16:30 The priorities of the Belgian business market, and an update on Beltug's initiatives
Be among the first to find out the priorities of Belgium's ICT decision makers. Every year, 300+ of our members respond to our Priorities Compass (the annual Beltug survey to gauge the topics that matter most to our community). The information and insight from the survey is the foundation of Beltug’s user-driven action plan for the upcoming working year, with concrete deliverables combining information sessions, user stories and interactive discussions.
