Venue: W Amsterdam


In today’s changeable economic environment, more demands are made on your organisation. There is no doubt that your CEO is asking you to do more with less.  As CIO you are challenged not only to optimise costs, but also to deliver transformational digital initiatives like Cloud, Big Data and Mobility solutions to create value in a highly competitive market

According to a recent Gartner survey, on average 89% of IT budgets are spent on ongoing operations and enhancements, while only 11% goes to projects that really move the needle for organisations.

Meanwhile, ERP maintenance costs are most likely one of your largest IT spends, with vendors not committed to further developing your existing platform, instead wanting to move you to the cloud. It seems there is a disconnect between what organisations want to do and what the vendors deliver.

Join us for an open discussion about how you can drive innovation whilst saving operational costs.
