Paul Slot opened the event by an introduction of ‘The New ETIS’ mentioning how ETIS is going digital and outlining our successes of the past year. He also gave an introduction into forthcoming presentations. Do you remember the main 5 pillars of ETIS Strategy which was launched in Zagreb last year? How has ETIS changed since then and what will this bring to our members?

During the Common Session we learned how e-Estonia managed to get so advanced in digitalization by combining their own competences with a clear top down strategic view on e-gov. What were the reasons that made it easier for Estonia to overcome the process of digitalization and what can be the lessons learnt for us?

We also had a chance to listen to new trends in technology and could get an insight into the future of telecommunications thanks to developments in 5G, Artificial Intelligence, Digital Transformation and IoT. What can we expect from connected cars and chatbots in five years? How can we prepare ourselves for the future? How can the Telecom industry survive and innovate versus other players like Google, Facebook, Amazon and other Online Service Providers.
