WILLEMSTAD – The IT platform ISACA Curaçao Chapter is organizing its annual conference on 4 and 5 September 2018 entitled ‘Mastering digital transformation-Building a Robust Future’ at the Central Bank of Curaçao and Sint Maarten.
With the conference, ISACA wants to give Curaçao better insight into the new possibilities of the information technology and to better manage challenges. The world is undergoing extreme changes as a result of the rapid developments in technology. The impact of this on a company is important, as it changes the infrastructural needs as well as the speed of commerce. It is not easy for companies to make the right decisions when it comes to applying new technologies.
International experts from the United States, Canada, Italy, Aruba, Curaçao and the Netherlands will discuss the latest changes in technology and how to implement them successfully during the conference. On the first day of the conference, topics are highlighted as ‘The Dark Web’, ‘Big Data’, ‘Change Management’ and ‘Risk Management’. On the second day, one business case is highlighted from various angles. The fictitious company Krio-Trade will undergo a transformation from a contemporary wholesale and retailer to a fully digitized modern organization. Live systems will be presented to the participants. In addition, the event offers participants the opportunity to network during the sponsored breakfast, lunch and happy hour.
Until August 28, you can go to the website www.isacacuracao.com at a reduced rate of USD 75 (!) per day to register. The conference is made possible by Arcas Partners, BearingPoint, IBM, Ictual, NetPro / Inova, 2Share, SOAB, Maduro & Curiel’s Bank, the Central Bank of Curacao and Sint Maarten and ISACA International.
