Session Overview

Sustainability has never been more important to our collective future. Whether we look at environmental or social sustainability, the challenges we face affect everyone’s personal and professional lives. Marieke will share some of her experiences and her passion for driving environmental and social sustainability and provide her insights into how individuals and teams can make a lasting and positive impact.

There are many levers that can help solve some of societies toughest challenges. Digital technologies are among the most important tools available to help society make progress. Innovation offers a great opportunity to drive sustainable growth. Sustainability is top of mind for most organisations in our industry, but there is still a gap between ambitions and what is actually done. We as organisation, teams and individuals have an opportunity and an obligation to close this gap. Closing this gap can often feel daunting. But every one of us can have a positive impact on an environmental and social level, in whatever we do. That’s the new reality, our new frontier and we can all make a difference.

Marieke will use her own experience and invite a colleague to join the discussion to discuss how we as individuals can have a lasting, positive impact on organisations, regardless of one’s title or job grade.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Innovation offers a great opportunity to drive sustainable growth.
  • We all have an opportunity to make a positive impact, regardless of title or job grade
  • There are concrete things I can do to make a difference personally and professionally

Although the world is rapidly changing, the big radical change is still to come. Current work structures evolved from outdated, low-tech, exploitative systems, and simply do not meet the needs of today’s workplaces nor take us where we want to go. The coming change is radical, yet is a return to a more natural and humane way of working together to produce greatness. Let’s tap into our collective intelligence, let’s build and co-create, instead of exploit. And it all starts with self-compassion.

Does it still feel like no matter what you and your organisation do to be more inclusive and to benefit more from diversity, nothing really changes? The change we are dreaming about is RADICAL, and it requires adequate actions/solutions. In this fully interactive and experiential workshop, you will learn and explore the new possibilities that are accessible when you communicate and connect with others from the place of self-compassion. It’s transformative, fun and your name will be spoken a lot.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • The change you are longing for starts in you. This technique makes it easy not to forget about it
  • The way you communicate and connect with others has an impact on the whole team dynamic. With this self-compassion technique you can reduce stress, performance anxiety, and burnouts, making your team/s holistically healthier
  • The technique to stay connected with your team/s and navigate with ease through the rapid changes

This session is for you if…

  • You are a leader, manager or HR-professional looking for better tools to support your people
  • You are a change maker, an advocate for equity and diversity looking to create greater impact
  • You want to transform your business and stay ahead of the competition
  • You believe in the workplace that is built on talents, respecting boundaries instead of exploiting individuals

The business landscape has shifted dramatically in the last 3 years. In a world where nothing is the same, has the moment come for a new way to think about IT and how it enables business outcomes? During this session, Christine will explore a future in which the ability to choreograph technology will be more important than our ability to code it.

Much of the last few years has been a fight for survival. Amidst the need to accelerate delivery and cut costs, we haven’t dared to let ourselves dream. As the time comes to think about rebuilding, we have a real opportunity to do things differently. And to take the lead in defining and developing areas of IT that were immature or simply didn’t exist before.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • What changes if we start to think about IT as a product instead of as a service? With a much greater acceptance amongst businesses of standardised platforms, where can we truly add value?
  • How can we spark our own creativity and start looking outside the traditional spaces to find people with imagination and curiosity who can challenge and expand our thinking? By accessing a more diverse pool of talent and respecting real world experience as much as technical certifications, we can explore the real power of technology to do more for both the businesses we work with and for society as a whole
  • How do we open a more fruitful dialogue with our peers and business leaders about how IT can contribute to longer-term business success and potentially bridge the perceived digital skills gap in a different way?

This session is for you if…you like to ask, ‘What would happen if…?’ This is a rare opportunity to revisit what drove you to pursue a career in technology in the first place and come together with your peers to think about how we recapture that magic.

If your business has an appetite for change and a desire to do things differently on a modern infrastructure, it doesn’t have to be the nightmare you might have conjured up in your head. But, equally, transforming a supportive function into a business enabler that drives the company forward and helps you meet the increasing expectations of your customers should not be a pipe dream.

But in a digital world where every business is challenged to accelerate the pace of digital innovation, businesses need something that is hardware and software agnostic. Software has become the backbone of every company. It requires a modern infrastructure that is more flexible and agile when engineers want to change things.

By moving outdated assets to a modern infrastructure of their choice, businesses can finally free themselves from the spaghetti architecture. Of course, business enablement is not a journey you should rush and proper plan and base is a must.

Enterprises, regardless of their size, make constant efforts to speed up processes as a critical driver to their market delivery. Today, most of these enterprises strive to replace their outdated integration tools with more efficient technology. Having that in mind, employing a semi-automated migration process to a new tool is a must-have asset made possible with our accelerators for automated migration projects to the new integration tool that they bought or plan to buy.

