Webinar | Adaptief waterbeheer door slim sturen

Only available in Dutch

Nederland heeft de afgelopen jaren zowel te kampen gehad met hoosbuien als met extreme droogte. De bestaande infrastructuur en processen zijn hier vaak niet op ingericht. Hoe kan bestaande infrastructuur worden ingezet om wateroverlast en droogte tegen te gaan, bij voorkeur met zo laag mogelijke kosten?

Op 15 april organiseert ICT samen met KISTERS een webinar over adaptief waterbeheer door slim sturen op basis van een BOS met RTO. Een Beslissing Ondersteunend Systeem (BOS) met real-time optimalisatie (RTO) voldoet aan de opkomende behoefte om slim te kunnen sturen om zodoende klimaatbestendiger te worden met de veranderende weersomstandigheden als extreme warmte, droogte of regenval. Hiermee krijgen beheerders een oplossing waarmee ze op een intuïtieve en nauwkeurige manier het watersysteem of de waterketen kunnen optimaliseren.

Tijdens de Webinar komen de volgende onderwerpen aan bod:

  • Wat is een digital twin van een oppervlaktewatersysteem?
  • Wat is real-time optimalisatie, en hoe verhoudt het zich tot dynamisch peilbeheer en slim malen?
  • De identificatie en ordening van sturings- en optimalisatiedoelen.
  • Een demonstratie van KISTERS Real-Time Optimalisatie in het KISTERS Water Portal voor real-time control en beslisondersteuning.

Dit Webinar wordt geleid door Arjen van Dam (ICT) en Jorn Baayen (KISTERS) en is Nederlands gesproken.

“Cyber security in IT/OT environments”

Register now


Choosing an integrated approach

Securing IT and OT systems properly is just as important today as developing them. This can be complex and comprehensive. ICT Group helps you to gain insight into this puzzle and to set the right priorities. As far as we are concerned, starting simple and opting for an integral approach is the best advice.


Towards an agile, but also secure NS organization

Onno Wierbos, IT Lead of the Test Competence Center at Dutch Railways

If you want to be agile in your IT delivery, complete outsourcing of cyber security is no longer an option. You have to get going yourself. But how do you go about that? Where do you start? How do you build up knowledge and skills? And how do you retain it? Onno Wierbos has carried out this transformation for Dutch Railways over the past 5 years. With success. He tells about the course of the past years, discusses the difficulties and the solutions. And he looks ahead to the next 5 years, because Dutch Railways is only halfway.

Onno Wierbos

With 20 years of experience in software development and telecommunications, Onno Wierbos’ craftsmanship is deeply rooted. Both in terms of content and management. Since 2012 Onno has been in charge of high quality IT production at Dutch Railways. His greatest passion is performance testing, security testing and sustainable implementation of test automation. 


Process automation in the OT domain

Henk van Ee, Lecturer in Security Management at Saxion University of Applied Sciences

Process automation, for example, controls traffic lights, locks, bridges and a machine in a cookie factory. For a long time, this was a kind of black box and the domain of technicians with the main objective: ensuring optimal availability of the system. Now that more and more systems and processes are linked to the Internet, you see that cybercriminals only need one hole to take over the operation of the processes, for example. With all its consequences. Henk van Ee talks about a number of practical assignments he has done for the Municipality of Apeldoorn. What is the state of cyber security of the matrix signs in the city, the control of locks and pumping stations and the operation of parking garages?

Henk van Ee

In addition to his work as a lecturer at Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Henk van Ee is active at the MKB Cyber Campus in Leeuwarden, where they carry out risk scans in the agricultural sector. There are often high fences around agricultural businesses to keep out physical burglars, but ‘digital’ fences against cybercriminals are limited. He has also done several assignments together with students within the Cybersecurity Center Maakindustrie Oost Nederland.


Cyber security detection on oil and gas production platforms

Martijn Kooij, Managing Director at Raster Industrial Automation

Security solutions for IT are widely adopted, but for OT environments there are still considerable challenges in that area. For example, Raster equipped an oil and gas production facility in the North Sea with a cyber security detection solution. By monitoring the network for unpredictable behavior and intruders, the continuity of production at the plant is guaranteed. Martijn Kooij explains what the reason was for implementing Raster’s cyber security solution here and what benefits this solution brings to the customer.

Martijn Kooij

Raster is a project-oriented system integrator specialized in production and process automation. From his expertise in operational excellence, industrial automation and various control and safety systems, Martijn Kooij jumped into the gap of cyber security solutions for OT systems with Raster Industrial Automation.

