- Is there only one hybrid model, and why is this important?
- Where does hybrid cloud fit in the world of IoT, Edge and Artificial Intelligence?
- How do companies retain their heritage while maximising the new ‘magic’?

15:15 Q&A: Your questions, your experience
15:30 Fast fibre optic connection to the cloud - a perspective on network performance.
You cannot have smooth cloud usage without high-performing networks. The Federal Public Service Mobility and Transport is all about keeping things moving - via road, railways, water and air. But back office data also travels: between servers in Brussels and local branch offices elsewhere in Belgium, and to the cloud server in Amsterdam that guarantees secure backup. Jo Vanderwegen & Stijn Fouquaert share their experiences, challenges and lessons learned in developing this vital backup, while also guaranteeing uptime.