In this session you’ll discuss the key benefits of utilising migration accelerators by explaining their architecture and the approach to the methodology of the migration process.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • How to approach an integration migration project
  • Explore migration accelerators as a boost of any migration project
  • Explore the business values behind all this (speed, cost, reduced dev effort)

This session is for you if…

  • You have an integration system that you want to replace
  • You are afraid of taking a migration project under your umbrella
  • You want to go away from legacy
  • You are planning or have a ongoing digital transformation journey
  • You want to learn more about automation and integration

We all use maps in our cars, on our apps and more. Imagine what would be possible if map developers had access to the highest-quality open data? Learn how, through an open-data foundation called Overture and its fully integrated solution TomTom Maps Platform, is setting the new industry standard for mapmaking.

Maps are everywhere. We see them when we get in our car, or when we find a new place to eat. We also experience their impact in the cities we visit, the roads we drive down to avoid traffic and more. With the ever-increasing demand, the geolocation industry is on a steep growth path over the next decade. To keep up with this progress, we need to step up our map quality.

The issue is that there are so many map options out there and none of them are interoperable. You may like the search functionality from one map provider but prefer the real-time traffic information from another. Combining the two is a headache, if it’s even possible.

The dream is to have an open-data ecosystem that brings together the best features of different maps for developers to use. This is Overture. Formed by TomTom, AWS, Meta, Microsoft and ESRI, the Overture Maps Foundation is a non-profit open map data project that ensures mapmaking is easy, collaborative and of the highest quality.

But every customer has specific needs. The TomTom Maps Platform will meet these. Forming an open base map built from Overture data, the platform will build layers upon this, enabling customization and configurability of maps so any solution is possible.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • What is Overture and how TomTom, Meta, AWS, Microsoft and ESRI are changing the mapmaking game
  • How developers can simplify the work needed to build location-based solutions by using open data and platforms like TomTom’s
  • Learn how TomTom addressed the challenges it faced in developing its Maps Platform

The future of work is now and automation has become a critical component of the enterprise digital transformation strategies. All organisations are placing ‘automation first’ initiatives on their lists of strategic imperatives. Why not get a head start into this new innovation era and future-proof your workforce or yourself?

We are at the start of a new era, the Automation Citizen Developers era. This turning point came as a natural consequence due to limited resources in IT or data science which led to limited scope and pace for Intelligent Automation opportunities. Gartner is predicting that by 2025 the number of citizen developers across large enterprises will be at least four times higher than the professional developers.

This workshop will take a deep dive into key components to consider to run across your organisation a successful Citizen Development program aligned to your automation objectives and to your business strategy: innovation as a culture, change management, digital literacy, process improvement, technology stack, governance model and overall organisation.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Come away with a Citizen Automation Governance model focused on people, process and technology
  • A Master plan for up-skilling yourself or your employees or to reduce the learning curve and time-to-value
  • An Automation First Mindset roadmap to shrink digital skills gap, scale with confidence and maximize success

How secure are your organisation’s data and systems? Given the increasing number of cyber threats circulating today, it’s essential that you strengthen your security posture to more effectively guard against ransomware, data breaches, and other types of unwanted events.

Information security standards and best practices are all headed toward the same goal: solid and scalable systems that protect IT assets and privacy. The GDPR require you to implement measures to ensure a level of personal data security that’s “appropriate”, taking into account the risks presented by the data processing activities you are involved in.

An important step that will lead to the growing importance of privacy on an international level is about to take place this year. The International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) will adopt ISO 31700 on privacy by design, a new worldwide privacy standard for consumer goods and services. The new standard provides guidelines for organisations to take into account a consumer’s privacy throughout the design, development and the rest of the product lifecycle.

There is no question then that an organisation with ISO 27001 or both ISO 27001/27701 certifications certainly has a distinct advantage when complying with the GDPR. The drawback is that many ISO 27001/27701 implementation projects take time, money, blood, sweat and tears. As with many aspects of GDPR compliance, it is ultimately a decision as to whether the long-term benefits can justify the sometimes arduous process of getting the certification based on the context and data processed by the organisation.

The Why:

  • How secure are your organisation’s data and systems? Given the increasing number of cyber threats circulating today, it’s essential that you strengthen your security posture to more effectively guard against ransomware, data breaches, and other types of unwanted events
  • How can international standards support your organisation’s data protection compliance requirements?
  • How can we prepare practical audit checklists according to the best global standards and regulations?

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Supporting your compliance obligations, such as ISO standards and GDPR
  • Improving your information security and data protection posture and raising awareness throughout your organisation
  • Reducing your security risks and operational costs and encouraging continuous improvement
  • Boost your credibility abroad, as the ISO standard is internationally known

This session is for you if… you are a CTO, DPO, CISO, Information Security manager, Cyber Security manager, Data Protection manager, Privacy manager, GRC manager, IT Auditor, Risk Practioner.

  • Katrien Jacobs

    Accenture

The foundations of our new reality are the path to taking action. Mounting challenges on the global stage are forcing enterprises to reorient their business objectives and imagine how they can best contribute to solving these collective problems. Some of today’s problems might have been considered unsolvable before – but as the convergence of atoms and bits continues to grow, the bounds of possibility expand.

