Theme:"A Match Made Somewhere: Big Data and the Internet of Everything"
Place: Diamant Center – Boulevard Reyerslaan – B-1030 Brussels
Date: 28th May 2015
Time: 11:30 to 15:00

For the seventh year running, TOP MANAGEMENT & AGORIA are organizing a meeting between the CEOs and CIOs.
The aim of this meeting is to get together the CEOs, the IT managers so that they can think together about the concrete strategic issues in which the IT people play a major role.

The Internet of Things promises to change industries such as insurance and public utilities. To enjoy the benefits, companies must change how they store and analyze Big Data.

What do SAS, Cisco, Duke Energy and AT&T have in common? They are all big proponents of the Internet of Things (IoT), also often called the Industrial Internet.

The central idea behind IoT is that sensors and microchips can be placed anywhere and everywhere to create a collective network that connects devices and generates data. Instead of that data sitting in an information silo where it is accessible to only a few specialists, it becomes part of a Big Data "lake" where it can be analyzed in the context of other information.

"The Internet of Things means everything will have an IP address," said Jim Davis, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, SAS.

Project of the lunch /debate programme:

- Introduction by the President of the CEOs-CIOs, Marc Lambotte, CEO Agoria.
- Keynote speaker IBM
- Keynote speaker Xerox (Monica Beltrametti, Chief Services Research Officer Worldwide and VP Xerox Innovation Group)

« Connecting new Data, Technology & People » - Martine Bayens

« Today, all marketers & IT-ers encounter turbulent times. Turbulence caused by the amplitude of big data created every millisecond on this planet, the fast paced evolution of multiple technologies and most importantly the rapidly changing expectations of our customers due to the internet of ‘everything’. Consumers become actors in the Marketing story. How do CMO’s & CIO’s continue to perform well in these turbulent environments? How do we deal with these disruptions that are happening all around us? How do we meet our customer’s expectations? How do we adopt new ways of thinking and turn all this into opportunities? This can only be done by connecting new Data, Technology & People. »

« Data and the Digitization of Business Models » - Monica Beltrametti

« Technology, big data and analytics are having a profound impact on industries and business models. Dr Beltrametti will share a number of examples of how this change is unfolding and evolving in a number of fields including transportation, customer care, healthcare and manufacturing. »

« From Big Data to Smart Data : challenges and opportunities » - André Bouffioux

« How important is the interaction between the virtual and real worlds in many industries, cities, power utilities today? Which are the opportunities arising from this ? And how digitalization will shape the future and revolutionize manufacturing, energy generation and distribution and make our infrastructures more intelligent ? How Siemens can contribute to transform oceans of unstructured heterogeneous data into customer value? »
