Competing for talent in tech

NITEC18 is in full swing. The exhibition area in Berlin's InterContinental Hotel is crowded with delegates busy networking, while B2B meetings are fully booked.

Senior keynote speakers from Cisco, Thales, Bitkom and the German Federal Ministry of Defence will lead the #NITEC18 conversation on Wednesday morning, evaluating new trends in digital transformation.

Together with moderator RADM Dr Thomas Daum, the NCI Agency's Chief of Staff, panelists will discuss how current practices and processes can be improved, in order to inject renewed agility and boost the effectiveness of digital transformation efforts.

Meanwhile, the 'Competing for Talent' panel, moderated by Dell's Pascale Van Damme, and comprising Christina Balis from QinetiQ, Kristie Grinnell from General Dynamics Information Technology and Alisson Reardon from AT&T, will address current challenges - as well as opportunities – on the job market.

In the afternoon, subject matter experts will highlight NATO business opportunities in the areas of Command and Control, Joint Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance; air and missile defence; education and training; IT infrastructure; business applications and cyber.

Conference participants will also be offered interactive sessions on NATO bidding methodology and how to succeed in doing business with NATO.

Last, but not least, Agency experts will unveil the new blueprints for NATO's deployable communications and information systems – further details on this exciting project can be found here or at NITEC18.
