interactive CXO workshops

Innovation, digital transformation, agility, speed... the entire wish list of organizations is based on one foundation: the cloud. Leveraging cloud-based applications for business transformation is often seen as a no-brainer – who doesn't use cloud technology? Nevertheless, cloud appears to be difficult in practice.

With regard to its use, many organizations are far from where they want to be. Sometimes the effort is limited to small innovations and scaling up is not within reach. Or the processes and culture are not ready for digital transformation, a data driven approach or moving vital data to the cloud. Or legacy gets in the way of cloud ambitions.

Our society is moving toward a platform era and an unprecedented digital acceleration. That's why CIO Magazine organizes a series of workshops with the continued adoption of the cloud as a focal point. This cloud journey highlights four important aspects that play a role in C-level decision making: business, people, organization (change management) and technology.

A study will be launched among Dutch CxOs shortly, in which we will attempt to pinpoint the "pain". The four workshops that follow will then focus on the "gain". The output of the workshops, presentations and interviews by CIO Magazine will lead to a white paper, distributed among the participants.

Wednesday 27 May 2020 | 11:30 - 14:00

To guarantee the quality of the workshops, we can count on contributions from the program’s ambassadors – C-level executives of Enexis Groep, Garantibank, PostNL, Philips, Rabobank and Signify. More ambassadors will be announced later. These front-runners in cloud technology are keen to share their experiences and inspire you to set new, bold steps that will accelerate your cloud journey.

The first workshop, for which you are personally invited, focuses on the business perspective, but we also address the people, organization and technology topics. After presenting recent international cloud study insights, one of the ambassadors will share his experience.

At the same time, this workshop facilitates the exchange of your experiences and insights with peers as well. Don’t let your cloud journey be a lonely affair. Join us for the 27 May lunch session.

An initiative of CIO Magazine, this program aims to offer participants a path to a more sustainable cloud transition through the exchange of knowledge and experience – by several cloud frontrunners and the participants themselves. We also conduct research. With the cooperation of the participants we will bundle all knowledge in a series of articles and publish a white paper.

This program has been co-developed with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cognizant and Rackspace, creating awareness of successful transitions.
