About this event

Streaming movies, live weather radars, medical wearables: our lives have changed drastically. Both technology companies and governments have been collecting and using data, the first to provide better customer experiences and increase up- or cross selling, the latter to promote the common good. At the same time, our expectations have gone up. Personalized services and immediate responses are the new normal.

So what if industry and governments started sharing (more) data? Would we embrace this as the next step in making our lives better? Or would we feel this is taking things one step too far? Can we as citizens control what kind of data is shared and restrict how industry or governments will be using it?

To tackle this issue, we have invited influential digital leaders from both industry and governments. They will provide latest insights on how sharing and integrating data can further impact and improve our daily lives in a more secure way. And from our part, we will show how our Digital Transformation BITM Programs can help executives put these insights into practice.

And of course, there will be plenty of room during the networking reception for sharing your thoughts and discussing the agenda for BITM for the next coming years!
