14:15 Hybrid orchestrated cloud architecture: from strategy to realisation
To make the right decisions in the journey to cloud, you first have to understand cloud architecture. We’ll learn about how to optimise the possibilities of cloud, based on insight gained with customers and cloud hyperscalers (Azure, GCP, AWS), as we hear about:
- Cloud Architecture
- Customer case(s)
Peter Retera, CTO – Benelux & the Nordics, Atos (English)
14:45 Q&A: Your questions, your experience
15:00 Case: Cloud industrialisation for enterprises
While cloud delivers an extremely easy and flexible way to rapidly build new services, this flexibility often leads to unmanaged services. IT in any enterprise is a complex interaction of integrated services that need careful orchestration of deployment and lifecycles. Cloud industrialisation enables IT processes, policies and development pipelines to be mapped into the cloud, in order to ensure that much of the flexibility can be retained. We’ll hear about Melexis’s journey, including its struggles and successes, as it tackled cloud industrialisation.
Koen Bosmans, End User Computing and Cloud Expert, Melexis (English)

16:00 Share the experiences - Interactive discussion (users only)
Moderated by Danielle Jacobs, CEO, Beltug.
As this subject came out as the top priority of our members, we would like to give you the opportunity to discuss the questions you face, the pitfalls you struggle with, and the experiences you can share, especially with IAAS.
Here are some suggestions, but it will be up to the participants to decide which we will discuss:
- Should you keep your critical applications on-premise or in the cloud? Why?
- Experiences exiting the cloud
- How to secure your architecture
- Regulatory issues
- Dominance of certain large cloud providers and lock-in
- Contractual issues
- How to orchestrate different cloud services
- Pricing models for Azure and AWS
- Barriers to cloud adoption
These are only a few of the aspects we can address: please email us your additional topics so we can prepare this session in an optimal way.
