Brussel, Belgium

Welcome to the 18th edition of the European CIO Annual Conference


Businesses and IT organizations are all in transformation these days and have to manage the ever growing expectations of customers and markets as well as the paradigm shifts that may threaten the business and the credibility of IT. The potential of digital for companies  is still not fully exploited yet, but some enterprises are already looking beyond.


In addition, challenges  will be encountered in domains of skills, availability of skills, technical environment with slow cloud adoption and various technical choices. There is still an increasing demand for IT professionals who can deliver quality and value to organization.


The digital economy is growing at seven times the rate of the rest of the economy. The European Commission estimates that completing the Digital Single Market could contribute €415 billion per year to Europe’s economy, create 3.8 million jobs and transform public services. In addition, many future jobs will require information and communications technologies (ICT) skills, rendering the process of acquiring digital skills an imperative.
