For many of us, life seems to have been on hold for nearly two years. The pandemic has forced organizations to rethink every aspect of their business, embracing a new level of creativity to adapt to this new world. 

With this, we should not be surprised that some organizations will emerge from this crisis stronger, more agile, more creative, and more resilient than ever before. It is similar to the metamorphosis of a caterpillar transforming into a fluttering butterfly: change can bring a beautiful, new beginning.

  • So what lessons has the crisis taught us?
  • What are the prerequisites for success in the post-pandemic era?
  • How is technology enabling this reinvention? 

These questions will be at the heart of this year’s Sogeti Executive Summit.

Although much is still uncertain, what is already clear is that organizations can only morph themselves into something more beautiful by looking inwards, not outwards. So, what will be your inward response to these metamorphoses?

  • From the 2D internet to the 3D metaverse
  • From wasteful production to a regenerative economy
  • From physical experiences to virtual transformations
  • From life-time employment to the gig-economy
  • From surveillance capitalism to digital happiness
  • From data processing to empathic computing

Our 2022 Sogeti Executive Summit is an invitation-only event that will feature a diverse group of inspiring speakers, exciting small-group discussions, and unique experiences to enjoy the vibrant Dublin culture.

Welcome back

State of the Art sessions


State of AI applied to Quality Engineering

Time to market is critical, as is perfection in all aspects of delivery. As users immerse themselves in rich user experiences outside of work, expectations for the same caliber of experiences have become table stakes. While the discipline of Quality Engineering and Testing at its core remains unchanged, just about every aspect of how Quality is achieved has changed. This includes legacy approaches to software testing that are no longer adequate for modern applications.

This session discusses the convergence of Artificial Intelligence and Quality Engineering and Testing (QE&T):

  • How can AI be used to address some of the challenges associated with test design, automation and quality measurement?
  • how AI can be used to address test data challenges?
  • How best to test AI, considering the underlying ethics?


One key to unlock your productivity potential? Power Platform in focus

We work with businesses across the globe to balance digital transformation with enterprise productivity. In 2022, low code systems like Power Platform are uniquely placed to help enterprises to solve key internal Digital Transformation challenges. Expensive IT teams are distracted by development requests and legacy system issues, while under growing pressure to accelerate time-to-market, cut costs and deliver on Digital Transformation. Meanwhile, enterprises face a shortage of skilled developers.

Low-code systems like Power Platform offer a cost-saving solution, by empowering employees to quickly develop apps and introduce new capabilities and services to market. Power Platform’s deep integration with Microsoft O365 and M365 means the system goes beyond low-code development to offer a complete enterprise productivity platform. Implementing Power Platform across organizations enables IT teams to protect their budgets and increase their capacity for digital transformation and pro-code development. We will discuss how Power platform can multiply your organizations development power and show the do’s and don’ts of scaling low code development.


Sustainability can be a core driver of cloud innovation

The cloud is revolutionizing the IT industry in many ways. Customers consume 77% fewer servers, 84% less power and reduce carbon emissions by 88% by using the cloud, and there is no denying that it’s positive impact on the environment is just another one of it’s many positive attributes. First, cloud providers themselves are becoming better at using renewable energy, and thus providing more carbon-efficient platforms for applications and data. Enterprises might leverage some solar and wind, but they won’t get to the scale of hyperscalers. Therefore, it’s more carbon efficient to offload processing to public cloud providers than it is for an enterprise to stand up its own wind or solar farms.

Second, the cloud model itself is inherently efficient. The cloud is about sharing resources. Enterprises routinely leverage only a portion of the servers they have in their private data centers, with some onsite servers averaging only 10% utilization. This is largely because they need to purchase compute and storage resources well ahead of need, thus their low utilization. In this session we will discuss how to apply additional services on top of your cloud environment, to create better insights and abilities to act on the changes also requested from your IT environments and organization.
