On the twenty-sixth of September 2019, it was time for our yearly event! For the third time in a row under the name ITQ Transform! This year the theme of the event was “Empower your Business”.
The event was located in Fort Voordorp near Utrecht in Holland. A central spot in the country with enough parking space to accommodate all attendees.
For the attendees, there was choice enough to select an appropriate session. The sessions were grouped into three main categories:

Empower the Digital Workspace
Modernizing your Apps
There were also multiple guest speakers how we’re responsible for the opening and closing keynotes:

ITQ Transform Session
This year I did a customer case session with a VMware Cloud Provider called ViaData. It was a combined effort with Jitse Hijlkema about the first Cloud Provider Pod that was deployed in the Benelux. Because of our experience with the product, it was time to talk about it in the form of a knowledge sharing session.
For those who are interested here is the presentation of our slide deck. The drawback is that the entire event was in Dutch… so we are sorry if you are an English viewer.
Yesterday I attended “ITQ Transform” an event organized by my employer (ITQ). The event was all about IT Transformation and helping the customer. At the event there were about 150 people who were mostly customers of ITQ. The keynote speaker was Brian Gammage (Chief Marketing Technologist at VMware), who explained to everyone in the room how imported IT Transformation is.
The event was organized in Utrecht a city in The Netherlands. The location is centrally located in the country and the building is very suited for business events like transform.
At the event, there were twelve sessions of thirty minutes with presentations around the following subjects:
End User Computing
(Cloud Native) Development
Software Defined Data Center
IT Transformation Services
The sessions were given by ITQ Consultants and Partners VMware, IBM and Pivotal. At the end of the day, there was room for talking and socializing with customers and ITQ personal.
On March 16 2017, I attended the NLVMUG 2017 in the Netherlands. Frank Denneman from VMware presented the opening keynote about “VMware Cloud on AWS”. The NLVMUG is a one-day event and displayed 65 sessions, a remarkably high number. The NLVMUG is one of the largest/is the largest VMUG in the world.
This week the NLVMUG organization published the presentations and recorded sessions online. The information is for everyone available and free of charge.