Webinar | Succesvol meer uit je data halen begint bij analoog

Only available in Dutch

Data is overal. En we weten dat door data slim in te zetten, nieuwe inzichten kunnen ontstaan, bedrijfsprocessen geoptimaliseerd kunnen worden, maar ook voorspellend onderhoud kan plaatsvinden.

Er is zoveel al gedigitaliseerd dat we soms door de data het doel niet meer weten te vinden. We zoeken nog altijd naar wat de weg is naar het succesvol inzetten van onze data om inzichten te krijgen en kansen te spotten. Waar zit het succes hem nu in? Is het in het datamodel, de software of de competenties van mensen. Op 3 december organiseert AllSolutions het webinar ‘Succesvol meer uit je data halen begint bij analoog’ in samenwerking met ICT. Jaco Bruinaars (Finance Director bij ICT Netherlands) en Jan van Wijngaarden (Managing Director bij AllSolutions) gaan in op bovenstaande vragen en dagen u als luisteraar uit ook uw vragen en dilemma’s in te brengen.

Van Data naar informatiemanagement
De techniek maakt het steeds makkelijker om data te verzamelen, analyseren, en visualiseren. Zo heeft ICT een data lake opgezet met data uit AllSolutions en andere interne systemen. Het combineren van die data zorgde voor nieuwe inzichten. Inzichten die ICT direct toe kon passen op een aantal interne processen. Zo werd beter inzichtelijk als een project buiten het gestelde budget, of de afgesproken tijd liep en kon eerder ingegrepen worden.

AllSolutions staat vele financieel managers betekenisvol bij met een online softwareplatform. Door slimmer gebruik te maken van big data kan er informatie – business intelligence – uitgehaald worden. Meer data geeft meer inzichten en meer mogelijkheden om kansen te spotten.

Meld u nu aan
Nieuwsgierig geworden? Het webinar is geschikt voor iedere finance professional die meer wil leren over hoe je succesvol data kunt inzetten om inzichten te genereren en kansen te spotten.

Webinar | Model Based Testing and SafeScrum in a safety critical environment

This webinar will be in Dutch. Do you want to know more about the webinar or the subject? Please contact us. 

Webinar sessions: Managing complexity and software development efficiency with Model-Driven Development code generation
The complexity of software intensive systems is ever increasing. Model-Driven Design technologies and code generation have the potential to manage complexity and increase software development efficiency. Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) and Model-Based Testing (MBT) are methods to design software faster, cheaper and more efficiently. Based on the system requirements, you make an abstract model. This model serves as a common language for all stakeholders to improve comprehensibility and reduce system complexity. Tools then automatically generate the code for the system (MDE) or for the test (MBT). The result: more innovative products that you can bring to market faster. As one of the first software companies to specialize in these relatively new approaches to software design, ICT Group looks forward to assisting you by sharing our knowhow, expertise and experience. Please sign up for our webinars om June 25 and June 30‘ via Microsoft Teams at 10.00 a.m.

Model-Based Testing and SafeScrum in a safety-critical environment: Lessons learned from a Train Information System for ERTMS

The Dutch railroads are becoming even busier. The government and railroad companies have the ambition to improve the quality of the rail network. Introducing a new train security and management system – European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) – has to contribute to this. A long-term and complex project of enormous proportions.

ProRail Logistics has decided to use the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) for the development of the safety-critical ETIS (ERTMS Train Information System) product. Developing Safety-Critical Systems is regulated in terms of quality and safety. An example in the railroad domain is the Cenelec EN 50126-1 safety standard. From a security standpoint it is only natural that development is performed with traditional and proven methods. ProRail opts for a new approach in which the system is developed iteratively and possible problems in the project are brought forward as much as possible. And this is why they selected the solutions of InTraffic and Axini; an iterative approach in a safety environment, by using SafeScrum and Model-Based Testing.

How do you apply these techniques in a critical safety environment? ProRail, Axini and InTraffic explain how based on the ETIS product.


We would like to invite your for our “Model-Based Testing and SafeScrum in a safety-critical environment: Lessons learned from a Train Information System for ERTMS” via Microsoft Teams on June 30, 10.AM, host by Julien Schmaltz!

If you are interested, you could also follow our webinar on June 25: Model-Driven Engineering: efficiently developing software in a complex environment, where are we now?
