The exhibition links 6 themes to our digital future. Using yearly research within the Belgian market, we recognise their trending themes. These are used in exhibition clusters as an inspirational source to keep informed about today's 'impacts and innovations'.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing has slowly matured. More and more large organizations dare to move to public cloud services and experts expect companies to more often apply a ‘cloud first’ principle in their IT strategy. To keep up with these developments, you will also have to start using cloud. You can find what benefits this entails and what the challenges are and this will also be discussed extensively during the exhibition.


The past year has shown that developers of the latest Internet of Things-devices have taken too little account of the protection of these connected devices. Moreover, cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated, what makes Cybersecurity still one of the main focal points of organizations. What possibilities there are to engage in the fight against cybercrime, will be the center of focus during the exhibition.

Data Center & Infrastructure Optimisation

Within the data center, storage, management and dissemination of data and information is organized. Giving meaning to this data is becoming increasingly important and therefore the infrastructure shall be arranged in a way that supports it. For this reason, the IT infrastructure must be optimized.

Artificial & data intelligence


Smarter is the new faster. With artificial intelligence or artificial intelligence, machines learn to copy actions and decisions made by people. Also called machine learning. Logic reasoning, language understanding and error learning are done by machines themselves based on countless data. Over the years, data has become more of a guide than just information. It is the oil of a successful organization. Those who want to survive or even more importantly take the lead in the digital economy must be able to use data in a smart way.

Digital Transformation

Any organisation that simply uses IT to keep its systems running has little right to exist these days. Where automation is primarily supportive, digital will take an increasingly leading roll. More and more companies choose a digital-first strategy, with services, business processes and business models that are driven digitally. How can you steer your organisation towards a digital-driven transformation? And which digital services are applicable in your business?

Privacy, Governance & Risk Management

When there is little or no governance, problems may arise when customer’s data is lost or stolen. This will affect your customer’s privacy and he will therefore not only lose confidence in your company, but you will also lose a lot of money on various damages. You can read here what you can do to avoid such risks, and this will also be discussed in more detail during the exhibition.