Over the years, enterprises and individuals have taken many steps to create their presence in the digital space, consciously moving back and forth between physical reality and the digital ones they created. The time has come to change that. The next wave of business transformation will erase the demarcation between those worlds to fuse them into a new shared reality– one where our physical and digital lives are one and the same. In this talk we’ll explore the concept of this new shared reality and four emerging technology trends that identify steps enterprises will need to take to build and thrive in this new world.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • You will learn how Digital Identity is quietly becoming the key to enterprises’ technology aspirations, and efforts to reimagine it are underway, not just for people but for all things.
  • You will learn why Data Transparency will become your most precious resource. Data ecosystems are being reshaped by radical transparency as enterprises leverage their troves of data to offer unprecedented insight into their business.
  • You will learn about Generalising AI: the radical edges and possibilities of intelligence. Foundation models are driving one of the biggest step changes in AI history. Now enterprise leaders can shift from building their own AI to building with AI.
  • You will learn about our Forever Frontier: the big bang of computing and science. After decades of hyperfocus on digital technology, science is leaping back to the top of enterprises’ agendas.

This session is for you if… you want to learn about the key technology trends for 2023 including digital identity, generative AI, data, and more.

As an industry, we are always looking for the latest and greatest to lower cost and risk and increase velocity. For every new threat, vulnerability, technology challenge, there is a new tool. But new tools mean higher cost, more complexity, and ultimately, more attack vectors. So how do we address these issues?

People and processes are the key. We’ll address how to build scalable teams which will simultaneously improve your IT landscape and your cyber security posture.

Cyber security is an increasingly important topic, but we also know that the speed of iteration is key to the productivity of a team. The way we are looking at both of these things isn’t working, and we need to take a more holistic approach by zooming out and looking at more variables.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • The unpredictability of humans can be an asset, especially when threat modelling
  • The misperception of risk can be mitigated by diversity

Although the world is rapidly changing, the big radical change is still to come. Current work structures evolved from outdated, low-tech, exploitative systems, and simply do not meet the needs of today’s workplaces nor take us where we want to go. The coming change is radical, yet is a return to a more natural and humane way of working together to produce greatness. Let’s tap into our collective intelligence, let’s build and co-create, instead of exploit. And it all starts with self-compassion.

Does it still feel like no matter what you and your organisation do to be more inclusive and to benefit more from diversity, nothing really changes? The change we are dreaming about is RADICAL, and it requires adequate actions/solutions. In this fully interactive and experiential workshop, you will learn and explore the new possibilities that are accessible when you communicate and connect with others from the place of self-compassion. It’s transformative, fun and your name will be spoken a lot.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • The change you are longing for starts in you. This technique makes it easy not to forget about it
  • The way you communicate and connect with others has an impact on the whole team dynamic. With this self-compassion technique you can reduce stress, performance anxiety, and burnouts, making your team/s holistically healthier
  • The technique to stay connected with your team/s and navigate with ease through the rapid changes

We all have been through company reorganisations, probably more than once. Some are understandable and produce good outcomes, others aren’t, creating insecurities, lack of confidence in leadership, unnecessary changes, and even more complex paths of communication or decision-making. What is the difference, then?

Team-first thinking and the importance of well-defined boundaries to balance cognitive load within the teams is an important matter to consider: it directly fosters teams’ independence and minimising the overhead of communication, enhancing faster decision-making and increasing the quality and throughput of delivery.

Is there a well-proven way of scaling or changing the current landscape of company organisations? In this session we’ll explore Conway’s Law and the importance of team landscape and interactions, supported by an actual study case in the industry, and how well-designed teams charts can improve independence, autonomy, and motivation of the teams, leading to a faster and better rate and quality of delivery.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • How to scale organisations based on the interactions patterns
  • Exploring the importance of a clear architectural strategy to a clear team topology landscape

Raising awareness of the interconnection among technology, inclusivity, and UX research is essential for designing products and services. As technological tools have become more accessible to users of all genders, it has become increasingly important to integrate UX research into the development of new digital products and services. In order to be inclusive, UX researchers must systematically consider diverse audiences, taking into account factors such as gender, technology literacy, cultural background, origin, and accessibility.

Today, we can really see how technological evolution has changed the life of researchers (from carrying heavy equipment such as video cameras, tripods or running sessions in labs full of cables to now conducting sessions remotely on any devices with end-users from all over the world). Although the evolution of technology has made it easier to conduct UX research, this can also lead to a lack of context in the data collected. As a result, there is a need for future tools (such as AI or virtual reality) to provide deeper insights into user experiences.

Session Key Takeaways:

  • Technology has improved and can facilitate inclusivity in product development.
  • There is a growing awareness of the importance of inclusivity in creating products and services.
  • UX research is crucial in promoting inclusivity in product development.
