ICT WOMAN OF THE YEAR 2016
Director ICTS, KU Leuven
Annemie Depuydt gained a master's degree in geography and a master's in IT from the KU Leuven. She lectured for a year at the Catholic KH Leuven University College but later returned to the university. She has been the head of management of ICTS since 2008. This is the unified ICT Department of the university that previously brought together the previous Ludit and AIV. Annemie Depuydt thus unified the former computer centre together with operational IT.
Her task was, however, far from over. Meanwhile, there is indeed the coordinating KU Leuven Association to which also the university colleges Thomas More and Odisee and others belong. This means that all ICT systems must also be accessible for most of these institutions. Think for example, of Internet access but also webmail, all administrative info (KU Loket) and the student platform Toledo. An important platform was for example still the roll-out of Office 365 but also Lync and Skype for Business are recent challenges and we have not yet touched on Kotnet or the HPC cluster (high performance computing for scientific calculations) or the SAP project (Anemoon). Basically, this lady knows how to fill in her days and is also a networker. She is responsible at ICTS for a team of over 220 employees.
YOUNG ICT LADY OF THE YEAR 2016
ITS PS SOC Supervisor/Proc Manager ING
Ursula Dongmo graduated in 2009 with an engineering diploma in electronics and telecommunications specializing in multimedia. Via her thesis, she received a grant to carry out further research at the university. She changed this job two years later to start work as an IT consultant at a Dutch bank. There, she became specialized in Dutch and SEPA (European) payments giving rise to her ambition for project management. In November 2013, she switched to ING where she embarked on various paths in combination with intensive training and self-development, thanks to an ORMIT traineeship.
She was among other things, a business consultant, information analyst, transition support manager, project manager and is currently an expert process manager. She hereby puts a team together herself for end-to-end service monitoring with herself as the supervisor. Here, she monitors the national activities of ING Belgium with a special eye for end-to-end application stacks.
