Beltug @ Le Cercle du Numérique
Oui, chez Beltug nous maîtrisons aussi le français! One of our cherished members is Le Cercle du Numérique: a French speaking circle of digital technology decision makers. The association organises conferences and debates across the French-speaking area of Belgium. Having associations like the Cercle as members (as well as V-ICT-OR, Unizo, VOKA, etc.) helps us strengthen and diversify our community, serve more purposes, and reach many more people with our content.
Recently, Beltug had the honour to present the priorities of the Cercle’s members and of the Data Act, at a Cercle event.

Priorities of the members of the Cercle
As an addition to the Beltug Priorities Compass, with the priorities of the CIOs and digital technology leaders in Belgium (in FR and NL), we did the same exercise with the members of the Cercle. Members of the Cercle see IT governance, IT security strategy, enterprise architecture, cyber-attacks and IT security architecture as their main priorities. Out of the top 10 priorities, the two groups share 8, as the orange circles below show.

Priorities in the Data Act
The objective of the Data Act is to create a fair data economy. But what are its priorities? Beltug also spoke on this topic, beginning with the slightly provocative conclusion that organisations have almost blindly been moving their data to the cloud. Cloud providers now have enormous quantities of our company data, putting them in a strong position to train AI applications. But it also raises very practical questions: how will you get your data back when you switch cloud provider? And how can we ensure that the data – generated by the organisations, not the cloud provider itself – can be shared and benefit the organisation? Realising these two elements is indeed the priority of the Data Act.
