups and scale-ups for that in order to leverage the top-notch technologies and newest insights these newbies bring to the playing field. However, working together with start-ups is not always easy. Not for the corporate, not for the start-up or scale-up itself. It’s like elephants dancing with mice. Miguel van Bodegom and Marc de Beijer will shed some light on how to build a successful collaboration between start-ups and corporates. As consultant and interim innovation leader, Miguel van Bodegom knows how to successfully onboard innovation in corporate environments. As general director of a successful scale-up in the energy market, Marc de Beijer knows how to be relevant for energy giants. This session will be moderated by Jelmer Letterie of VodafoneZiggo.

  • Many organizations make it: they want to bring a product or service on the market, but this does not work or fails because the underlying processes - Agile, DevOps, service management - are not in order. During this session Jan Willem will use an innovative board game to show how you map processes and determine which ones matter. It also discusses how you define the right roles to support the processes, and which competencies are required for this. The result is an insightful GAP analysis with pragmatic follow-up steps.

  • This is today’s greatest management issue, and one that gives many a board member, professional and quality assurance manager sleepless nights. Basing himself on his latest book, Strategy = Execution, Jacques Pijl reveals the main success factors of modern strategy execution and innovation. His speaking sessions are highly interactive and practice-based.

    Some of the problems tackled include:
    What are the pitfalls and dilemmas in strategy implementation? How much does failure cost?
    What makes or breaks a good strategy? How does your organization’s execution capacity measure up?
    What is the difference between Improvement, Rejuvenation and (Digital) Disruption
    Portfolio: What initiatives should you prioritize? How can you execute these largely in your primary processes
    Old versus new: How do you organize both side by side?
    Strategy activation: How do you get people to engage and commit?

  • How do you successfully make advanced analytics part of your organization's DNA? The start is the agenda of the Board of Directors. Then the real work begins: ensuring that the business adopts and starts to apply analytics. Maarten Buikhuisen presents his experiences at Heineken, where the value of a certain data set is determined in close cooperation with the business in three sprints of two weeks each. A good criterion for success: does the business want to make time for this? An interactive session about, experimenting, training and getting acquainted.

  • Developing speed based on the limitations of a legacy environment is a major challenge for many CIOs. How to make the transition from the old world to all new technological possibilities? Robert van Riessen has ideas about it, which he would like to test during the discussion table on CIODAY. As Global Head of IT, Van Riessen leads an important digital transformation at the Arnhem-based chemical company Teijin Aramid, which is the world market leader in aramid solutions. That change must prepare the organization for further global growth. Where many CIOs work on their digital agenda by looking at new opportunities together with the business, he wants to do so from the OT: linking the business processes to the (big) data from the manufacturing domain. "During a discussion table on CIODAY, I like to start a dialogue with other technology managers who want or perhaps have already realized that."

  • Leaders in the digital transformation are increasingly confronted with the delaying effect of cyber security, with DevOps teams who find building inherently safe systems a difficult and time-consuming exercise. The challenge for CIOs, CDOs and CISOs lies in balancing the security of the digital assets on the one hand and securely accelerating the digital transformation on the other. Dennis de Geus, Cyber ​​Security Practice Lead at Capgemini discusses an innovative bimodal approach to cyber security in this round table. A suit that answers questions such as: "How can security contribute to a shorter time to market for new digital services?" And "How can security ensure that the business can adopt new cloud technologies faster?".

  • With more than 600 agreements, the Netherlands BV tried to counteract the negative consequences of climate change. Together citizens and companies play an important role in this. But how do you get people moving? Upscaling Aurum from Breukelen has developed technology for both the consumer and the business market to gain more insight into energy consumption. With the help of IoT, it can be generated in real time, for central heating, heat pump and district heating. In the latter case, the solution can be used for automatic invoicing, among other things. On the basis of this real-time data, energy companies can also improve their predictions, thereby purchasing energy effectively and learning to save energy. Marc de Beijer, General Director at Aurum, will be happy to explain how he does this during this session.

  • Most large companies are busy constructing and implementing a data driven culture. When asked, a majority of executives indicate that they are not yet successful in this. What is your definition of a data driven culture? What do you do to realize that? In this interactive session, Tableau will address a number of issues in this area: what does it mean to be a data-driven organization? What do you mean by self-service analytics? Is governance a blockade for employees to do more with data (or can it help with the adoption of the data-driven culture)? Where is the balance between self-service analytics and responsible data governance? On the basis of these and other relevant issues, we map out the conditions for a true data culture.

  • Many companies invest heavily in new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain. Yet investments alone are not a guarantee of success. In practice, there is a large gap between the potential value of technological developments and the actual benefits realized. This certainly applies to companies that deploy new technologies within the traditional IT structure and corporate culture, and that do not have a strategy to exploit and scale up innovation opportunities across the organization. This group of companies misses out on huge sales opportunities.

  • Many larger organizations notice that their market position is no longer self-evident. They feel the need to become more agile and faster. Customer-oriented innovation is key. However, the step from strategy to execution is huge, especially when it comes to digital agility. The IT department often has its hands full keeping data centers and legacy applications up and running, while the need for innovation and speed makes it possible to find a solution in the public cloud. During this session, Anton Rutten will explain how Rabobank creates digital agility and brings both worlds together.

  • Working with artificial intelligence is essentially different from the rollout of any application. It requires both technological know-how and knowledge in the field of legislation and regulations. Within various companies and sectors, this leads to caution when embracing, and makes training in use necessary. Because what can, may and must all be done? During the discussion table at CIODAY, Francois Klerx, the regional Deputy Director of Clifford Chance, goes in search of "good" and "best practices" of colleagues, in particular with regard to embracing and rolling out AI. “Where are the benefits? How do we fly it? Where do we pack the low-hanging fruit? How do we take the first small steps to be able to scale up? ”Are the questions from Klerx, who further states that CIOs should not all have to invent the wheel for themselves with regard to AI.
