  • When faced with increasing disruption, how do you reinvent your business model? Most firms fail by doing the very things that have made them successful in the past. Kodak, Polaroid, Blockbuster, and Nokia are all examples of this. But precisely where did they go wrong? It was not that these firms did not invest in disruptive technologies, or that they were poorly managed, complacent, or fraudulent. They clearly suffered from business model fixation; they focused only on short-term financial performance, missed early signs of disruption, and were in thrall to their existing customers. In this presentation some important insights are provided into how firms can cope with disruption or even reinvent their business model in such a way that they themselves become disruptors.

  • Suppose Team Sunweb could predict the winners of grand tours? KPMG and Team Sunweb believe that, with the data partnership, we can come pretty close. Over the next three years, Team Sunweb and KPMG will work together to gain even more insight into cycling. We’ll do this by collecting and analyzing cycling data. A lot of data. However, this doesn’t just require a change in the technology we’re using, but also a change in the way we work, how we respond to such data.

  • In 2013, we added the CEO-panel to the programme, 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, 2018, 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.

    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.

  • Using special techniques, such as machine learning, KPMG and Team Sunweb are looking for connections, trends and developments in data. The goal is to turn cold data into real insights. Insights that can benefit the riders and the whole team. The analysis we can perform using a data platform provides a very detailed picture of the performance of the individual riders and how the cyclists and their specific qualities are developing over time. But the results of the analysis can also be used immediately to make decisions that will influence the course of the race, such as unexpected changes in the weather or competitor performance. The KPMG approach is focused on progress, by bringing technology and people together.

  • Every company thinks about innovation. How to get ahead in a digitized marketplace? Software is rather sooner than later an essential ingredient in the answer. To get innovation going many organizations embrace model driven low-code application development. Is this new a form of custom code or the paradigm to accelerate application development.

  • Best of breed or a single vendor that can "mostly" do it all? That is a decision that many companies are grappling with. A single vendor certainly reduces management complexity, can negotiate on economies of scale, and ideally will have a lot invested in your success. The flip side, they know the pain of change is high and there is little competition to drive innovation. A best of breed cloud strategy can offer some significant advantages, it promotes agility, can be deployed at scale, and your vendors are driven to innovate and provide consistent excellence. How do you ensure that your strategy isn't just good for today, but it truly setting your business up for the future?

  • For digital transformation, co-creation is the way to realize long-term strategic goals. Success is to a large degree dependent on the partner you choose. An enterprise in the energy sector had to make such an important choice. This partner had to name strategic possibilities of digitization and to be able to materialize them in a new digital customer engagement platform, roll out these concepts and inspire the organization to take part in this new digital future. You want to substantiate this essential choice with facts at an early stage. But during realization determine as well in a fact-based way that the visionary future becomes a reality.

  • We will examine the most important characteristics of human behaviour in relation to cyber security and integrity from a scientific psychological perspective. Behaviour is more than awareness: Lessons from psychology Psychology, the science of behaviour, can be used to help us understand how behaviour works. This is essential when taking measures aimed at preventing cyber security incidents, and also when it comes to fraud prevention. Simply ‘broadcasting’ what is expected of employees and raising their awareness is not enough. To truly make a difference, it is important to identify the causes of certain types of behaviour. In this group discussion, we will explain how to do this, as well as how these insights can be translated into concrete preventive measures.

  • No matter what goals a company has, it is key that IT supports all departments and processes. With all new technologies most companies use mixed environments of both cloud and on-premise solutions so the old-fashioned way of scheduling isn’t suitable anymore and even real-time data-processing doesn’t replace scheduling in the background. During this discussion table Menno Heesbeen from Redwood moderates the discussion about scheduling and we dare you by saying that scheduling is not dead but essential for a company to survive the competition.

  • Every revolution has created more jobs then it destroyed. But it is not trivial that those whose jobs are destroyed are able to retrain themselves for the new jobs: An historic example: when cars arrived, the blacksmith’s did not all transition to become great car mechanics. We are at the verge of a big digital revolution in the workplace. Technologies as AI/ML/Bots and RPA are all maturing and will allow us to rethink every business process and redesign them from the ground up. But what is the impact on the human aspect of work? How can companies prepare for this difficult transition?

  • True digital transformation means a different approach to how you measure effectiveness. SLAs are no longer relevant: it is the end-customer experience that counts. Ultimately, digital transformation is all about shifting the focus, also from the entire internal organization, from technically measurable KPIs to full focus on the end customer. For a digital acceleration, the IT organization usually needs to be substantially adapted, IT delivery and sourcing significantly improved and regulatory constraints better integrated into the approach. Chris Yap shares insights from URENCO on the big how to.

  • Like many industries, the HR sector is experiencing rapid digital change. Randstad is the global leader and helping people to have relevant work in all phases of their lives is our passion. Randstad is in a better position than ever before to add real value for clients and candidates in a world where digital is the new normal. Over the past 2 years, we learned how to transform in a way that fits our culture. Technology and innovation are important but interestingly not the biggest hurdles. Getting the business to really use the solutions structurally and generate real business benefits is our biggest focus. While working on the business priorities, we are gradually implementing new management techniques like design thinking, agile and lean startup across all business functions. Like any culture change program, this takes time and lot of energy but eventually we believe it will make the difference between success or failure. During the round table CDO/CIO Rene Steenvoorden will share his recent experiences, successes, and problems faced with realising digital transformation in the global Randstad business. As the invited CIO’s around the table you will be asked to share your input, thoughts and brainstorm on new digital solutions and how implement them successfully in your organisation.

  • The Automated Decision Intelligence Architecture (ADIA) is an enterprise approach to data management and data analysis developed by Pretty Good Knowledge and the approach enables organisations to ensure their investments in data are meaningful, measurable and scalable. The goal of the approach to is to adopt standard data management models enabling the business to manage business outcomes by steering the data acquisition process in coordination with desired business objectives, whether the data is resident in the storage infrastructure of the enterprise or imported from outside sources. When viewed from a knowledge perspective, the ADIA data management cycle becomes increasingly more effective as the knowledge about data, data management business rules, and the increasing automation of data management processes mature throughout the organisation’s workflow over time. ADIA embraces key principles like data integrity, privacy, and security by design. “By design” means that a “positive control” system ensuring data integrity, privacy, and security is not an after-thought, rather that it provides an in-depth capability to manage these kinds of sensitive data wherever and whenever they appear within the organisation, whether at rest or in motion, from data acquisition through downstream data enrichment and data correlation processes, and wherever data is shared with partner organisations.
