To remain competitive, organizations need to be agile and innovative. In addition to success factors such as leadership, culture, and attracting the right people, modernizing the IT landscape plays an important role. A flexible and scalable landscape enables the rapid deployment of digital innovations and the ability to adapt to new technologies.
TomTom experienced the necessity of reinvention firsthand: the introduction of the iPhone with GPS and free route planners made the company's future uncertain. TomTom therefore fully embraced digital innovation and the development of new services based on data and analytics (geolocation technology). One of their goals is to take a leading role in the navigation of self-driving cars.
During this Vision Dinner, Pieter Geelen, co-founder of TomTom, will take you on this journey and discuss the associated challenges. Following his presentation, there will be ample opportunity for an extensive dialogue with Pieter and the other participants. You are warmly invited to join!
