A tremendous year for Cegeka

"2017 was the year in which Cegeka celebrated its 25th anniversary. It gives me enormous pleasure to see that our core value – ‘In close cooperation’ – has not changed in all those years. Not only does it define who we are, it also includes the promise we make to our customers: we’re in this together."

- André Knaepen, CEO Cegeka

We live in a world where digital transformation and disruption have become the new normal. Organizations have to constantly reinvent themselves. They face the difficult task of keeping a cool head and taking the right steps in the digital arena. They have to do this in a controlled and targeted manner, without blindly following the hype.

That’s why there is a growing need for IT partners who are genuinely interested in helping organizations make the right strategic choices. IT partners who work in close cooperation with the customer, and who commit towards tangible results. Cegeka is such a partner.


Cegeka’s mission is to help customers survive and thrive in a world where the rules of the game are constantly changing. We do this by ‘unburdening’ C-level decision makers and helping them become digital to the core.

What makes us unique?

The world of IT is mostly about cold, hard facts and figures. These, of course, are crucial. But we want to make a difference: with our human approach, our empathy with customers’ business pains, and our commitment to make a tangible difference.

In the tough world of IT, Cegeka is a unique blend of level-headed pragmatism and genuine commitment. We go for ‘hard’ results, but we take a human approach. At Cegeka, we believe that ‘soft’ skills like empathy, flexibility and the ability to listen are just as important as knowledge and expertise.

The real Cegeka

The ‘real’ Cegeka cannot be summed up in one definition, as it is a patchwork of different people, cultures, talents, personalities and customers. It’s exactly this diversity, and the fact that we succeed in delivering great projects together, that makes us who we are.

However, Cegeka employees are expected to rally behind a set of values and principles such as ownership, curiosity, agility, entrepreneurship and respect. And everyone is expected to step out of their comfort zone when it comes to solving our customers’ problems.
