InterSystems Benelux Symposium 2019


Fueling Change Matters


There is no way around it: the world is going digital. Is it good news? Is it bad news? What is certain: It causes a lot of confusion. How to manage this digital transformation? What does it mean for my IT systems? Should I change my business model? What are the next steps if I want to go digital?

Answers to these questions will be discussed at the InterSystems Benelux Symposium 2019.  Analysts, academics, industry experts and peers will be sharing their ideas, observations and best practices in Antwerp on February 5 and 6. And you are cordially invited!

Day 1.

The first day is all about business challenges and how to overcome them. Our keynote speakers provide insights into the changes, digital transformation entails – in the minds, in the organization, in the IT systems. They will share case studies on machine learning and AI, tell you about data governance done right and explain why it is important to re-invent our thinking and subsequently our IT. After lunch, you can choose to attend one of two forum tracks:

  • Healthcare Forum: Powering smart healthcare
  • Technology Forum: Intelligent technology and innovation

Day 2.

The second day is dedicated to the developers among us. We will zoom into the InterSystems IRIS Data Platform and present our latest product, InterSystems IRIS for Health – the first comprehensive data platform for the healthcare industry. You can also experience IRIS Data Platform live – we will be offering an exclusive hands-on session drilling into microservices, cloud and containers.

After the sessions, the Caché User Group (CUG) will take place.
