Phase one of the digital revolution ended.
What is phase two going to bring?

On Wednesday, October 27, 2004 the Club of Amsterdam presents an evening about the future of ICT

"... There are several countries that are very successful with their creation and implementation of ICT. The few that were investigated in this study: Korea, India, China, USA and Japan all outperform the EU in many respects. These countries have bold initiatives and dare to improve their position in the field of ICT with proactive industrial policies. Europe too can be successful. Present policies are very useful but not instrumental enough to enable Europe to catch up with other economic powers. We have to reconsider the present policies to identify the issues that are obstructing further progress and consider further the breakthroughs that could be achieved. ..." - Erik L.J. Klein Nagelvoort, Co-author of the EU report "Rethinking The European ICT Agenda", August 2004.

"The future of ICT, myths, musts, directions, constraints and global reality driving all events here. Today, as never before, we are bombarded, confronted, and overwhelmed by change. From technology, to work skills, to social environments, it never seems to stop. Is the tail wagging the dog here in ICT, or are we still capable to master its future...." - Peter R. Luiks.

"...Overwhelmed by a growing workload and endless flow of content, executives today are forced to choose between providing volume, speed or quality. Some succeed at generating content quickly, but at the expense of accuracy or regulatory compliance. Others take time to ensure a higher degree of quality, but in doing so impede time-to-market, giving the competition a significant head start. The competitive need to get the best of all worlds is driving the ICT market to realise that a fundamental shift in infrastructure is needed in modern content systems. Everyone will be affected, but how can we achieve the goals while minimising disruption and costs? ..." - Ben Urbina.

The speakers are Erik L.J. Klein Nagelvoort, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Peter R. Luiks, CEO/COO, International Business Liaisons, Advisory Board, International Centre for Consulting Excellence, Ben Urbina, Business Development Manager, XMetaL Group, Blast Radius, EMEA. The evening is moderated by Karel van der Poel, Co-founder, CEO, Mirror42.
