Every industry will be transformed by the new business models and revolutionary possibilities created by digital society in the 21stcentury.

This talk will address the critical success factors that leaders must embrace when transforming an enterprise into a player for the digital age. 

We will discuss the importance of data-driven business models to transform from traditional customer relationship management to customer experience management in the new world of digitally enabled customers.

We will present a framework that will emphasize the importance of real-time recommendation engines leveraging operational intelligence using self-learning algorithms with techniques drawn from the world of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

We will also propose an approach for monetizing data as a critical success factor for all enterprises who want to be successful in the digital age.  Issues such as enabling cultural change, organizational skill set requirements, and governance will also be discussed.  Case study examples of organizations that have been successful in executing digital transformation will be used throughout the presentation.

BICC congres 26 maart 2015 – Digitale disruptie? Business Intelligence slaat terug!

Hier heb je de laatste nieuwsbrief van Thomas More.

BICC congres 26 maart 2015 – Digitale disruptie? Business Intelligence slaat terug!

8ste BI congres van het BICC-Thomas More: 26 maart 2015
Donderdag 26 maart 2015 – 16u tot 20u
Campus De Ham, Raghenoplein 21bis, 2800 Mechelen
Deelnemen is GRATIS, inschrijven verplicht.

Met deze werktitel staat de 8ste editie van het congres bovenal in het teken van de strategische rol van BI.  Organisaties worden heden ten dage enerzijds overspoeld door een tsunami aan data terwijl anderzijds de verwachte deadlines tot ontsluiting van inzichten steeds krapper en krapper worden gesteld.  Koppel deze uitdaging in vele gevallen ook nog aan een erfenis van suboptimale rapporteringsprojecten en het mag duidelijk zijn dat een efficiënte en effectieve aanpak van informatiemanagement een speerpunt dient te zijn in een modern beleidsproces.

We leggen momenteel de laatste hand aan het programma maar lichten alvast een tipje van de sluier met geconfirmeerde bijdragen van oa. Jörgen Jacob (Managing Director van Fit IT), Philip Allegaert (Director Big Data & Analytics bij Keyrus), Tobias Temmink (Business Development Manager bij Teradata Benelux), Bart Maertens (Managing Partner know.bi) en Dries Van Nieuwenhuyse (thought leader op het gebied van technologie en statistieken van de besluitvormingsprocessen).

Tot slot.  Deelname in dit onafhankelijk event is nog steeds gratis.

Aarzel dus niet en schrijf u hier in: http://bicc.thomasmore.be/drupal7/congres2015

Performance MANAGEMENT 3.0 – De evidentie zelf

Eind vorig jaar organiseerde het BICC voor het derde jaar op rij het Performance MANAGEMENT event.  Dit event is gegroeid vanuit het afstudeertraject Informatiemanagement met de bedoeling om een platform te bieden waarop onze laatstejaars studenten hun ervaringen en lessons learned kunnen delen en aftoetsen met het bedrijfsleven.

Ook voor deze editie mochten we opnieuw een gevatte vertegenwoordiging van bedrijven actief binnen het domein van Informatiemanagement verwelkomen die de poster pitch presentaties zeer wisten te smaken.

Het thema van deze editie, “Hoe Performance MANAGEMENT daadwerkelijk embedden in het DNA van een organisatie”,  was dan ook ambitieus en illustratief voor de sterk veranderde omgeving waarbinnen kenniswerkers zich momenteel bevinden.   Benieuwd naar meer?

Next Generation Security

IT moet nieuwe security strategieën ontwikkelen om de risico’s te beperken en intelligentie toepassen om de organisatie en haar activa te beschermen door middel van nieuwe analytics, innovatie, en een systematische aanpak van security.

De bescherming van persoonsgegevens is, uiteraard, een deel van de taak van een IT security expert. Volgens Peter Berghmans,  Data Protection Officer en expert in Privacy, pleit dat het privacy risico integraal deel uitmaakt van het ‘cyber threat program’.

“De volgende grote trend voor IT-experts is het nadenken over de zogenaamde ‘privacy by design’ – het creëren van producten / diensten die de juiste balans houden tussen wat de consument van een product krijgt, en de privacy die ze daarvoor ‘prijsgeeft’ (niet altijd bewust). Dit is de zogenaamde veiligheid paradox.
