14:00 - 17:30


Interoute, Leuvensesteenweg 573, Zaventem

Personal invitation only


Software defined networking, end user experience, moving to the cloud… These are all hot topics you find on your plate every day! But, what’s the value of SD WAN, SD DataCenter, Application Performance Management and other related buzz words for your company and for your users? Where are the pitfalls? What does this mean for your IT department? How  can you explain this to your CEO and business leaders? What does it mean to get contracts with KPI’s instead of SLA’s? Do you have to change the company processes? 


The CIO Masterclass will bring you some insights and instigate interactive discussions with your peers.

A new approach of Masterclasses will allow you to choose between a drill down session focused on

–        STRATEGY (recommended for CIO’s and CEO’s)


–        TECHNICAL DEEP DIVE (recommended for architects, IT managers,..)

The highlights of these two parallel tracks will be presented at the start for the CIO Café early evening.


Choose your preferred track; we invite you to prepare and send us in advance your most “burning” questions.

Seats for both tracks are limited to assure interactivity and good knowledge sharing.
