CIONET Round Table: Exploring the Edge

As organisations are bringing more and more of the digital world into the physical world, the line between IT and OT becomes blurred. This requires shifts in the organisational structures and new ways of working. It also brings about new challenges with compliance, cybersecurity, and data and technology management. IT departments are requested to rapidly extend their platform architecture and their multi-cloud environments to the edge. If IT departments don’t deliver quickly, they’re subjected to the choices of their operations colleagues.

CIONET SPAIN: Securing a Net-Zero Future

You are cordially invited to join us for an exclusive event on the importance of sustainability in the digital workplace. As society changes, ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) concerns are top of the agenda for consumers, corporate decision makers, and regulators. Enterprises are increasingly aware that their appeal to customers, investors, and employees is intrinsically linked to their ability to demonstrate a commitment to creating an inclusive and sustainable society. During the event, we will delve into the following topics: Why has sustainability become increasingly important, and what’s the role of secure IT? (and the importance of cybersecurity)? What is the impact of sustainability applications on cybersecurity? What are prominent sustainable IT and cybersecurity practices and how is the adoption? What are the ESG benefits and requirements for secure hybrid working? How can optimising and securing network and cloud infrastructure lower the carbon footprint?   How to leverage Artificial Intelligence to deliver a measurable impact? Why are digital leaders well positioned to take a leading role in sustainability? Agenda 18h00 - Welcome & introductions 19h00 - Presentation and 3-course dinner 21h00 - End

CIONET Belgium: Business Overdemanding, Software Underdelivering? Is Low-Code the way to close the gap?

The pressure from the business to deliver compelling software solutions continues to accelerate. Still traditional software delivery methods can often not keep up the pace. Software project are systematically delayed and the end-result does not always match the rapidly evolving demands. Could low-code be a help to close this gap between rapidly increasing and changing business demands and software delivery? Low-code development is a software development approach that allows developers to create applications using a visual interface and pre-built components, rather than having to write every line of code manually. Low code abstracts traditional code into human-readable logic and design, thus reducing software development costs and accelerating time to market. Moreover, low-code development would allow involving business colleagues, not only in creating but also in updating the custom applications to assure the alignment with their specific business needs. We invite you to sit together with digital leaders who can speak from their personal experiences, as they have realised major low-code development projects. The objective is to exchange ideas on how to capitalise on the strengths (or the pros) of low-code development and how to avoid or mitigate the risks and most common pitfalls (the cons). Agenda 18h00 - Welcome & introductions 19h00 - Presentation and 3-course dinner 21h00 - End
