Cloud Strategies

Shaping the Future of Cloud Computing - The Next Chapters of Security, Scalability and Governance

May 31 - June 10, 2022


About the Event

The acceleration of cloud computing has created a paradigm shift in the way enterprises do business, and it’s not slowing down any time soon. As a cloud leader, you are enabling the organization in a new area, where we have moved towards speed, scalability, and innovation. However, succeeding with the vision and reaching strategic goals for the cloud operation is not an easy way, therefore IT professionals need continuous attention on security, privacy, and cost optimization.

Stay ahead of the curve, learn best practices from your peers and empower yourself with in-depth expertise at our upcoming Cloud Strategies. This year’s event will be part of a bigger happening: ME Executive Day. Here we will gather multiple IT target groups under one roof. Next to gathering Cloud leaders, we will also welcome other IT end responsibilities on Tech and Digital. Together we’ll connect and discuss the latest trends, developments, and strategic initiatives within cloud security, governance, and innovation.

Featured Sessions

Case presentation : One Container at a Time: Deploying with Portability and Control
Removing the constraints of the notorious lock-in scenario and deploying without the fear of instability, Container-as-a-Service is meant to enable secure scalability at a high speed.

• Gaining flexibility by enabling deployment in multiple environments
• Increasing efficiency by scaling horizontally with multiple identical containers
• Fortifying security with isolated distribution

Listen in to this keynote where Jonas talks about how they are utilizing this service.
Speaker: Jonas Aspman - SKF Group
Panel discussion : Organizing for the Cloud Era: Going from Limitation to Innovation
With Cloud becoming the dominant force in IT, the question is how you set up an efficient organization working with it. Who does what and when, and how much should be outsourced to third-party providers? In this panel, you will get insights from leading Cloud experts on how they have set up their cloud team to maximize the value through Cloud-enabled capabilities
Speakers: Henk Coenen - NXP Semiconductors, Gerrit-Jan Beerthuis - Nederlandse Spoorwegen - NS, Hans Borgman - University of Amsterdam Business School
Case presentation : Edge vs Cloud – Are you Integrating it or Assimilating It?
Organizations are looking at how they can easily scale and increase the speed to market in a world that is increasingly connected and real-time data-driven. Especially, IoT produces a large amount of data that needs to be processed and analyzed so it can be used. Therefore, PostNL is trying to sort through the benefits of edge and cloud computing. What are the current developments? How to extend the cloud? How to determine if edge computing is right for your solution? Which services/applications will you run in the edge, and why?

During this session, Joost van der Vlies will share how PostNL determines how they choose between cloud and the edge.
Speaker: Joost van der Vlies - PostNL
Case presentation : Everything is Untrusted - A cloud- Based Security Model
Traditional views of network security are constantly challenged by developments in the world of hacking and with modern, cloud-based innovations. Although organizations previously felt securing the perimeter around IT infrastructure was enough, the global pandemic, technological innovations, and remote working have made this strategy outdated. Recently, Carrefour Belgium has partnered with Google Cloud to drive digital transformation across its supermarket chain, which will be based on a zero-trust security framework.

During this session, will Stijn Stabels share insights on their Cloud Journey and their road to a secured cloud framework.
Speaker: Stijn Stabel - Carrefour Belgium
