The Future of Telecom Services – How to stay relevant in a 2.0 world - Stockholm, 14/15 October 2010
ETIS held its ETIS Community Gathering in Stockholm on 14/15 October 2010. The Gathering was held in conjunction with the 40th Management Board hosted by TeliaSonera on 13 October. The ETIS Community Gathering brought together our members from the European Telecom operators to share knowledge on key ICT issues facing the Telecom industry.
Telcos were struggling to stay relevant in a world dominated by over the top players, web 2.0, cloud services, social networking and fast changing consumer patterns. Responding to this critical issue the theme of the ETIS Community Gathering was: ‘The Future of Telecom Services – How to stay relevant in a 2.0 world’.
The Gathering began with a common session focusing on the future of Telecom services, with an emphasis on how service providers could position themselves to achieve full value out of their next generation network investments, as well as how to monetize new services, applications and partnerships. The remainder of day 1 and all of day 2 were dedicated to our ETIS Working Groups: Information Security, Enterprise Architecture, Procurement & Vendor Management, Business Intelligence & Data Warehouse, Billing, Customer Self-Service and the CIO Executive Forum.
Both the common session and the parallel working group meetings provided the opportunity for participant to learn from one another on how to do better business in the future.
The Gathering was an ideal opportunity for all of the ETIS members, associates and partners to get to know one another, learn about each other's activities, plans and expectations and above all, share knowledge. In addition to the education programmes, there were plenty of unique opportunities for networking, with lunches, networking breaks and an executive dinner.
