CIONET Webinars are an opportunity to learn from and get inspired by the experiences of some of our members. If you were unable to participate in the live webinars we organised last year or just want to start the year with a boost of energy, knowledge and inspiration, here is your chance to view or review four of our recorded webinars.


Digital Transformation at the German Office of Migration

Webinar: Digital Transformation at the German Office of MigrationMarkus Richter, CIO at the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees and European CIO of the Year 2017, takes us through his experience of digital transformation in this governmental organisation. The enormous pressure from the fast developing major refugee crisis not only triggered a record time response with an organisational redesign, but was also an opportunity to start engaging with all stakeholders and boosting a full digital transformation process. In this webinar, you will also learn about this organisation’s ongoing and future projects involving blockchain, predictive tools and open innovation.

From specific digitalisation projects like a delivery-zone management system for the KFC and Pizza Hut brands to the operational implications of those initiatives in human resources, for example, you will understand how great business value can really be achieved through a well-thought data strategy.
